Kristen Bell Pregnant: Actress and Fiance Dax Shepard Expecting Their First Child

Kristen Bell's got a bun in the oven!

The "House of Lies" star, 32, and her fiance, Dax Shepard, 37, are expecting their first child in late spring, their rep confirms to People.

"They’re so excited -- they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents," a friend close to the couple reveals, adding, "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."

The "Hit and Run" co-stars began dating in 2007 and have been engaged for nearly three years, telling HuffPost Celebrity they won't officially tie the knot until same-sex marriage is legal in their home state of California.

Bell told Larry King in August that having kids before getting married "doesn't really bother" her and Shepard, who currently stars on NBC's "Parenthood."

Congrats to the happy couple!
