“I can confirm that Kristen and Dax are expecting their second child and a sibling for Lincoln," a spokesperson for the couple told Entertainment Tonight. "The whole family is beyond excited."

The couple's daughter Lincoln Bell Shepard is now 15 months old.

Kristen and Dax began dating in late 2007 and became engaged in January 2010.

The pair were married in October 2013, in a famously low-key ceremony that cost just $144.

The couple had previously stated that they would not have a wedding of their own until same-sex couples could also get married.

The petite 33-year-old and her husband, also an actor, support the #NoKidsPolicy, which takes action against photographers harassing celebrities' children in order to take photographs.

“By creating a greatly diminished demand for these images, it is my hope that these children will no longer be subjected to being followed, yelled at, taunted and having their privacy invaded on a daily basis," Kristen told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year.

"Hopefully, these children can return to their routines without having cameras relentlessly pointed at them.”

Video of the Day

Kristen loves being a mother to Lincoln, but has admitted in the past that it can be hard to juggle so many things at once and stay focused.

“My sister has four kids. Having one kid — I can imagine how hard it is to have more than one,” she said.

“Everything in my head is what’s hard about multi-tasking. Thinking about another task while trying to stay present. When I’m home, I put my phone high up on a shelf and don’t check it.”
