posted by @ColtRadio - 

Kristen Bell is so happy for her husband Dax Shepard.

In an amusing and tear-inducing Instagram post written Saturday (September 1), the Frozen star did the honors of congratulating Shepard on his 14th sober anniversary.

“To the man mocked me when in our wedding photos because I cried too many tears of joy, who wore a baby Bjorn for 2 straight years to show his girls how to be as adventurous as possible, who held our dear little shakey man pup for 8 hrs straight on the day we had to put him down, I know how much you loved using," Bell writes of her hubby's milestone. "I know how much it got in your way. And I know, because I saw, how hard you worked to live without it."

To the man mocked me in our wedding photos because I cried too many tears of joy, Who wore a baby Bjorn for 2 straight years to show his girls how to be as adventurous as possible, Who held our dear little shakey mann pup for 8 hrs straight on the day we had to put him down, I know how much you loved using. I know how much it got in your way. And I know, because I saw, how hard you worked to live without it. I will forever be in awe of your dedication, and the level of fierce moral inventory you perform on yourself, like an emotional surgery, every single night. You never fail to make amends, or say sorry when its needed. You are always available to guide me, and all of our friends, with open ears and tough love when its needed most. You have become the fertilizer in the garden of our life, encouraging everyone to grow. I'm so proud that you have never been ashamed of your story, but instead shared it widely, with the hope it might inspire someone else to become the best version of themselves. You have certainly inspired me to do so. I love you more than I ever thought I could love anyone, and I want you to know, I see you. I see how hard you work. You set an excellent example of being human. Happy 14th year sobriety birthday, @daxshepard. Xoxo

She continued: "I'm so proud that you have never been ashamed of your story, but instead shared it widely, with the hope it might inspire someone else to become the best version of themselves. … Happy 14th year sobriety birthday."

The Veronica Mars alum, who shares two daughters with the 43-year-old actor, also surprised her hubby with an all-you-can-eat visit to a King's Hawaiin factory, where the comedian happily ate his weight in sweet bread.

In July 2016, Bell became overwhelmed with emotion discussing Shepard's past with addiction on an episode of CBS's Sunday Morning.

“He’s a wonderful father. 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 reflected. "And he knows how many times he’s messed up and how many times he’s been really close to losing everything.”

Best sober birthday present ever. @kristenanniebell got me a tour of the @kingshawaiian factory and I ate 8 STRAIGHT oughta the oven. 2 more upstairs, and 3 at home. 13 all-in for one day is an accomplishment I will not soon forget. Also, the fact that Kristen looks like a scientist and @mlpadman looks like she's on a kindergarten field trip just makes my heart swell to dangerous levels. Thanks Ladies!
