Kristen Bell has been married to Dax Shepard since 2013: The duo share two children!  

Kristen Bell has been America's sweetheart for a while now. Bell is known and loved for her roles in Veronica Mars, Heroes, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Bad Moms. Moreover, she is also a Singer, activist, entrepreneur, and children's book author. And here, learn about Kristen's personal life!

Born on July 18, 1980, in Huntington Woods, Michigan, Bell's incoming life in entertainment stemmed from her childhood, when she would actively participate in her school's productions. She made her film debut in the 2001 comedy Pootie Tang and has been a staple in comedies ever since.

Although Bell and Dax have been married for nearly ten years, the pair's initial thoughts about each other weren't pleasant. Actor Dax recalls perceiving the actress as pompously and unnecessarily happy, and Bell's thoughts on Shepard was "he talked too much." 

The duo's disfavouring opinions about each other changed after their second meet-up! Kristen and Shepard met at the Detroit Red Wings hockey game in 2007.   

Four months into their dating bliss, the love birds separated over not being on the same page. Bell, being a serial monogamist, wanted surety and stability. Shepard was experimenting with his way into relationships after just coming out of a long relationship.

Bell dated producer Kevin Mann before Shepard. The House of Lies actress and Kevin were together for five years before they split ways in 2007. However, little is known about Bell's long-dissolved relationship with the producer. 

Following their split, Kristen shared that she believes herself to be an ardent monogamist, but just the improbability of monogamy made her reluctant to date. 

Bell said, "(Dating) makes me want to vomit. And not out of grossness—OK, a little bit out of grossness."

The Michigan native doesn't have any bad blood with her ex-boyfriend. And, in fact, Bell continues to be friends with Kevin. The ex-partners have worked on Fanboys and three short films.
