‘When in Rome’ star Kristen Bell and Comedian Dax Shepard are engaged! Kristen’s rep confirmed with US Magazine that Dax had proposed, and lucky for him, she said yes.
Shepard, age 35, popped the question to Kristen, age 29, over the holiday. The couple has been dating since January 2008 and recently starred in the movie “When in Rome” together. Continue reading to find out all the details, complete with photos and video!
Whenever I hear about an engagement in Hollywood, I can’t help but think: will this be another divorce statistic? Cynical? Maybe. But you have to admit, there’s some truth to the thought as well. In an interview with Women’s Magazine last November, Bell said:
“I’ve learned the necessity for healthy communication,” “Your partner should hear your most embarrassing insecurities, because once you say them out loud, you’ve created a safe zone.”
It’s tough to judge a couple from the outside, from the media’s point of view. But with statements like that, it gives me the impression Kristen and Dax have a healthy relationship (rare as that can be in Hollywood).
Kristen also said in another interview:
“I think your significant other should be way more important than your work, personally. I love working. I don’t know that I’d say I’m a workaholic because I also love maxin’ and relaxin”
Good thing too, because it seems that while her relationship with Dax is blossoming, her most recent movie is getting panned.
Nonetheless, I think that’s the last thing on the happy couple’s mind right now. I’ve been a huge fan of Dax since his excellent work in “Idiocracy” and I’ve loved Kristen since “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”. They seem good for one another so all the best to them in their new life together!
