According to People.com, the House of Lies actress and Parenthood star, who are a few months into their pregnancy, are both "so excited" and "ecstatic" over the news.
The couple, who began dating in 2007, have openly talked about their decision to remain unmarried until all Americans can do the same. "We wouldn't want to invite all of our friends who don't have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just don't feel right about that,” Shepard said in July. Bell concurred: "Can you think about how rude that would feel?"
Bell, who is currently shooting the second season of House of Lies, is feeling great now after some morning sickness during the first few weeks.
