On her worries about becoming a mother: “I kept saying to Dax in all sincerity during my pregnancy, ‘I just don’t know how I’m going to like her as much as I like the dogs.’ I was being serious. Because I f–king love my dogs; they are my children. I love people the more i know them, and I didn’t know her. It could’ve been a water bottle in my belly, that’s about how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy. But within about 24 hours after she came out, my hormones reset, and they reprogrammed my feelings about her.”
On her and Dax Shepard’s Detroit past: “Dax and I would not have been friends in high school. He was a drug addict and he was wild, and I was very much a good girl who went to Catholic school. He is also five years older than I am, and he lived in Milford, which is a bit more drive-your-tractor-to-the-7-eleven-type Michigan, and I was closer to downtown Detroit.”
On secrets to a strong marriage: “Our main rule is: Check your ego at the door, and be aware of when the other person is spinning out. As artists, everything is vanity- and narcissism- driven: my career, the strategy behind it, the next level I want to hit, my photo shoot, how I was in my acting scene, my premiere. So we try to do a really good job of being human beings in the rest of our life.”

This October, there’s lots to celebrate in the Bell-Shepard household!
Earlier in the month, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard tied the knot following a three-year engagement, with the House of Lies actress telling PEOPLE, “I can officially call him my husband, which is pretty awesome.”
But the partying is set to continue with Halloween just around the corner, particularly as it will be daughter Lincoln‘s first.
“This has been a major topic of discussion because we don’t want to blow it,” Bell tells PEOPLE of how her family will coordinate costumes.
“We have friends that have really, really just nailed their costumes with their kids in the past, so we’re feeling a bit of pressure … There’s a lot of things being thrown out in the household and I haven’t yet decided on one.”
One thing for certain, however, is that the holiday will be more meaningful with Lincoln, now 7 months, involved — a concept Bell applies to every aspect of her life, including being on set.
“She comes to visit a lot. It’s really fun to be able to bring a baby around because it always makes everyone smile,” she says, adding that finding a work/life balance hasn’t come hard for her. “It’s really just renegotiating your time. I haven’t found it very difficult because I like my baby. She’s my best friend.”
Part of Bell’s decision to put her daughter first also includes keeping her image out of the spotlight — she and Shepard do not share photos of Lincoln.
“Our daughter is not a public figure. We chose to be, we volunteered to be in this business and she did not,” says Bell. “I feel it’s very important and my number one job as a mother to protect what her interests might be. She might grow up to be very shy and she might not want her picture anywhere. This lifestyle might make her very uncomfortable and I think it’s my duty to protect that.”
Unaware of her parents’ celebrity status, Lincoln is simply enjoying her infancy.
“Being a baby is kind of her latest milestone,” says Bell, who’s partnered with Neutrogena Naturals and The Nature Conservancy to encourage water conservation in the month of October as part of the Every Drop Counts campaign. “She still puts everything in her mouth and hangs out like a blob, which I suppose could be adequate descriptions of Dax and I on any given day.”
There is a new featurette from the “Veronica Mars” movie discussing the love triangle of Veronica/Logan/Piz. Check it out below!
Kristen Bell proposed to Dax Shepard on Twitter in June, when the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and ruled that same-sex marriages should be allowed in California. (The actors had already announced their engagement in January 2010.)
And now the two are said to have quietly wed at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office on Thursday. TMZ and Us Weekly are reporting that the couple went to get a marriage license.
The Veronica Mars actress, 32, and Parenthood actor, 38, who are parents to baby daughter Lincoln, are said to have then taken up a court employee’s offer to marry them on the spot in a nearby courtroom. Bell, says TMZ, cried.
Neither star has mentioned the news so far.
But it sounds like it was just the ceremony she wanted. When USA TODAY’s Andrea Mandell asked Bell about a wedding last year, she replied, “I don’t want another day where I get dressed up and wear makeup and celebrate myself. We really don’t want any attention for it.”
UPDATE: Bell just tweeted out the official word, and in darn cute fashion:
“Wife coffee tastes way better than regular coffee in the morning @daxshepard1″
