Bell and Shepard welcome baby girl

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell and her partner Dax Shepard have welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Lincoln Bell Shepard.

The 32-year-old actress welcomed a baby girl with her longtime partner, actor Dax Shepard.

Dax shared the happy news with fans via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.

"Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom's beauty and dad's obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!" he mused.

Late Wednesday night Kristen had uploaded a photo of her dog "eavesdropping" on her baby bump. She attached a picture of her adorable pup cuddled on her stomach.

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star began dating Dax in 2007. They announced they were expecting their first child back in November although they have been mum about the sex of the baby.

Kristen confessed she was terrified about going into labour as the countdown began earlier this year.

She joked about having nothing to prove when it comes to natural childbirth.

"I feel like, when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back and I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat," she joked to US television host Ellen DeGeneres back in January.

"And wake me up when it's over because I've seen the videos - and it looks terrifying."

Dax and Kristen have spoken in the past about putting off plans to wed until the US government legalises same-sex marriage.
