Today in Celebrity Wombs: Kristen Bell and Beverley Mitchell Are Both Knocked Up
Oh, and Beverley Mitchell — Jessica Biel‘s BFF and ‘7th Heaven’ co-star — announced she’s expecting, too.
The engaged Bell and Shepard said through their rep on Monday that they’ll welcome their sweet bundle of squalling neediness sometime in the spring. “They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” a friend the couple’s told PEOPLE.
But it shouldn’t come as too much of a shock that Bell is with child, as the politically-correct pair made it pretty clear that they’d probably become parents before tying the knot since they don’t plan to wed until gay marriage is legal in their home state of California.
“We wouldn’t want to invite all of our friends who don’t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just don’t feel [good] about that,” Shepard told the harpies on ‘The View’ back in July, with Bell adding, “Can you think about how rude that would feel?”
In other gynecological news, ‘7th Heaven’ star Mitchell also told a breathless public that she too is expecting a springtime baby — her first with husband Michael Cameron.
Let the mass knitting of baby booties commence.
