Kristen Bell Biography
Actress Kristen Anne Bell was born in the United States on July 18, 1980. While attending the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, she began her acting career by playing lead roles in stage productions. She then made her Broadway stage debut as Becky Thatcher in the comedy musical The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and appeared in a Broadway revival of The Crucible the following year.
She went on to star in the 2004 action thriller Spartan and garnered recognition for her work in the television drama Gracie’s Choice. She received critical praise and a Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television for her portrayal of the title character in the teen noir drama television series Veronica Mars (2004–2007). In both the 2014 movie and the 2019 reboot, she returned to the titular character.
Lorelei (née Frygier), her mother, is a certified nurse, and her father, Tom Bell, is a television news director in Las Vegas, Nevada. When she was two years old, her parents divorced. Her mother is Polish, and her father is of German, Scottish, and Irish blood.
The actress’s step-parents are John Raymond Avedian and Kelly Bell.
Bell’s father’s second marriage produced two half-sisters, and her mother’s second marriage produced three half-sisters and a half-brother. Their names are Jody Bell, John Avedian, Laura Avedian, Matt Avedian, Megan Avedian, and Sara Bell.
Lincoln Bell Shepard, the couple’s first child, was born on March 28, 2013, and she has kept her parents quite busy ever since. On December 19, 2014, Dax and Kristen gave birth to a second daughter, Delta Bell Shepard, and since then, they have been an endearing family of four.
Dax Shepard is Kristen’s husband. Dax Randall Shepard, born January 2, 1975, is a comedian, actor, filmmaker, and podcaster from the United States. He has hosted Armchair Expert, a podcast in which he interviews celebrities, journalists, and academics about their lives, since 2018. They’ve been dating since 2007 after meeting at a mutual friend’s party, and they got engaged in January 2010.
They pushed back their wedding until the bill allowing same-sex marriage was approved. On June 26, 2013, Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act was repealed, and Bell proposed marriage to Dax via Twitter, which he enthusiastically accepted. According to the actress, their regular therapy sessions have resulted in a very harmonious marriage.
Kristen Bell isn’t in “the bad place” financially. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the American actress, singer, and film producer has an estimated net worth of $40 million (a combined net worth with her spouse since 2013), but we believe it might be much more. Unsurprisingly, the majority of her riches may be ascribed to the numerous films and television shows in which she has appeared throughout the course of her long career.
Kristen Bell has expanded her career beyond acting to include a variety of entrepreneurial endeavors. She and her husband have developed a plant-based infant care line called Hello Bello in keeping with her vegan lifestyle.
The actress’s car collection include a Tesla Model X priced at $120,000, a Chevrolet Volt worth $33,995, a BMW 6 Series valued at $70,300, a Toyota Sequoia worth $50,500, and an Audi Q5 that costs $44,100.
Together with her husband Dax Shepard, the adored Hollywood icon owns a sizable mansion in the Los Feliz district. According to the L.A. Times, the Veronica Mars actress paid $4.3 million for the 4,050-square-foot home in August 2017. The residence has multiple living spaces, a dining room, a library, and four bedrooms and four and a half baths.
The 1922-built mansion of Kristen and Dax also features a breakfast area, a separate garage with an attic office where the hottie records his “Armchair Expert” podcast, a den, and a roomy backyard for children Lincoln and Delta.
There’s a total of zero tattoos on Kristen.
