The actress payed the cutest tribute to her significant other, check it out!
The 40-year-old actress took on her Instagram account to express her love and birthday wishes to her husband of seven years, actor Dax Shepard. "It's my favourite day of the year! When I get to celebrate the birth of my very favorite human on earth, and spoil him till he rots!". She then gushed about Shepard's ability to grow and learn through difficult times, which the couple certainly faced in 2020.
The two met at a dinner party in 2007, where according to Bell, Shepard "wouldn't stop talking". While the Good Place actress didn't think much of it, she caught the comedian's eye. "I thought 'well, this person is very cute and interesting'", he recalled on a 2018 episode of his podcast, Armchair Expert. Two weeks later, they met again at a hockey game, started to flirt, and since then, have been going strong and steady —even in the face of adversity.
Shepard has been very open about his past drug use, and in early 2020 he revealed that he had relapsed after breaking his hand at an ATV accident, and dealing with multiple injuries after a motorcycle accident. Thankfully, he was able to get back on track with the help of Bell, his friends, and family.
At the time, the Veronica Mars star shared the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, stating "The thing I love most about Dax is that he was able to tell me and tell us and say, 'We need a different plan.'"
