risten Bell and Dax Shepard are #relationshipgoals like no other Hollywood couple. The actors are both hilarious, beautiful people who are over-the-moon in love with each other.
But the best thing about their relationship is that they're upfront about the struggles they've faced and the fact that marriage is hard work. Neither of them professes to be perfect, and while their love is definitely worthy of envy, it's not because it's always rainbows and butterflies in the Bell-Shepard household.
It's because they trust each other and care for each other enough to work out their issues when they arise. Kristen Bell recently appeared on Harry, where she got real about an old bad habit that Shepard wouldn't tolerate, and the way she talks about it is seriously mature.
You might know Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard from their role as the absolute cutest, most adorable couple in Hollywood.
Oh yeah, they’re also in movies and stuff — Kristen Bell is an actual Disney princess*.
*Anna from Frozen is a princess no matter what Disney says!
Look, here they are being cute again.
They can’t help themselves.
The couple got married in 2013, though they’d already been together for many years.
They've always been upfront about the fact that their relationship hit a few bumps at the very beginning.
In an interview with Playboy, Shepard said, “Kristen’s a good girl. She grew up very Christian, went straight to college, did great in school, and started work immediately. She’s charitable and philanthropic and rescues dogs. So when we met, our backgrounds were opposites. All the things I’d done were terrifying to her, and she had a hard time believing I would ever be able to stay married and monogamous and a father and all those things.”
According to Shepard, they did a lot of fighting in their first year and a half together.
All couples face challenges, and it’s extremely refreshing and reassuring to learn that couples we all admire go through the same stuff we do.
In a recent appearance on Harry, Kristen Bell got real about those fights in the first year or so of her relationship with Shepard.
While she and Shepard have both been honest about their struggles before, it’s not every day we hear this kind of candidness from a celebrity couple.
Wait ’til you hear what she said…
