With DOMA overturned and gay marriage legal in California, all those celebrities who said they weren't tying the knot until gay couples could do the same have had their bluff called. So far, at least one such couple appears to be moving forward with a wedding: Following the Supreme Court's DOMA ruling, Kristen Bell tweeted to longtime fiance (and the father of her baby) Dax Shepard, "@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove." He replied, "DOMA is dead. Prop 8 is dead. Now let's bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to Life!!!!"
