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.
