I know they’ve only been parents for a few months, but Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard–always one of my favorite, adorable celebrity couples–have upgraded their status to Best Celebrity Mom and Dad EVER. I mean, they were even super cute before they were officially parents.. remember when they took a picture of Dax’s dying father touching Kristen’s belly? I think I cried for an hour after reading that.
Gentle readers, if yesterday’s post about Andrew Garfield unabashedly admiring Emma Stone didn’t make you want to re-think your romantic relationship decisions, then reading what Dax Shepard has to say about his baby girl, Lincoln, will undoubtedly make you aware of your uterus for the first time:
“When I look at her, it’s like when I was in 7th grade and fell in love for the first time, where it’s debilitating. That’s available 24/7 if I want, which is amazing.”
Gahhhh. I hear a ticking sound and I’m almost certain it’s my biological clock telling me I might not completely abhor the idea of children or giving up (some) selfishness after all. Someday. In the future. I hate it when that happens! But seriously, I love everything about this couple. They don’t make a big show of their relationship, they’ve already made it clear that their baby will only have a life in the public eye if she wants one (without the drama of Kimye and baby North), and Kristen has made it clear she was in no rush to follow the unhealthy Hollywood trend of “shedding” her baby weight within minutes of giving birth.
Naturally, Dax was asked when he and fiance Kristen Bell are “getting married already,” (I’m assuming the reporter was really just a Nana from Long Island) he responded: “I’m sure it will be a quick something.” Yep, sounds perfect to me.
