STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are the parents of a baby girl
  • The engaged couple announced her arrival on Twitter Thursday
  • Bell: 'She's kind of the best'

(CNN) -- It's a girl for Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard -- and no, the couple didn't name her Veronica, although fans of Bell's "Veronica Mars" TV show might've hoped for that.

Instead, the little one's name is Lincoln Bell Shepard, as the new parents announced on Twitter Thursday.

"She has mom's beauty and dad's obsession with breasts," "Parenthood" star Shepard, 38, tweeted.

Bell, 32, joked that her "new roomate poops her pants and doesn't pay rent ... basically @daxshepard1 pre-sobriety."

In more seriousness to another Twitter follower, the actress added, "she's kind of the best."

The engaged pair announced that they were expecting their first child in November, and Bell told Ellen DeGeneres in January that Shepard was already planning daddy-baby bonding activities.

"He is [excited], in different ways than I am," the new mom said. "He's just thinking about all the off-roading he'll have in this tiny partner."

Get ready, Lincoln! Now all she needs is a stuffed sloth.
