NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Kristen Bell and her fiance, Dax Shepard, have babies on the brain.

Bell's representative, Marcel Pariseau, says the couple are expecting their first child in late spring.

Shepard, 37, appears on the NBC drama "Parenthood." Bell, 32, has a role on Showtime's "House of Lies," also starring Don Cheadle. She also narrates "Gossip Girl" as the show's title character.

Shepard and Bell co-starred in the film "Hit & Run" this summer which Shepard also wrote and directed.

Earlier this year, Bell joked that she and Shepard had no problem working together because they are "severely co-dependent."

The couple, both originally from Michigan, started dating in 2007. They have been engaged for about three years.
