Kristen Bell, an American actress and singer, tears up while talking about her husband Dax Shepard. Bell opened up about her family, getting emotional when speaking about her husband’s difficult past.
“We got married in a tiny room in the Beverly Hills courthouse, and it was still one of the best days of my life,” Bell said on CBS’s Sunday Morning.
Dax Randall Shepard is an American actor, comedian, writer, and director. His best works are Employee of the Month (2006), Without a Paddle (2004), Idiocracy (2006), Let’s Go to Prison (2006), and Hit and Run (2012).
Kristen Bell met actor Shepard at the birthday party of a mutual friend; they started dating in late 2007. The couple stated their engagement in January 2010. They, however, decided to delay marriage until the state of California passed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage. After section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court on June 26, 2013, Bell asked Shepard to marry her through Twitter, which he accepted. They were married at the Beverly Hills County Clerk’s Office on October 17, 2013. They have two daughters: Lincoln Bell Shepard and Delta Bell Shepard.
“He’s a wonderful father,” she said. “He knows the value of things. He was an addict for many, many years and he pulled himself out of it, and he’s been sober for 11, 12 years now. … And he knows how many times he’s messed up and how many times he’s been really closing to losing everything.”
Bell has weakness on his family. That’s not to say the actress isn’t proud of her work. “I always think, if I’m on my deathbed, what am I gonna be thinking about? And it won’t be some random movie I participated in, or some TV show. It will be my family,” Bell said.
In September 2014, Dax starred with his wife, Kristen Bell, in a commercial for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. It was so popular (with over 20 million YouTube views) that they did another commercial for the holiday season. The ad agency McKinney was behind both.
“I don’t deserve to be here,” she said. “I worked hard, but I was also in the right place at the right time. And I’m really, really grateful for the jobs that I’ve had.” “Those big fish sometimes have a real hard time. They can’t – I can still go to the grocery store,” she said. “So I think I’m really happy with the size fish that I am.”
