BUMPING UP

Starting to show in December, youthful-looking Bell gets a cute chiding from her fiancé: "'you look like a fat 3rd grader' --@daxshepard1," she quotes. His retort? "@IMKristenBell, please report back to 3rd grade, where you have clearly escaped from."

DOGGONE IT

In February, with just a few weeks to go until baby's arrival, the couple's pup Lola gets antsy. "Lolas new tactic: sitting on the baby as much as possible, like a chicken to an egg. Begging the baby to come out soon :)," Bell writes on WhoSay.

SHOW OF STRENGTH

In a Tumblr post in late March, Shepard shares Bell's incredibly touching act for her father-in-law to-be, who passed away in December after battling small-cell carcinoma in a Detroit-area hospital. "She had flown in from LA without any warning … She lifted her shirt up and he put his hand on her swollen stomach. He was smiling from ear to ear, sitting contently, unable to put together a sentence, but still capable of connecting to the new family member we were creating … If I live to be a thousand, I will still be in debt to my wife for giving him that one last thrill."
