Everyone knows that Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are not only the cutest couple in the world but they somehow also manage to do it without making anyone want to puke.
This is probably because the actors are both super down-to-earth, very honest, and completely hilarious.
They’re always very open about marriage and how much work it is, but how happy they are to do the work because they love each other so much. They’ve talked about Bell’s toxic behavior that almost broke them up. They’ve discussed how Shepard wasn’t really that into marriage but eventually made the decision to propose.
They’ve brought up how crucial couples’ therapy is for their marriage. And they celebrate each other constantly—Bell even put an amazing sober anniversary congratulations post on Instagram for Shepard’s fourteenth year without using.

To the man mocked me in our wedding photos because I cried too many tears of joy, Who wore a baby Bjorn for 2 straight years to show his girls how to be as adventurous as possible, Who held our dear little shakey mann pup for 8 hrs straight on the day we had to put him down, I know how much you loved using. I know how much it got in your way. And I know, because I saw, how hard you worked to live without it. I will forever be in awe of your dedication, and the level of fierce moral inventory you perform on yourself, like an emotional surgery, every single night. You never fail to make amends, or say sorry when its needed. You are always available to guide me, and all of our friends, with open ears and tough love when its needed most. You have become the fertilizer in the garden of our life, encouraging everyone to grow. I'm so proud that you have never been ashamed of your story, but instead shared it widely, with the hope it might inspire someone else to become the best version of themselves. You have certainly inspired me to do so. I love you more than I ever thought I could love anyone, and I want you to know, I see you. I see how hard you work. You set an excellent example of being human. Happy 14th year sobriety birthday, @daxshepard. Xoxo
So with it being Mother’s Day on Sunday, it was no surprise when Shepard posted a toothache-inducingly sweet throwback post for Bell, the lovely mother of their two kids.

Thank you @kristenanniebell . Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are the most wonderful Mom, and I will be forever grateful to you for creating our love bugs. All of their best ingredients are from you. You are the softest, safest place for all three of us to hide. I love you. Happy Mother's Day ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
The picture showed Shepard and Bell wearing matching “Dad” and “Mom” Santa hats while standing on the beach (oh, Calfornia). Bell was pregnant with their second daughter, Delta (now 4), while Shepard held their first, Lincoln (now 5). They madesure to cover Lincoln’s head with a heart sticker (on the photo, not in real life) because the couple is very careful about protecting the identity of their children.
In the caption, Shepard wrote:

People on Instagram loved his post.
And just when you were about to cry from how sentimental it all is, Bell swooped in and totally changed the mood by posting a hysterical comment.
She wrote, “Dad pls call me asap we are having a problem with the TV and GOT isnt playing HELP.”
Ah, yes, the truly important things in life. It’s so nice when a couple finds a balance like this, and by balance I just mean that at least one of them is competent when it comes to technology and wiring.
Keep it up, you guys are our heroes.
