Think of the celebrity couple you’d most want to be adopted by. Are you thinking of it now? Good. It’s Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, right? (It better be, or else we can’t be friends anymore.)
Well regardless of whether you got it right or wrong, you have absolutely no right to be anything but thrilled by the news I’m about to drop — they’re having another baby! Huzzah and hoopla and all wonderful things! Their first child, Lincoln, was born a little over a year ago, and Dax and Kristen have made me fall more in love with their parenting style on every day since, so I really couldn’t be happier about this. Not least because it wasn’t announced as a rumor through a magazine or something; this is legit news, straight from the mouth of a spokesperson for the couple.
“Kristen and Dax are expecting their second child and a sibling for Lincoln. The whole family is beyond excited.”
Family? The whole WORLD is beyond excited! Babies are always cute and fun and adorable, but this baby will be particularly all of these things, because it will be born to two of the greatest people in show business. And on the planet, really. They don’t even want pictures of Lincoln online, for cripes sake, because they want to leave her the option later in life to establish (or not establish!) her own social media presence, once she’s old enough to make that call. UGH I LOVE THEM.
Think I’m being too effusive about how wonderful they are? I’m not, but fine! Go get your own celeb adoptive parents! Because Dax and Kristen are mine, and Lincoln and Fetus and I couldn’t be happier with them.
