'When in Rome' stars Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are engaged!
Kristen Bell's scattered single-gal character in "When in Rome" juggles a gang of suitors on the big screen. Behind the scenes she has just one, and they're getting hitched -- Bell is engaged to "Rome" co-star Dax Shepard.
A rep for the blond confirmed to People magazine that Shepard proposed over the holidays. The pair began dating in 2007, after a five-year stint with her then-fiance Kevin Mann. Shepard has been linked to Jessica Simpson and Kate Hudson before putting a ring on it.
Speaking of the ring, Bell was given a Neil Lane diamond. The emerald-cut stone clocks in at 3 carats and has a touch of champagne color.
Shepard will be seen in the forthcoming NBC pilot "Parenthood" alongside Lauren Graham. Bell just wrapped her part in the anticipated "Burlesque" with Cher and Christina Aguilera.
