7 Times Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Nailed #ParentingGoals



There are some celebrity couples that you swear are the real deal and destined to make it (and sometimes you’re wrong; RIP Channing and Jenna Tatum), and Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard definitely fall into that camp. Their commercials feel like an adorable peek behind the curtain of their life, and the fact that they talk openly about using marriage counseling to get ahead of problems in their relationship gives hope to the rest of us.

These 7 things only add to their allure, I promise.

#7. They keep it real about getting fed up

She told Us Weekly, “we switch kids a lot. I’ll just be like, ‘I don’t want to talk to this kid anymore.'”

Hey. It happens.

#6. Getting through labor any way she can…

Bell made the best of laboring by taking a swing around her IV pole to “open up her hips.”

#5. They have messes like the rest of us

On Instagram, she described this photo as the inside of her house…and her brain.

Same here.

#4. Keeping it real while talking childbirth with a friend

There’s a rubber band, a watermelon, and a promise that stitches can fix you right up.

#3. They’re kids have walked in on them having sex

“We didn’t, like, continue. We just sort of went like, ‘Hey, what’s up? What do you need?”

It’s all about the spin.

#2. Kristen keeps it real about breastfeeding

She told Cafe Mom “If it makes you uncomfortable, it’s your responsibility to move away, not mine to cover up?”


#1. And she wasn’t afraid to talk about how pregnancy isn’t magical for everyone

Kristen didn’t feel a connection to her daughter until she had been born. It’s totally normal, but most people feel like they can’t talk about it!
