Actress Kristen Bell has reportedly married her long-term boyfriend Dax Shepherd.

The couple, who have been together for six years, have reportedly married in a simple, civil ceremony in a small Beverly Hills courtroom.

According to Us Weekely the pair went to the Bevely Hills County Clerk office to obtain a marriage licence and decided to tie the knot in a nearby courtroom.

The newlyweds, who became parents to their first child in March, had previously spoken about their nuptials saying they would be a very quiet affair.

Kristen said: "I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper."
