Lincoln Bell Shepard: Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard Welcome Baby Girl

Kristen Bell is finally a mom!

Bell gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday, March 28. Her fiance, Dax Shepard, took to Twitter to share the good news with fans.

Just last night, the actress tweeted a photo of her dog snuggling up to her baby bump and now her baby girl is here.

This is the first child for the 32-year-old "House of Lies" actress and her comedian beau, who have been dating since 2007 and have been engaged since 2009.

Bell revealed she was scared of giving birth for the first time.

"I’ve got nothing to prove," she told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month. "I feel like when I arrive at the hospital I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back. And, I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it’s over because I’ve seen the videos and it looks terrifying."

As for their marital status, the couple previously said they don't care about having a baby out of wedlock since not everyone in the county can legally marry yet, Us Weekly notes.

"Once it's official and everybody stops appealing it the minute before it passes, we'll get married," she said on "Larry King Now" last August. Shepard added, "We'll have them out of wedlock. We're not worried about that."

After she gets settled into motherhood, Bell has a movie role waiting for her. A Kickstarter campaign to get the television cult-hit "Veronica Mars" made into a movie in the summer of 2013 was a success. It surpassed its goal of reaching $2 million to secure over $4 million in funding. "I promise to give it my all," Bell wrote on the website. "I promise to work my hardest to give everyone a little bit more Veronica, and I will be oh so honored to do so."
