This is so sad, but also beautiful!
Kristen Bell couldn't stay away from wonderful hubby Dax Shepard last December, while he was visiting his father in the hospital in Detroit.
And while she was there, she introduced her father-in-law to the soon-to-be newest member of the family. Dax writes:
"At one point, and unbeknownst to both of us, my wife walked into the room. She had flown in from LA without any warning. It was a surprise. 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 was smiling from ear to ear, sitting contently, unable to put together a sentence, but still capable of connecting to the new family member we were creating.
He wasn’t going to make it to the birth, but that didn’t get in the way of him meeting the new baby. It was an emotional and triumphant moment. One I will never forget.
If I live to be a thousand, I will still be in debt to my wife for giving him that one last thrill."
As if we needed one more reason to love Kristen Bell.
Our condolences, Dax. Your father sounded like a pretty fun guy! For the rest of the inspirational story of life's big changes, check out Dax's incredible new blog!
