Kristen Bell Proposes To Dax Shepard After DOMA Ruling

The Supreme Court finally ruled that the federal ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, which means Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard will finally tie the knot -- along with millions of other gay Americans whose right to marry was previously denied.

The couple, who welcomed a baby girl in March, decided that they weren't going to get married until marriage equality existed in the U.S:

"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. That’s why we’ve been so hesitant, ” she told The Advocate in 2012. “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.”

And to celebrate the Defense Of Marriage Act being struck down, Bell took the opportunity to propose to Shepard via Twitter:

Shepard has yet to respond to her Twitter proposal, but somehow we have a good feeling he'll say yes.

UPDATE: He said YES!
