When these two welcomed their daughter Lincoln in March, we literally laughed out loud over their spouse-deprecating Twitter announcements. "Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom's beauty and dad's obsession with breasts. Hooray!" the "Parenthood" actor tweeted. Added the new mommy: "My new roomate poops her pants and doesn't pay rent...basically @daxshepard1 pre-sobriety :) welcome baby Lincoln xo." And in June, after the Supreme Court's decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act and Prop. 8, Bell proposed to her man. Shepard had originally popped the question in 2009, but the couple was waiting for gay marriage to be legal before actually tying the knot themselves. "@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove," she said on Twitter shortly after the decisions came down. "DOMA is dead. Prop 8 is dead. Now let's bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to Life!!!!" In October, these cuties got hitched in a low-key courtroom ceremony.

"The Big Bang Theory" star, 27, announced her engagement to tennis player Sweeting in September after only three months of dating. And what better way to celebrate another month of togetherness than with a televised faux wedding on "Ellen"? "I am very, very happy," Cuoco said. "Life is so good right now, I cannot even tell you, we are so happy." The actress admitted that the relationship is "newer" and knew that "it looks a little crazy to some people," but their romance just took off as soon as they went on their first date. "By day two, I was like, oh, my God, it hit me. It's so unbelievable, I said, 'This is it, this is it, this is it...' " DeGeneres pointed out that Cuoco doesn't "dilly dally, you just get right to it," so she offered up an expedited ceremony to keep with the couple's tradition, since Sweeting was backstage anyway. And that was it, the two excitedly tied the "not" on national television for all to see.
