Kristen Bell opened up about family life with her husband, Dax Shepard, and the couple's courthouse wedding in an emotional interview with "CBS Sunday Morning."

"He's a wonderful father," the 36-year-old actress said of her husband.

Bell teared up when addressing Shepard's struggles with addiction. "He knows the value of things. He was an addict for many, many years and he pulled himself out of it, and he's been sober for 11, 12 years now," she said. "And he knows how many times he's messed up and how many times he's been really close to losing everything."

The "Bad Moms" actress married Shepard, 41, in 2013 and -- unlike many celebrity weddings -- it was a simple and private affair.

"We got married in a tiny room in the Beverly Hills courthouse, and it was still one of the best days of my life," she said.

In their wedding photos, which Bell shared for the first time during the interview, she wore a simple black outfit with decorative collar, while Shepard sported a tux.
