The couple gets real about their marital strife
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are usually all smiles and laughs, but the two have found the days of self isolation to be challenging to say the least!
In an Instagram live interview, the couple got real about the challenges they've faced as a couple during self isolation.
Sharing their two daughters Delta, 5, and Lincoln, 7, the couple revealed that while the relationship with their kids is fine, the relationship as a couple has been harder.
“We’re getting along good with the kids and we’re getting along good with adults we’re friends with. This has been stressful for momma and dada,” Shepard admitted.
“We’ve been at each other’s throats real bad, real bad,” Bell agreed. She then went on to joke, saying that sitting together for this interview was “as physically close as we’ve been in a couple of days ’cause we’ve just found each other revolting.”
“America’s sweetheart has some character defects,” Shepard added.
Shepard then went on to step out of the frame for the remainder of the interview.
When interviewer Katie Couric suggested they get some alone time during this pandemic, Bell responded, "He’s too big, Katie. He’s too loud and too big. He’s everywhere."
Bell then went on to discuss her work with other celebs, such as Ellen DeGeneres, John Cena, Noah Centineo, and David Dobrik on their #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall special.
The special was put together to give kids the opportunity to express their concerns and thoughts over the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Kids are worried about missing their summer camps, they’re missing their birthdays. My daughter’s birthday was on Friday. It was a bummer,” she said.
“We did a big Zoom class party and had all the parents on FaceTime, but it wasn’t really the same," she continued.
“It’s not the world’s worst thing that can happen, but those kids do deserve an opportunity to say, ‘I’m bummed!'” Bell added.
As for her own children, Bell talked about the fact that despite her children not asking a ton of questions, they are concerned and thinking about it.
“As a parent you can see when their eyes are asking questions and their mouths don’t know how to say it. So we’ve been very open about telling them what the disease is,” Bell said.
"We’ve tried to give them an opportunity to ask questions, but it hasn’t really happened. It’s kind of strange," she continued.
Her special was hosted on Monday for Nickelodeon.
