Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard may have had their ups and downs, but the two are in it for life. After five years together, The Good Place star is making it clear that she's still so in love with her man. Bell opened up to People in its latest issue about her relationship with Shephard and how far the two have come over the past five years.

“When we first got together I had a lot of trust and jealousy issues,” Bell, 38, admits. “Over the years I have realized what a waste of time these emotions are because he has shown nothing but consistent love, and conducts himself in my absence exactly how he does in my presence. I also think he has gotten funnier over the years!"

She added, “At first I was attracted to the way he made me feel, and now I’m attracted to the things I learn from him.”

The couple tied the knot in 2013 in an famously secretive wedding ceremony. They share two daughters together: Lincoln, 5, and Delta, who turns 4 next month. Out of all of the reasons Bell is in love with her husband, she said that watching him assist with their children is one of the sexiest things he does.

“[I’m] decidedly confident I chose the right person,” she says. “He does almost everything in a “manly” way. He can put a pony tail on our 5-year-old’s hair as manly as he can change his break pads in the driveway."

The actress added that even though there's plenty to love about the Parenthood star, there's still "nothing is sexier than him being a good human."
