Kristen Bell is pregnant, reports People

Will it be a Gossip Girl? Or an Astro Boy? Actress Kristen Bell — of the aforementioned show and film, as well as “Veronica Mars” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” — is expecting her first child with fiancee Dax Shepard, People reports.

“They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” a close friend of the couple said to People. “Kristen had a little bit of morning sickness early on but she just started shooting the second season of ‘House of Lies’ and is feeling great now.”

The actress, 32, and actor, 37, have been engaged for nearly three years.

Let’s hope that Shepard’s role in NBC’s “Parenthood” has prepped him well for this new challenge. Perhaps Bell can decorate the nursery with sloths?
