Kristen Bell Confirms Marriage to Dax Shepard Via Twitter
How sweet it is! Kristen Bell took to Twitter just one day after she and longtime love Dax Shepard said "I do" in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Oct. 17, confirming that the pair had indeed tied the knot in a super low-key ceremony.
"Wife coffee tastes way better than regular coffee in the morning," she shared with fans, tagging Shepard's Twitter handle.
On Thursday, the couple was at the Beverly Hills County Clerk's Office picking up their marriage license when they decided on the spur of the moment to take up a court employee's offer to marry them in a nearby courtroom, TMZ first reported.
Bell, 32, was reportedly shedding tears as they exchanged vows.
The House of Lies actress and Shepard, 38, have been engaged since the 2009 holidays, but famously refused to make things official until same-sex marriage bans were overturned nationwide (the couple are already parents to daughter Lincoln, 7 months.)
Almost immediately following the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act this past June, Bell proposed to Shepard -- on Twitter!
"It wasn't any particular pressure put on them, but having a baby now did push them towards making everything a bit more official, just to be seen as husband and wife officially for the sake of Lincoln," a source tells Us.
"They are both great parents and love being with each other constantly," the source added.
