‘I Have Learned A Lot From Dax’: Kristen Bell On Husband Dax Shepard

The couple talk about their parenting style.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are partners in love, parenting, and diapers, to name a few things. While the duo is best known for their roles in films and television shows, as well as their Armchair Expert Umbrella podcasting empire, their affordable, plant-based Hello Bello diaper line — which has since expanded to include dozens of other family-friendly products — has established them as major players in the parenting essentials industry. They have inaugurated the first Hello Bello diaper factory in Waco, Texas, a vivid and playful space designed by Waco royalty Chip and Joanna Gaines and their Magnolia design team.

The pair spoke to Yahoo Life from their bright new factory about their foray into the baby product industry as well as their personal lives as parents to two children, Lincoln, 8, and Delta, 6.

Bell praises her husband’s “soft but firm” parenting style, saying, “I have learned a lot from Dax. I don’t want to admit that, but I am a nurturer by nature. Instinctually, I am able to take care of their needs when they’re crying or when there’s a bad emotion, but setting boundaries is much, much harder for me.”

Dax Shepard, on the other hand, Kristen Bell portrays as someone with “strong boundaries” who can express them gently and “peacefully.”

They’ve talked about how she can better stick to her own boundaries, “not because I need to be a harder parent, but because it’s actually better for the child to have a little bit of rules and regulations,” she says.

Shepard adds, “I don’t have an opinion on how lenient or not lenient I would want Kristen to be. I just want her to be consistent in whatever that is. So if you can sleep in our bed some nights, what night is it? Is it Wednesdays and Fridays? I just think it’s the anxiety of the kids trying to figure out when this privilege can be cashed in and when it can’t.”

“And he was a hundred percent correct because when I started doing that, they immediately got better,” Bell says. “The reality is I can be talked in or out of anything.”

Though they joke that when they’re at home, they’re “lodging a lot of complaints,” the stars, who have been married since 2013, have a lot of appreciation for each other. “I can’t handle it,” Shepard admits of Bell’s ability to remain on top of their daughters’ academics and admin. She emphasises his warm feelings for their daughters.

On Instagram, the 41-year-old “Veronica Mars” actress gushed over her 46-year-old husband Dax Shepard. Bell shared a photo of the two of them sharing a “late night snack.”

Dax Shepard donned a printed black tee, while Kristen Bell chose a baggy white top with blue designs. The latter wore no makeup, allowing her flawless beauty to shine through. With his right hand, the “Employee of the Month” actor was holding a deep plate full of food, and both were holding a spoon.

Bell captioned the Instagram photo, “When your man brings up a healthy, perfectly sauced late night snack – unprompted-with TWO spoons…KEEP HIM.”
