$142.00. That isn’t a typo. Kristen Bell, sloth enthusiast and Bad Moms star, married Dax Shepard in 2013 for a grand total of $142.
That number even includes the cost of gas to get to the courthouse.
The couple had put off their wedding way back in 2010 in solidarity with marriage equality for all couples. They tied the knot in a courthouse in a private ceremony in 2013 after marriage equality became legal federally in the US.
In short, they’re perfect.
So why the recent hype?
Because Kristen has finally released the photos. And frankly, sans white dress, sans a billion A-Listers, sans crystal, sans private island, the wedding looks pretty bada**.
When celebrities get married, the first thing that us peasants do is hit the little heart on Instagram, comment on the likelihood of how long it will last, and shake our heads, bemoaning our own lack of millions to spend on matching napkin holders and chair covers.
But look at that smile as they sign their marriage license. See? Celebrities are normal. Sort of.
Now parents to two children, Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 18 months, Kristen has also recently commented on Dax’s role as a father, especially in light of his struggles with drug addiction.
“He’s a wonderful father. He knows the value of things. He was an addict for many, many years and he pulled himself out of it. He’s been sober for 11, 12 years now… and he knows how many times he’s messed up and how many times he’s been really close to losing everything.”
Well if that doesn’t just warm our cold, cynical, peasant hearts. Best of luck on your continued happiness and apparent normalcy in the face of celebrity, ya’ll. Keep the photos coming.
