When it comes to celebrity duos, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are about as real as it gets. Their Instagram is full of relatable couple moments as they have no problem getting honest about their parenting choices in interviews. And now, they've revealed another fact that has many folks with small children saying "same."

Apparently, Kristen and Dax don't do date night.

  • In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Kristen and Dax revealed they rarely go on traditional dates anymore.

    Date nights may be the "secret" to a great relationship for some celebrity couples, but apparently that's not the case with these two.

    "We've probably had nine [date nights] in the last six years, if we're being honest," the Hollywood couple told Parade about skipping date night.

    "So when they print these things -- that we're swingers and stuff -- it gives us a little edge that we don’t have," Dax jokes.

    Kristen and Dax are proud parents to two girls: Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 4.

  • Still, that doesn't mean that they don't spend some quality time together.

    Instead, the couple simply prefers to hang out with friends and at home as a family, which is something fans have probably seen on Instagram. "We play board games and the kids destroy the house and that’s just a fun Sunday," Dax Shepard adds.

    They also enjoy finding new shows to binge together, which sounds like the perfect night in to us.

  • Unsurprisingly, other parents weren't shocked to hear this news.

    Looking at the reaction, a few people said they tried to do date nights at least once a week or every month. Others weighed in on how long it's been since they went out with just their significant other.

    Between work, activities, finding a babysitter, and just being tired in general, it's not easy! Plus, some might prefer to hang out with the fam instead.

  • Once again, Kristen and Dax get gold stars for keeping it real.

    People seem to love the fact that the couple puts their kids above all else and that they don't seem to spend the night partying it up.

    Although, life is about balance. If Dax and Kristen did want to party it up on occasion, that would be great, too.

  • Plus, let's remember that attending events is part of their job.

    Kristen and Dax may not go out to a fancy dinner or head to the movie theater too often, but they do get dressed up from time to time for an award show or movie premiere.

    Perhaps when they finally get a moment to relax and be by themselves, they want to do exactly that!

  • Either way, we continue to love this pair.


    It's also worth mentioning that the Hollywood duo spoke about all the effort they put into their relationship to make it work, which they've mentioned in the past by talking about couples therapy.

    "This isn’t a special fairy[ ]tale," Kristen told the magazine, before Dax added that they are "two people who worked really hard[,] and it's attainable for you if you work really hard in your marriage too."

    We love it.

    Keep it up, guys!
