Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are going to be parents! The good news was confirmed by the actress' rep today, via Us Weekly. And the first picture of the pregnant star has been snapped!

The blonde was spotted out shopping last week and it's now clear that there's a bump underneath her flowing blouse. She smiled as photographers snapped away, but held onto the baby news for almost a week longer.

The pair has been engaged since 2009, but don't expect them to go rushing down the aisle now that there's a baby on the way. Both stars are adamant about putting off their nuptials until gay marriage is made legal across the board.

"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," Bell told The Advocate in February. "That's why we've been so hesitant. Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We're just standing up for what we believe in. Period."
