Ode To Parenthood
December 11, 2013
Dax Shepard opened up about his late father Dave Robert Shepard Sr. on his blog, and it's sure to have you grabbing for the tissues. Recalling a moment when his pregnant wife-to-be Kristen Bell showed up to see his dad before he passed away, the Parenthood star writes: "At one point, and unbeknownst to both of us, my wife walked into the room. ...It was an amazing, incredible, perfectly timed surprise. She lifted her shirt up and he put his hand on her swollen stomach. He left it there for the better part of an hour. ...He wasn't going to make it to the birth, but that didn't get in the way of him meeting the new baby. ...If I live to be a thousand, I will still be in debt to my wife for giving him that one last thrill."
