Marriage isn't always sunshine and daisies—it's hard work. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, who have always been very honest about their relationship, will be the first to tell you this. And despite their consistently high-wattage levels of cuteness, Bell opened up about the less-glamorous aspect of marriage and how it's made her and Shepard stronger.
"We've gotten a lot older and it's evident," Bell told ET on the red carpet of last night's People's Choice Awards. "We've changed a ton, but for the better. Our relationship was turbulent when we started, but there was a very strong attraction that was obviously physical but also emotional, mental, intellectual, and we worked through a lot of our own problems to get to a really good marriage." See, hard work pays off!
The two have been married for three years, but have been together since 2007 (almost 10 years!). In fact, Shepard recently posted the most adorable photo of them from nine years ago, thanking Bell for always being an "optimist." Now, the beloved couple are happier than ever and have quite the cute family to boast about. Apparently daughters Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 2, even tried to help Bell get ready for the PCAs! "My kids were all over me but somehow I managed to leave the house not covered in food," she joked. "That's not a secret but something I'm quite proud of." We'd definitely call that a win!
