Kristen Bellproposedto Dax Shepard on Twitter in June, when the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and ruled that same-sex marriages should be allowed in California. (The actors had already announced their engagement in January 2010.)
TheVeronica Marsactress, 32, andParenthoodactor, 38, who are parents to baby daughter Lincoln, are said to have then taken up a court employee's offer to marry them on the spot in a nearby courtroom. Bell, says TMZ, cried.
Neither star has mentioned the news so far.
But it sounds like it was just the ceremony she wanted. When USA TODAY's Andrea MandellaskedBell about a wedding last year, she replied, "I don't want another day where I get dressed up and wear makeup and celebrate myself. We really don't want any attention for it."
UPDATE: Bell justtweetedout the official word, and in darn cute fashion:
"Wife coffee tastes way better than regular coffee in the morning :) @daxshepard1"
