Kristen Bell
and Dax Shepard have tied the knot!

According to TMZ, the longtime partners and parents to baby Lincoln got married at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office on Thursday.

Kristen and Dax reportedly were only planning to get their marriage license, but an employee asked if they would prefer to be married that day. The couple agreed, and during the ceremony, Kristen was said to be crying.

The date is significant for the couple, as their wedding date coincided with Spirit Day, a GLAAD event centered on taking a stand against bullying, particularly for LGBT youth.

The pair was open that they had no desire to get hitched until marriage equality was legal, with Kristen, who supported Spirit Day on Twitter this week, proposing to Dax the day the Defense of Marriage Act was struck down by the Supreme Court.

Aside from the highly-anticipated “Veronica Mars” movie, Kristen’s “House of Lies” returns to Showtime in January.

The star also has a cameo in “Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular,” which airs Thanksgiving night on ABC. Dax stars on NBC’s “Parenthood,” which airs Thursday nights at 10pm.
