Hold the phone! Dax Shepard wasn’t ready to settle down when he first started dating now wife Kristen Bell

The actress revealed to Popsugar that Shepard actually dumped her days before they got serious. 

#tbt to when I cried at our wedding and @daxshepard thought it was really funny.

“We were dating for about three months, and I already knew that I was in love with him and he was hesitant because he knew he was still dating other people,” Bell recalled. “He sat me down and said, ‘I can’t have this right now. I think you’re wonderful, but I am still dating other people.’ And then I, like, liquefied and fell to the ground, but I felt incredibly respected that he had the balls to tell me we weren’t in the same place.”

Shepard — thankfully — realized his mistake, Bell continued, and called her four days later.

“He called me and he was like, ‘I don’t know what I was thinking. I was dating someone else but they’re just not as interesting as you, and I don’t know what I’m doing,’ and he came back,” she said. “But I still always remind him of when he broke up with me.”

As she should!
