Los Angeles – Actors Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell exchanged vows in a “no frills” ceremony on Thursday. As reported by Us Weekly, the pair, who are parents to 7-month old daughter Lincoln, got married at the Beverly Hills County Clerk’s Office.
According to the report, Bell, 32, and Parenthood star Shepard, 38, purportedly showed up at the office to obtain a marriage license, but ended up going forward with a courtroom ceremony.
The Hollywood couple became engaged in 2009, but previously vowed they would not get married until bans on same-sex marriage in the country had been overturned. Bell is quoted as stating in August of last year, “I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends… It’s just kind of rude to invite everyone to a party for a rite not everyone can hold.”
The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act in June.
