Following SCOTUS decisions, Celebs and Prop 8 plaintiffs announce engagements!

Proposition 8 plaintiffs Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo got engaged (Paul popped the question) shortly after the Supreme Court dismissed the Prop 8 case for lack of standing. Congrats!

Kristin Bell and Dax Shepard got engaged in 2009, but Bell was quoted as saying “I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends.” Today though, after the Supreme Court's historic ruling on the DOMA and dismissal of Proposition 8, the pair took to Twitter to begin their wedding planning anew. The couple recently welcomed their first child, named Lincoln.
