Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell reportedly get married while applying for marriage license

Published Oct. 21, 2013

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell reportedly wed on Thursday, but there was no lavish ceremony involved. Instead, the pair ran off and got married at the Beverly Hills County Clerk's Office. Hey, have you priced party space rentals lately?

The couple, who announced their engagement in 2010, allegedly went to the office just to get a marriage license, TMZ reports, but made the plunge after a court employee said they could just get married right then if they wanted to. They wanted to.

The pair had put off tying the knot until gay marriage was legalized. Bell, 32, re-proposed to Shepard, 38, on Twitter this summer after the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act and California ditched Proposition 8. They have a daughter, Lincoln Bell Shepard, who was born in March. There was a photographer at the courthouse, so keep an eye on Twitter for that pic. So romantic!
