Dax Shepard is holding off on plans to wed fiance Kristen Bell until gay marriage is legalized in California.

The 37-year-old Shepard and actress Bell (House of Lies), 32, have been engaged since 2009.

In an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe to pitch his upcoming film Hit & Run, Shepard reiterated that the wedding is currently on hold.

When co-host Mika Brzezinski asked Shepard, “When are you getting married?” Shepard answered: “When all of our friends can also get married in California. So, whenever that happens we will. We don't want to have a ceremony that other people can't have.”

Shepard, who is best known for playing Crosby Braverman on the NBC sitcom Parenthood, wrote, directed and stars in Hit & Run, which also features Bell.

In February, Bell told gay glossy The Advocate: “The reason we're not rushing to get married is because I don't feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that's denied to my best friends.”
