Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard say they “wait for the stink” to bathe their kids

The actress admitted: “Sometimes five, six days goes along.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis caused quite the debate when they recently admitted they don’t wash their children every day. The family’s bathing habits aren’t as odd as everyone believes because another Hollywood couple just made a similar confession.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have admitted they only tend to wash their children when they start to smell.

The couple opened up on The View.

“We bathed our children every single night—prior to bed is like the routine. And then somehow, they just started going to sleep on their own without the routine, and by George, we had to start saying, ‘Hey, when’s the last time you bathed them?'” Shepard said.

The Good Place actress added, “Yeah, we forget.”

“Sometimes five, six days goes along. I mean, they don’t smell.”

Bell admitted: “Well, they do sometimes. I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink. Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up.”

The mum-of-two added: “There’s a red flag. Because honestly, it’s just bacteria. And once you get the bacteria, you gotta be like, ‘Get in the tub or the shower.’ So I don’t hate what they’re doing. I wait for the stink.”

The couple is parents to 8-year-old Lincoln and 6-year-old Delta.

Bell recently opened up about her daughter’s name and how it has become quite awkward since the outbreak of the Delta variant.

“It’s a big, big bummer, but I’m really hoping that the Delta variant won’t be as strong as the original COVID, and people will still say corona,” the actress said.
