On Thursday, Shepard gave a shoutout to his wife and two young daughters, Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 1, expressing how grateful he feels to have his family after drugs and alcohol sent him down a destructive path earlier in his career.
“Twelve years ago today I came out of my last toxic, life threatening stupor. I now have a wife & babies & some self-esteem #gratitude #promises,” he wrote.
A day later, Bell reacted to Shepard’s message on Twitter, doubling down on the adorableness factor and confirming what we’ve known all along: there’s no better couple in Hollywood than these two.
“Can you [believe] this guy?” she tweeted. “He’s a PRINCE. I’m so lucky to have met him. Bravo, my love. Thank u for working so hard.”
Bell, who started dating Shepard four years after he got clean, has spoken publicly about how her husband’s past addiction has shaped her worldview.
“I have a particular affinity towards helping people who feel outcast, whether they’ve made mistakes, like having past felony convictions or recovering addicts,” she told E! News in June.
“Seeing the world through his eyes has really opened mine to knowing that it is a disease and nobody is choosing to drink more than others,” she added. “They are doing it because of a variety of reasons and they deserve the attention of a mental health professional, and not the county jail or however else we’re choosing to pretend we’re fixing the problem.”
And for the umpteenth time, #CoupleGoals.
