This one’s been a long time coming! Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard finally made their longtime union official by tying the knot.
The duo reportedly went down to the county clerk’s office, simply to obtain a marriage license, but decided to take up a court employee’s offer to marry them on the spot! TMZ reports that a photographer was present, and that the Veronica Mars star shed tears while saying “I Do.”
The no-frills ceremony isn’t quite shocking, and as Kristen previously told Star, it was their plan all along. “We aren’t having a wedding,” she admitted. “We could literally go to the court tomorrow and just sign the papers.”
Kristen and Dax announced their engagement in early 2010, but made a clear statement that they would not wed until same-sex marriage was legal. When the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act this summer, the actress re-proposed to her fiance on Twitter.
The actors are parents to one daughter, 7-month-old Lincoln.
