(Newser) – Adorable, sloth-loving celebrity couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard will soon be adorable, sloth-loving celebrity parents, their rep tells People. Bell and Shepard—who have been engaged for almost three years—said this summer that babies would probably come before marriage, since they want to wait until gay marriage is legal before they get hitched. They've been together since 2007, and this baby—expected in the spring—will be their first child. "They’re so excited—they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents," says a friend.

A first baby is also on the way in April for actress Beverley Mitchell, People reports. One of the first people to hear the good news: Mitchell's Seventh Heaven co-star and best friend, Jessica Biel. "I started crying," says Mitchell. "It was really exciting to share that with Auntie Jess." Mitchell says attending Biel's recent wedding to Justin Timberlake while pregnant was "definitely an experience."
