Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard Expecting First Child

Kristen Bell, is pregnant, the actress' rep tells Us Weekly. This will be the first child for the When in Rome costars, who got engaged in 2009 after two years of dating.

Even with a baby on the way, don't expect the L.A.-based couple to tie the knot anytime soon. "The reason we're not rushing to get married is because I don't feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that's denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends," Bell, 32, told The Advocate in February. "That's why we've been so hesitant. Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We're just standing up for what we believe in. Period."

While promoting their movie Hit and Run in August, Shepard said neither he nor Bell would have any qualms about having a child out of wedlock. "We're not really worried about that," he said on Larry King Now.
