The engaged couple announced the birth of their first child.
Kristen Bell gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Lincoln Bell Shepard, Wednesday afternoon.
About two hours ago, Dax Shepard tweeted: “Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom’s beauty and dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!”
Kristen Bell’s birth plan: Whiskey and drugs >>
The comedic theme followed, with Kristen Bell tweeting about an hour later, “My new roomate (sic) poops her pants and doesn’t pay rent…basically @daxshepard1 pre-sobriety 🙂 welcome baby Lincoln xo.”
People magazine reports Bell, 32, and Shepard, 38, announced they were expecting a baby in November 2012. Bell joked that she was open to lots of delivery styles as long a she could feel as little pain as possible. “I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back,” said Bell. “I just want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it’s over, because I’ve seen the videos and it looks terrifying.”
The Los Angeles Times reports Kristen and Dax have been a couple since 2007 but are not in a rush to get married. “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 [gay and lesbian] friends,” said Bell to Advocate magazine. Shepard asked Bell to marry him over the holidays in 2009.
Congrats to Kristen and Dax on Lincoln Bell Shepard!
