Kristen Bell is opening up about her relationship with Dax Shepard as they navigate it after his relapse and during the pandemic.
Speaking with People, the 40-year-old actress revealed that she and Dax did seek out couples counseling to reconnect with one another.
“We’ve learned everything about each other because we haven’t been able to leave!” she shared with the magazine. “The main thing I’ve learned is something I learned from Glennon Doyle, which is that we just need to give each other grace under circumstances.”
Kristen adds that during the turbulent year, she and Dax were feeling the effects of being so close to each other all the time.
“Everyone’s proclivities are kind of bubbling over because we’re all caged in with each other,” she says. “Dax and I, when we started this pandemic, were at a point in our marriage where we definitely needed a little therapy brush-up.”
“Every couple of years, we’re like, ‘We’re being very antagonistic towards each other,’ and we don’t want that,” Kristen continued. “We go back to therapy and figure out what I’m not doing that’s best for you and what you’re not doing that’s best for me, and how we can serve this team goal better. It’s been incredibly helpful.”
Last year, Dax admitted that he relapsed on his sobriety and opened up about how he was making it up to Kristen, and their children, Delta and Lincoln.
Kristen has promised to stand beside him as he continues his battle.
