In a Tumblr post in late March, Shepard shares Bell's incredibly touching act for her father-in-law to-be, who passed away in December after battling small-cell carcinoma in a Detroit-area hospital. "She had flown in from LA without any warning … She lifted her shirt up and he put his hand on her swollen stomach. He was smiling from ear to ear, sitting contently, unable to put together a sentence, but still capable of connecting to the new family member we were creating … If I live to be a thousand, I will still be in debt to my wife for giving him that one last thrill."
