Kristen Bell: We run our lives by a family calendar
Kristen Bell says she and husband Dax Shepard are “very mathematical” about organising things when it comes to their marriage.
The couple are parents to two daughters – Lincoln, who turns two at the end of this month, and two-month-old Delta. And while their lives are certainly busy with their family commitments, Kristen insists she and Dax also make it a priority to focus on their relationship.
“We have a family calendar and it’s how everybody runs,” Kristen told Us Weekly. “In truth, there’s no trick to balancing it. If you look at the calendar and you’ve seen you’ve gone ten days without a date night, you know you need to prioritise more. That’s how we work – we’re very mathematical about our relationship!”
Kristen is also being kept busy in her work life, currently shooting a new movie alongside Melissa McCarthy. But no matter how busy she gets, the 34-year-old will still ensure she gets a date night with her spouse as frequently as possible.
“I feel like it’s necessary to stay connected, because you can easily get blinded by all of the multitasking you have to do and then forget that it’s been a month since you’ve spent an evening with your partner, and I don’t ever want to let it get to that,” she said.
Dax, 40, is certainly outnumbered at the moment, with three girls in the house. But Kristen says he has a plan in place if the girl power all gets a bit too much to handle.
“He has a game plan,” Kristen said. “He and Ryan Hansen – who is one of our best friends and has three girls – they’ve decided that once our schedules sync up… they’re going to get a bachelor pad downtown and just leave for five to seven days. That’s their game plan.”
