It’s arguably not often that Hollywood romances have happy endings. But after almost 12 years together, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have thus far proven that their relationship is an exception to the rule. And in January 2019 Shepard turned up on Ellen, where a certain special guest was waiting in the audience. What’s more, the cute moment that followed shows just why Shepard and Bell are pretty much couple goals.
While many stars seem to struggle to sustain long-term relationships, Bell and Shepard have been going solid for over a decade. And since they first began to date in 2007, the pair have steadily become one of our favorite celebrity couples. However, it wasn’t all love notes and sweet nothings when they first met.
Indeed, while speaking to Flare in 2013, Bell revealed that her initial encounter with Shepard at a birthday dinner had left her a little underwhelmed. “[It was] not electric,” she admitted to the publication about their first meeting. And Shepard hadn’t been overly impressed, either, as he bluntly revealed during a 2015 chat with Good Housekeeping.
