Big Surprise: Kristen Bell is Still the Best

Sorry if you were interested in keeping your heart in one piece today, because Kristen Bell just did an adorable new interview, and it's going to explode that thing into a billion pieces. Don't you want to hear her talk more about her little baby, and about her husband, and about her dogs? Of course you do, because you have a soul and such things are pleasing to it.
Let's check it out!
On her husband, Dax Shepard, and how they both grew up in Detroit:
“We would not have been friends in high school. He was a drug addict and he was wild, and I was very much a good girl who went to Catholic school. He is also five years older than I am, and he lived in Milford, which is a bit more drive-your-tractor-to-the-7-eleven-type Michigan, and I was closer to downtown Detroit.” The pair’s first encounter, at a dinner party, was “not electric,” she says. “And then two weeks later, I went to a Kings versus Red Wings game—he was with someone I knew, and I was with my roommate, [Veronica Mars co-star] Ryan Hansen—and we ran into each other. It was on from that point.”
On her pregnancy:
“I kept saying to him in all sincerity during my pregnancy, ‘I just don’t know how I’m going to like her as much as I like the dogs.’ I was being serious. Because I f---ing love my dogs; they are my children. I love people the more I know them, and I didn’t know her. It could’ve been a water bottle in my belly, that’s about how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy. But within about 24 hours after she came out, my hormones reset, and they reprogrammed my feelings about her.”
“Dax and I realize it might make someone smile when we have sassy Twitter fights, or when I tweet something that he says to me. I’m fully aware that it’s a tiny taste of our relationship. But the real day-to-day, we are extremely territorial of. I would really not like to see the aftermath of the first person who tries to take a picture of Lincoln. There are going to be a lot of stitches.”
On her incredibly adorable marriage:
“Can I tell you the text message I just got? He said, ‘Do you want noodles?’ And I said, ‘Yes. Pho, please.’ ‘Should I order now? I love you so much.’ And I wrote, ‘Order in 20 minutes. I’ll be home at 5:45.’ He responds with, ‘Titty party. Bone patrol launching boner boats now.’ What? I am married to an 11-year-old!”
Does Kristen Bell have any flaws at all? Being too wonderful doesn't count.
