Dax Shepard Recovering After Having the Hiccups for 50 Hours Straight: 'What a Ride!' Bell's caption also referenced a 50-hour hiccup stint that Shepard previously explained in a December Instagram post. "What a ride!!! 50 hours of hiccups," he captioned two videos of the recurring hiccups. "Worry not. We have been hiccup free for five days today. For anyone who has permanent hiccups, god bless.

Dax Shepard Says Previous Open Relationship Led to Jealousy When He Started Dating Kristen Bell Shepard and Bell married in 2013, and have two children together: daughters Delta, 7, and Lincoln, 8. While they often share moments of joy and love publicly, Shepard previously revealed his relationship with Bell started with a good amount of jealousy. "My wife's incredibly confident, as she should be," he said during a conversation with both Bell and Drew Barrymore on The Drew Barrymore Show in November. "There was a ton of jealousy at the beginning of the relationship, for pretty good reasons." Shepard continued, "I had been in an open relationship for nine years, I was blacked out a big chunk of my life. You know, there were a lot of things for her to be concerned about." Bell opened up about her own concerns following Shepard's previous battle with addiction. "So, in the beginning it was nerve-wracking dating Dax knowing his history of recovery and he's just this big force, but I was like, no, he's got it inside of him," she said. "He's got all this goodness. And I have been proven right! Because no one is as affectionate — I'm not even as affectionate with our girls as he is. And hopefully, they'll grow up healthier and happier and safer."
