They've been engaged since the end of 2009, but on Wednesday morning Kristen Bell proposed to Dax Shepard in celebration of the Supreme Court's decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act and Prop. 8. (Yes, he popped the question the first time.)
"@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove," she said on Twitter shortly after the decisions came down.
Shepard's tweeted reply?
"DOMA is dead. Prop 8 is dead. Now let's bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to Life!!!!"
The two, who welcomed baby daughter Lincoln in March, had famously said they would not marry until their gay and lesbian friends could legally do so. Hence the years-long engagement.
"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 best friends," Bell told the Advocate early last year. "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."
