Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard married?

Los Angeles: Actress Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have reportedly tied the knot in a small courtroom ceremony.

The actors have been engaged since 2010 and they have finally made their romance official, reported TMZ online.

Bell and Shepard were hoping to just obtain a marriage license at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office, but when a court employee offered to marry them on the spot, the couple agreed, and the ceremony was held in a nearby courtroom.

A photographer was present to capture the nuptials, during which Bell wept tears of joy.

Bell previously said that the couple did not want to wed until same-sex marriage was legal in America; gay unions are now recognised by the federal government.

The 33-year-old actress also said she wasn`t keen on a big, lavish wedding.

"It is not a desire of either of ours to have any sort of day of celebration for us. I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper.

"Honestly, I could go home and we could do it today, there`s no forethought really going into it," she had said.

Bell and Shepard welcomed a baby daughter in May.
