Huntington Woods native Kristen Bell and her fiance Dax Shepard of Milford are expecting a baby, according to reports.
The actors, who don't plan to wed until gay marriage is legal in California, told PEOPLE.com they are expecting their first child in late spring.
“They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic," PEOPLE reported a friend of the couple said. "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.”
The pair has been together since 2007 and got engaged in 2009, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“I don't believe in standing in the way of love, and I want to stand up for that right," Bell told CNN.com in an interview this summer as she and Dax promoted their film Hit & Run.
"We're not going to have a party when half of our friends ... can't do that thing we're doing," Shepard said during the CNN interview. "We're not going to ask them to come celebrate a right they don't have. That's just tacky!"
Shepard, 37, stars in the NBC drama Parenthood and Bell, 32, also narrates Gossip Girl as the title character, according to the Associated Press.
