Kristen Bell Proposes to Dax Shepard Via Twitter
Today is a day that many have been waiting for their entire lives. The Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. While gay couples have been waiting for their rights, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard vowed to wait to marry until all of their friends could.
Bell told CNN that she doesn’t believe in sitting back while her friends can’t do everything she is doing.
“We’re not going to have a party when half of our friend… can’t do that thing we’re doing,” she said. “We’re not going to ask them to come celebrate a right they don’t have. That’s just tacky!”
Kristin Bell proposed to her fiance of two years, Dax Shepard, via Twitter after DOMA was declared unconstitutional.
“@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove”
Dax responded in his own, funny way.
“DOMA is dead. Prop 8 is dead. Now let’s bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to life!!!!”
Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Planning Wedding, Raising Baby
Dax and Kristen welcomed their first child, Lincoln Bell Shepard, earlier this year. Kristen’s rep released a statement to E! News.
“They have been engaged for 2 1/2 years and have been waiting for this day so they can officially wed. They are beyond thrilled for their friends in the gay community.”
Bell and Shepard will have a busy year ahead. Planning a wedding, raising a baby, and Kristen is shooting the Veronica Mars movie this summer. It’s so great to see one of my favorite celebrity couples finally tying the knot!
