Yikes! Kristen Bell's daughter just asked her the funniest question about sex
Well, that must have stopped her in her tracks.
We love Kristen Bell and her very tell-it-like-it-is attitude to parenting – normalising things like being overwhelmed, feeling anxious, the work-life-balance struggle and everything else we all know only too well comes as part and parcel of being a mum.
Recently, Bell was chatting to The Late Show host Stephen Colbert, when she could reveal that her eldest daughter, Lincoln, 7, had just stopped Bell and husband, Dax Shepard, in their tracks when she asked a hilarious question about sex – just out of the blue.
The Frozen star told the late show host how she and Shepard were about to head out for a walk, when Lincoln suddenly decided to questions her parents about their intentions for their evening stroll.
"My sister was here watching the kids. We masked up and we were like, 'Oh, we'll just walk down the street. There's a great hike near our house.' And on our way out the door, my 7-year-old stood in the door and she held it open. She goes, 'Uh, are you going to do a sex?" said Bell, 40.
"We’ve talked to her about what sex is, but we’ve never talked about us doing it. Dax just really quickly said, ‘We’d love to, but it’s illegal publicly. Bye!’ and closed the door."
Well, I think we can all agree that they managed to get out of that one just fine, no?
In the same TV appearance, Bell also talked about her other daughter, Delta, and compared her two children to birds, because they sort of never stop chattering.
"‘(It’s) truly like having two crazy parakeets stapled to your shoulder all afternoon, where they’re just talking so much."
Sounds familiar? I know.
As for what Lincoln and little Delta have been getting up to during lockdown, the actress explained:
"They’ve been making forts but they’ve been expanding into moving furniture,’ Bell could reveal. "So I will wake up at 8:30 and none of the furniture that was in the room previously will be in the room."
Pillow forts, constant chatting and awkward questions? Sounds exactly like our lockdown life, tbh.
