After Dax Shepard shared this *really* private story, Kristen Bell totally played it cool

Back in May, Dax Shepard revealed something quite personal about his life with Kristen Bell. Specifically, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Dax opened up about the fact that he won’t be having any more children with Kristen – since he’d made the decision to get a vasectomy (without discussing it with his wife beforehand).

Last year, when my wife was working in Atlanta, we were there and she all of a sudden goes, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m so stupid. I’ve been sick for 10 days and ignoring it. I’m definitely pregnant,‘” said Dax. “And I was like, ‘We’re going to turn into Jon & Kate Plus 8 or something,’ and we already have no life. I freaked out. It was so bad. That was Tuesday … Thursday morning I had a vasectomy.”

Though Dax may not have checked in with Kristen before getting a vasectomy, he fortunately did get her a-okay before telling this story on national television. We know this because Bell herself told – you guessed it – Jimmy Kimmel:

“He’s very respectful in that regard,” Kristen revealed. “We’re people like that like embarrassment. I think it makes everything a little lighter and brighter when you can be cool about your embarrassing stories.”

In fact, the actress added that there are very few stories Kristen would ask Dax not to tell the general public. Though none of these off-limits stories came to mind while she was on the talk show, Kristen did mention that her family is very open about, well… everything.

Someone in the household is always nude,” Kristen revealed, “Or the kids are always nude, or [Dax is] running from room to room as he’s changing … It doesn’t really matter.” When Jimmy asked if Dax runs around the house while nude, Kristen adorably winked and quipped, “If I’m lucky!

It’s official: Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are our relationship role models.
