The actress and writer have lately made headlines for her burgeoning affair with comic Chris Rock. At this time, the two had been dating for nearly a month. Her appearance in the headlines prompts many concerns about her love life, particularly her relationship with her ex-husband and children prior to Rock. Bell’s marriage lasted almost seven years. Bell learned a lot about marriage and relationships via ruminations between being married and getting divorced.
Lake Bell’s Relationship with Her Ex-Husband and Children
Bell met her husband, tattoo artist Scott Campbell, in 2011 while working on the set of How to Make It in America. She was getting ready for a part of the program and was going to be tattooed in the process. Campbell, who appeared on the episode, was the one who tattooed her around 6 a.m. He went in and grabbed her attention right away.
They struck it off right away and got engaged on her birthday, March 24, 2012. They married on June 1, 2013, at The Marigny Opera House in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was their first marriage, and they took their time establishing a family. They had their first child, Nova, in October 2014. Their second child, boy Ozgood (tzi for short and not called after Ozzy Osbourne), was born in May 2017.
For a period, the actress’s life was made more difficult by the fact that her daughter suffers from epilepsy. She got through it, however, thanks to Campbell’s unwavering support. “My spouse is a great parent,” she told Baby Center (via E! Online) a few months before their split.
Campbell, too, was determined to be the greatest husband and father he could be so that his family would not suffer. “I want to be the greatest husband and father I can be for her so she doesn’t grow up dating jerks. I never make her feel inferior “In 2019, he told Fatherly magazine
They kept it together… until they couldn’t anymore. They announced their split on their individual Instagram profiles on October 22, 2020. They expressed similar emotions in their announcements, promising to be the greatest parents they could be and to always prioritize their children. They also intended to be best friends after their divorce.
How Lake Bell’s Marriage Perspective Has Changed
Bell admitted to the Independent in June 2018 that she grew up “surrounded by divorce my whole life.” As a result, she developed a “cynical” perspective on marriage and considered it an antiquated institution. “‘Until death do us part?’ Are you kidding me?” she wondered. That everything changed when she met Campbell.
So, during the course of their relationship, she investigated the complexities of marriages, including her own. And in 2017, she put what she’d learned over the years into a script called I Do… Until I Don’t. I Do… Until I Don’t, a highly praised film depicts her growth through the years. She was curious about how relationships will evolve throughout time, not only on the couple’s wedding day.
