Dax Shepard: A stranger told me that Kristen said our kids walked in on us having sex

The more I hear from Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, the more I think they’re perfect for each other. Take the story that Kristen told on The Talk earlier this week, unbeknownst to Dax, that their 3 and 4 year-old daughters had walked in on them having sex. Kristen didn’t give Dax a heads up on that and he had to find out when a stranger blurted it out to him at a restaurant. Instead of getting upset at Kristen (which he still might have done, I have no idea) he turned it into his own story and elaborated on it while on Jimmy Kimmel. That’s what these two do, they tell funny stories about their family life and their kids on talk shows but it’s ok because we don’t know what their kids look like. Here’s what Dax told Kimmel:

Dax on Kristen promoting Bad Moms Christmas
She’s very active and she does a ton of interviews. Eventually you run out of stuff to talk about, as you’re seeing now. I was at a restaurant last night this is the honest truth. This stranger come up to me and he goes ‘Hey, I just read your kids walked in on you having sex.’

I was like ‘What are you talking about?’

‘I just saw a headline it said your kids walked in on you having sex.’

I don’t even know that she told that story. I don’t know what version she told of it.

Kimmel: Oh so it did happen
Ish. I go ok. They didn’t walk in while I was like pounding mom. We put on the TV in the living room, we’re bad parents. We stole away for minute. Afternoon delight. We’re just under the sheets. They walked in. It’s more like explaining why we’re taking a nap in the afternoon while they were on the loose. It wasn’t in full coitus interruptus. Suffice to say I couldn’t have gotten out of bed at that point.

Ok that was funny and Dax can tell a good story. I don’t know, do you think it will be more or less embarrassing for their daughters when they read that not only did their mom let it slip that they walked in on their parents, but that their dad confirmed it? Dax’s story makes it sound much more innocent though, like they could have been taking a naked nap. Either way if these kids are typical teenagers or tweens when they see this (and that’s the age they’ll be) they’ll be mortified. They’ll probably have more recent things to get embarrassed about at that point though, considering who their parents are.

Here’s Dax’s interview:

    Ugh. Enough you two. And don’t speak another word about wanting privacy for your kids.

    • JEM says:

      Yes! It’s too much! Stop talking!

    • Jess says:

      Telling a story that involves their kids is not the same as parading them around on pap strolls every few days or allowing them to be on magazine covers. They don’t talk about their children often, so I don’t think it’s a big deal.

      • Lua says:

        Cosign. They aren’t parading around their kids in ridiculous heels and fur coats *ahem*Kim*ahem* and I’m preeeeetty sure by the time they’re tweens they’ll know how they were conceived. People have sex in relationships. Why is that taboo? I would not be embarrassed of this story. I would probably embarrass my parents with all of the jokes I would tell at family dinners, though 😂

      • KC says:

        I’m with you @Jess and @Lua. I think as celebrities, they want to be real and relatable. That’s what their schtick is, they’re kind of comedian actors and like relating to fans. If you were with your peers you may have told this somewhat amusing story. It happens (although I never walked in on my parents and was aware of it) and it’s probably something innocent the kids would never remember. I actually commend them for finding a way to relate their family lives while also protecting their kids’ images/identities. I wish more people on social media would limit themselves to storytelling rather than making images of their kids easily available for the world to see and manipulate.

    I feel like they’re that couple that thinks they’re cute, but…NO.

  3. DiligentDiva says:

    Why did either think this story had to be told?

  4. Natalie S says:

    Don’t they have anything to talk about besides themselves? They’re not that interesting.

  5. Felicia says:

    Lol. I guess he was on top then?

  6. minx says:

    Oh, these two.

  7. mariofindley says:

    I have nooooo Idea, why this story annoyed me,,, I mean I adore Kristen but like.. no

  8. Mogul says:

    They will so get a divorce, heck maybe they are already separated.

  9. Louisa says:

    I cannot bear them. They are so in love with their own “cuteness.” Grossness

  10. Babs says:

    I flat out hate them. I swear if they were related to me I would burst into flames every time they open their mouth. Good luck to their daughters and future SO’s.

  11. Jordan says:

    can’t watch Frozen with my daughter without wishing Ana would have stayed frozen. Bell and Dax are just too much for me. He thinks he’s A list, she’s just obnoxious.

  12. Renee says:

    They are exhausting.

  13. Olive says:

    Why is he wearing those dirty, raggedy-ass Converse on a red carpet??

  14. Dana_Pointer says:

    Has anyone else noticed that in recent interviews he’s talked about how much more famous and how much more money his wife makes than he does? If their whole brand wasn’t tied up in being the cutesy married couple, they’d be heading for divorce.

  15. Pandy says:

    Oh god, please SHUT UP. Thank you.

  16. Pandy says:

    Having said SHUT UP, I do have to wonder if this is therapist-mandated coitus?

  17. Harryg says:

    Go away.

  18. SM says:

    They are exhausting. Could some stranger do public good and tell any of them to shut the f* up about themselves and their sex and their marriage and look at us how cute we are…
