AceShowbiz - Dax Shepard is celebrating after getting sober for 12 years. To mark the occasion, the 41-year-old actor gave a shout-out to his wife of three years, Kristen Bell, and their daughters, 3-year-old Lincoln and 1-year-old Delta.
"12 years ago today I came out of my last toxic, life threatening stupor," the father of two told his Twitter followers on the anniversary of his sobriety. "I now have a wife & babies & some self-esteem #gratitude #promises."
Dax Shepard has always been open about his dark past and Kristen Bell is very supportive of her husband. "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 recently said. "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."
Kristen herself is dealing with her own struggle with depression. "It's important for me to be candid about this so people in a similar situation can realize that they are not worthless and that they do have something to offer," she said.
