Kristen Bell says her 9-year-old daughter’s favourite drink is non-alcoholic beer

While most children’s go-to favourite drink is a cola or a milkshake, Kristen Bell has revealed that her nine-year-old daughter has a much different preference.

Kristen revealed that her two children, who she shares with husband Dax Shepard, have developed a fondness for the taste of beer – so they drink non-alcoholic brands.

While the actress seems to know her kids’ taste in drinks is odd for aged eight and nine, confusion hits when her eldest Lincoln tries to order it at restaurants.

The 43-year-old opened up on why her children do this, and what got them started on it in the first place – it was all so her girls could feel closer to their dad.

“My kids have ordered non-alcoholic beers at restaurants before, which sounds insane if you don’t know,” she shared on the Kelly Clarkson show.

She noted that “context is important” and explained why her daughters are so fond of a non-alcoholic beer.

“[Dax]’s a recovering addict, but he likes non-alcoholic beer, so he’d pop one open, he’d have [our oldest daughter] on his chest, and we’d walk and look at the sunset.

“As a baby she was pawing at it, and sometimes she’d suck on the rim of it. So I think it feels to her like something special, something daddy, something family.”

While they may drink more non-alcoholic beer than your average child, she doesn’t allow them to have it all the time when out in public.

“We’ve been at restaurants where she’s said, “Do you have any non-alcoholic beer?” and I’m like . . . maybe we just keep that for home time,” the actress laughed.

“But then I’m also sort of like, you can judge me if you want, I’m not doing anything wrong. Like that’s your problem.”

This isn’t the first time many have been left with questions over the Frozen stars’ parenting style, as last year she revealed she has already given her daughters the sex talk.

Speaking on Rachel Bilson’s podcast, she said that she explained: “Daddy and I do this because we have those feelings towards each other.”

She added: “There are feelings we each get in our private parts for each other. We also get in our brains and in our bellies.”
