OMG! People reports that ‘Hit and Run‘ co-stars (and real-life couple) Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are expecting their first child together. Kristen and Dax have been engaged for three years, but Kristen’s made no secret of the fact that she doesn’t feel compelled to get married.
“They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” a close friend of the couple tells PEOPLE.
“Kristen had a little bit of morning sickness early on but she just started shooting the second season of House of Lies and is feeling great now.”
Kristen and Dax said this summer while promoting ‘Hit and Run’ that they would probably have children before getting married, partly because not everyone can legally get married.
“We wouldn’t want to invite all of our friends who don’t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just don’t feel right about that,” Shepard said on The View in July. Added Bell: “Can you think about how rude that would feel?”
There hasn’t been any official confirmation from either Kristen’s or Dax’s rep. So IF this story is true (and People’s pretty good about confirming things before reporting it), then congratulations! The baby reportedly is due in late spring.
