Later that year, in October 2013, they tied the knot in a low-key ceremony that was free of drama and fuss. In December 2014, they had a second child, another daughter that they named Delta Bell. While the couple has always seemed happy, they have been open about their occasional struggles and how they have turned to couples therapy in order to get through the rough patches. Their relatability and honesty have earned them many fans over the years.

They don’t take tons of extravagant overseas trips and prefer to take their vacations in their home state of Michigan. The couple and their daughters head to Michigan every year to enjoy some low-key fun in the sun, well away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. For Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, it seems the honeymoon still isn’t over.
