Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard Marry In Impulsive Courthouse Ceremony

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are finally married. The longtime lovebirds have been engaged for years and even have a kid together, but for years, they refused to marry in a show of solidarity until everyone in California’s gay community shared the same rights. Well, with the Defense Of Marriage Act officially struck down and no obstacles standing in their way, the two exchanged their I-Dos in an extremely intimate and impulsive ceremony this week.

According to TMZ, the two headed for the court house in Beverly Hills to get a marriage license. While there, they got to talking to an employee and long story short, the employee wound up taking them in a private room in the back and performing the ceremony. Given how few people were involved, it’s not a big shock a ton of details haven’t emerged, but witnesses are saying a photographer took some snapshots and the bride did her fair share of crying.

For most couples, agreeing to marry impulsively inside a courthouse would be considered a bit of a shock, but these two have always been very upfront about their desire to tie the knot in such a fashion. They spend so much of their lives at work being watched by other people that it was apparently more appealing to do something just for themselves.

Bell and Shepard have always come across like a stable, loving couple. They seem to provide each other with a nice balance, and courthouse or not, there’s no reason to think they won’t spend a lot of good years together moving forward. As such, Pop Blend wishes the two nothing but the best as they embark on the rest of their lives.

As a short reminder of how cute they are, I’ve gone ahead and embedded the epic sloth video below…
