The pair, who first got together in 2007 and tied the knot in October 2013, now share daughters Lincoln Shepard, 3, and Delta Bell Shepard, 2, and are constantly defining #RelationshipGoals by gushing about their love for each other and engaging in PDA on the red carpet.
The 42-year-old actor took to Instagram on Sunday to give a shout-out to his love with a throwback photo of the pair, which he captioned, “9 years ago.”
In the shot, a smiling Bell sports early aughts-era overalls and a gray elbow-length T-shirt as she sits on Shepard’s lap.
The dad-of-two, who was dressed in jeans and a black tee, had a slightly more serious expression, which he explained further in the caption.
“And unfortunately that bottom lip isn’t from injections, it’s Skoal,” he continued. “That’s right, I landed @kristenanniebell while in the throes of a nasty dip habit.”
Shepard sweetly concluded, “Thanks for being an optimist, honey.”
After a 2016 filled with its share of celebrity divorces and break-ups, it’s good to see this adorable couple still going so strong after nearly a decade together!
