Congratulations are in order for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell.
The Parenthood actor and the House of Lies actress are expecting their first child in late spring, Us Weekly reports.
A close friend of the longtime couple tells PEOPLE: “They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents.”
The friend adds: “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.”
Together since 2007, Bell, 32, and Shepard, 37, have been engaged for nearly three years.
“We’ll do it. We’ll have some babies. It will be our gift to America,” Kristen has joked.
As for marriage, Kristen insists she’s in no rush: “The ring is on my finger,” she said. “That’s all I care about.”
