Bell and Shepard first met at a dinner party in 2007 and did not immediately hit it off with each other, although they grew closer over time.
Prior to becoming romantically involved with the Idiocracy actor, the actress was previously engaged to Kevin Mann, although they eventually broke things off.
The now-married couple went on to begin a relationship, although things between them were unstable at first, and they separated for a few months before reconciling during the early years of their time together.
In 2009, the two costarred in the romantic comedy film When In Rome, and they went on to announce their engagement the following year.

The pair waited until 2013, when same-sex marriage was legalized in California, to tie the knot, and they welcomed Lincoln the same year.
Bell and Shepard added Delta to their family in 2014, and they have been sporadically seen in each other’s projects ever since then.
The actress spoke about her relationship with her children during an interview with Self, where she expressed that she takes special care to remind them about the privilege they were raised with.

The performer also spoke about her marriage to Shepard during the sit-down and expressed that they are constantly working to improve their relationship.
Specifically, Bell expressed that ‘relationships aren’t a puzzle. You cannot pick them up and put them down.’
