Veronica Mars is a mom! Erstwhile TV detective Kristen Bell and her fiance, actor Dax Shepard (currently seen making you cry a whole bunch on NBC's drama Parenthood and in his personal blog posts about his dying father), welcomed their first child together.
Proud father Shepard tweeted the happy news on Thursday, March 28:

Bell posted a picture of her dog cuddling up to her very pregnant belly the day before.

Shepard recently wrote about how Bell surprised his dying father with a trip to Detroit so he could meet their unborn baby.
"At one point, and unbeknownst to both of us, my wife walked into the room. She had flown in from LA without any warning. It was a surprise. It was an amazing, incredible, perfectly timed surprise. She lifted her shirt up and he put his hand on her swollen stomach. He left it there for the better part of an hour. He was smiling from ear to ear, sitting contently, unable to put together a sentence, but still capable of connecting to the new family member we were creating. He wasn’t going to make it to the birth, but that didn’t get in the way of him meeting the new baby. It was an emotional and triumphant moment. One I will never forget. If I live to be a thousand, I will still be in debt to my wife for giving him that one last thrill."
Congratulations to your current favorite Hollywood couple, who have almost certainly produced your next favorite celebrity baby.
