You guys! Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard finally got married! Sure, they may have forgotten to tell us, but you know what? We’re totally fine with it. In fact, we’re more than fine with it; the story is so cute, I swear, it’s like Leslie and Ben’s Parks and Recreationwedding come to life.
TMZ was the first to break the news. We don’t know exactly when it happened, but apparently the couples headed on down to the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office recently for a low-fuss, no-frills ceremony. Somewhat hilariously, they hadn’t actually intended to tie the knot that day; they just went to get their marriage license. When a court employee, however, told them they could get the whole thing done that day, they said, “Why the heck not?”
All together, now: Awwwwwwwwwwwww!
Seriously, though. It’s so perfectly Kristen and Dax. They’ve been together since 2007 and engaged since 2010; however, they famously opted to wait to tie the knot until the state of California legalized same-sex marriage. Said Kristen in 2012, “We’ve been very vocal about not wanting to be married in a state that doesn’t allow that right to all of its citizens. We’ll wait until California gets on the right side of history.” When Proposition 8 was finally struck down at the end of June, Kristen proposed to Dax (again) via Twitter:

I don’t think I have to tell you whether or not he said yes.
The two actors are both parents to baby Lincoln, who was born in March, as well as my ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE CELEBRITY COUPLE EVER. Here’s to many glorious days ahead for the happy family!
