Just nine days after saying "I do" to longtime beau Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell is feeling the newlywed bliss.
"I'm still on a high," she told PEOPLE at Saturday's Frozen press junket in New York. "We actually did it. I can officially call him my husband, which is pretty awesome. Other than that, it feels exactly the same."
Engaged since 2009, Bell, 33, and Shepard, 38, quietly wed at the Beverly Hills County Clerk's Office on Oct. 17. The couple, who are parents to 7-month-old daughter Lincoln, waited to tie the knot until California legalized same-sex marriage, which happened in June.
With a healthy baby and a loving bond with her Parenthood actor husband, "Life is great," said Bell. "I couldn't be happier."

It's official: Dax Shepard and longtime love Kristen Bell have tied the knot, the actress confirms.
The actors have been together since 2007 and have a 7-month-old daughter, Lincoln, born in March. They have always maintained they would not wed until gay couples could legally do so in the state of California.
"We would feel weird taking advantage of a right that's not available to certain citizens of the state we live in," Bell, who stars on House of Lies, told PEOPLE in August 2012.

As anyone who isn't Nell knows, this week Prince William and Duchess Catherine welcomed their son, Prince George Alexander Louis, in an event that nearly took over the internet with second-by-second commentary on everything from Kate's hair (she looked like she just stepped out of a salon, not the delivery room) to the baby's Seinfeldian name (George Costanza, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus). But more happened this week than just the birth of a babe who may or may not celebrate Festivus. So read on for your Internet fix:

The Supreme Court's historic ruling striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and overturning California's Prop 8 means that a lot more couples are going to get married.

The twosome, who originally got engaged in late 2009 and welcomed daughter Lincoln in March, reaffirmed that they would now tie the knot after Tweeting their support of the Supreme Court's decisions Wednesday when Bell Tweeted a proposal – and Shepard replied, ahem, enthusiastically. (His first Tweet included language NSFW.)
