LOS ANGELES, June 26 (UPI) -- Actress Kristen Bell tweeted a marriage proposal to Dax Shepard after learning of the U.S. Supreme Court's gay marriage rulings Wednesday.

Shepard quickly responded with a yes, the Los Angeles Times reported. The couple, who have been an item since 2007 and have a baby daughter, broke off their previous engagement, saying they would not marry until their gay and lesbian friends were free to do so.

Bell's proposal was simple: "@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove."

The response was also short: "DOMA is dead. Prop 8 is dead. Now let's bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to Life!!!!"

Shepard proposed the last time the couple got engaged, in 2010, the Times said.

Bell and Shepard co-starred in last year's "Hit and Run," which Shepard wrote and co-directed.
