Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell was one of the straight celebs who swore she wouldn't tie the knot until gay marriage was legal. Sure enough, on the day that Prop. 8 was struck down, the actress proposed to her baby daddy, Dax Shepard, via Twitter.

Brad Pitt also once said he would wait to tie the knot again until marriage was legal for all, but popped the question to Angelina Jolie long before DOMA was defeated.
