Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard describe how their 5 yo asked where babies come from

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard were on Ellen to promote their new affordable and eco-friendly baby product line called Hello Bello, now at Walmart. The promotional photos feature them posing with other people’s babies. I have mentioned multiple times here and on our podcast how I appreciate their hustle. This couple knows exactly how much to reveal to get headlines and then they step away. So on Ellen they described how their five-year-old daughter, Lincoln, asked about the birds and bees. They told her about the different male and female parts and when it came to describing the process she just left. They say she got bored but it sounds more like she got uncomfortable.

You decided to talk to [your five year-old Lincoln] about the birds and the bees
She asked. She said ‘where do babies coming from?’ We went through the anatomy. We’re laying it all out. We get right to the action. She’s like ‘I gotta go outside.’ She bailed. We bored her to death.

Remember when they talked about their girls walking in on them when they were getting busy? Actually Kristen talked about that and then Dax said on another talk show that a random person outside a restaurant told him about it. These two are pros who know how to work the the media and I guess I don’t blame them for starting a baby product line. It’s probably more affordable than Jessica Alba’s line.

Here’s that video. There’s another part of their interview here where they talk about eating spicy chocolate that made them feel terrible (it was for a challenge to support prostate cancer) and how Dax and Bradley Cooper have a bromance now or something.

    Are they contractually obligated to appear out together all the time? Don’t they have their own careers? Genuinely asking cuz I don’t follow them, but every time their names pop up they’re ALWAYS out doing something jointly/talking about the marriage.

    • Muffy says:

      She stars in The Good Place, which is hilarious and everyone should watch it.

      • bananapanda says:

        And Dax has a podcast called Armchair Expert which is surprisingly interesting. He’s a lot more intellectually curious and open about seeking life’s answers — part rehab part talking with friends about challenges of relationships, parenting, careers, etc.

  2. AnnaKist says:

    Is this their career now – spilling their guts about all and sundry regarding their personal lives and every little thing their children do and say? They are so tiresome.

    • Sash says:

      The frustrating thing is Kristen Bell is a talented actress. She doesn’t need to do this!

      • Bebe says:

        I actually can’t stand her acting on The Good Place. Everyone else is stellar. I always think, “Elisha Cuthbert would have been so much better as Eleanor”. Haha. But I’ve liked her in other projects, before I knew how ” attention-grabbing” she could come off in real-life.

    Gawd, their oversharing is just too much.

  4. Alarmjaguar says:

    Eh, I told my kids pretty much around that age. They asked and I figured it was better that they knew the truth.

    • AnnaKist says:

      As you should have, but you didn’t tell the world about it, or name your children. These two need to learn to zip it.

  5. CharliePenn says:

    She needs to STOP. Enough. You’re not the first person to raise kids and the only thing special about you is that you afford your kids zero privacy as they go through every normal step of childhood like every other kid out there.
    Good lord.

    • Sash says:

      What really bugs me about her and her husband is 1. How SMUG they are about it and 2. How hypocritical they are. They went on the “pedorazzi” (never mind how offensive that was) then talk about every minute, embarrassing detail about their children, including their anal worms, when their children are too young to consent. I mean, come on!

  6. Lenn says:

    She also needs to stop with the fillers/botox.

    • Cay says:

      Thank you. I think her face looks SO different, but no one else has mentioned it. I also think he has had some work done, fillers or something. But her whole face structure is different.

  7. Harryg says:

    I find him creepy and predatory, like a large cold-blooded lizard. Ellen DeGeneres makes me feel like this too. Like they look at you, and despise you.

  8. Ash says:

    People on this site are always harsh about them. I love his podcast and find him to be intelligent and thoughtful. I liked the early episode that had Kristen Bell on it too. They just seem like positive people. I struggle with sobriety, so I like hearing his thoughts on it since has been very open about his personal problems.

    • Snigs says:

      I really like his podcast as well! He’s really self-aware and seems genuinely interested in all sides of being a whole person. I like celebrity gossip for the entertainment value, but the comments on this site make me depressed. Everyone is so harsh and judgemental. So much unnecessary hate.

  9. Sharylmj says:

    I like these two – they seem real to me within their relationship. They obviously love each other and what’s wrong with working together? They maybe could tone down the sharing, but it’s what they do. Her skin looks amazing and she’s so beautiful, especially with little to no make up on.

    I was at a funeral yesterday, so I couldn’t give this post my full attention, but I have to speak my mind. Walmart? Kristen Bell has stated that she only works with socially responsible companies. Now she starts a line with Walmart. This is a company that sells the most guns in the US. (She constantly talks about gun control.) She’s a proud union member as her social media just pointed out, but Walmart ain’t too keen on unions. Shall we talk worker pay? How about the environmental impact of Walmart? Forcing out disabled workers?

    Not only are they working with Walmart, but the rollout on this has been awful. Who is representing these people? Don’t they have agents and managers? They give interviews and are in New York the day after the Oscars. They should have been in LA working at the parties. It’s a work weekend in LA during the Oscars. Instead they went to NY. Krysten Ritter (one of the little players in Veronica Mars) had such good representation she presented at the Oscars. I’m beginning to wonder if the two are just over the acting aspect of Hollywood. What does my friend always say to me? “Are you working hard or working smart?”

    One of the many problems these two people have is that they talk too much. They give too many interviews. They can’t keep up with all the lies they say. Why does no one call them out on these things?

    • Cay says:

      And do I have this correct that this company was started by the same person who started The Honest Company, Sean Kane? Sean Kane (and also Phil McGraw’s son Jay McGraw)? Does someone want to check me on that? If Sean Kane started this, how is this not just an extension of The Honest Company (which I don’t think is sold at Walmart)? Seems like a “ploy” to get those same products sold at Walmart. This is so shady.
