Kristen Bell says her husband Dax Shepard is “doing really great” following his recent relapse after 16 years of sobriety.


Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are celebrating a milestone — a forgotten anniversary.

The “Frozen” star took to Instagram Monday and shared a cute selfie of her and her husband to commemorate their seventh wedding anniversary, albeit a few days late. 

“Well, it’s that time of year again. The anniversary of the day each year when we say to each other ‘wasn’t our anniversary last week at some point?’ ” Bell, captioned the post. “I love you, @daxshepard, and I always will.”

The couple, who got married in 2013, are notorious for forgetting details about their marriage. 

Last year, Bell confessed in an Instagram tribute to her husband that neither of them can remember their anniversary date, which they think happened “at some point last week.”

“We were reminded by family and friends that at some point last week, it was our 5 year wedding anniversary,” she wrote, captioning a photo of Shepard with his arm around her. “In truth, neither of us remember which day. Thats because we have been living the celebration of our commitment every moment since.”

Bell’s anniversary post comes almost a month after Shepard revealed he was recovering from a relapse after 16 years of sobriety. 

Shepard shared on the Sept. 25 episode of his “Armchair Expert” podcast in a no-holds-barred conversation that he had recently relapsed and wanted to be honest about his journey in order to help others who may be struggling with addiction.

In the episode, which was recorded Sept. 21, Shepard, who previously struggled with alcohol addiction and other drugs, explained he had previously taken prescription pain pills due to injuries from riding his motorcycle. But “for the last eight weeks maybe” he’d been “on them all day.”

Last week Bell said her husband was “doing really great.”

“Everybody’s up against their own demon,” Bell said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “Sometimes it’s anxiety and depression, sometimes it’s substance abuse. The thing I love most about Dax is… that he was able to tell me and tell us and say ‘we need a different plan.’ “
