For a split second on Dec. 19, we thought Kristen Bell had some exciting news to tell us! On Instagram, the actress posted a photo of herself rocking a gigantic baby bump — but it turned out to be a throwback pic in honor of her daughter Delta’s third birthday. See the shot, and a few others from that big day, in the video below!
The 37-year-old, who also shares four-year-old daughter Lincoln with hubby Dax Shepard, rarely posts images of her girls on social media, and if she does, their faces are obscured in some way. After her first pregnancy, the Veronica Mars alum explained, “I’m telling you right now, we don’t want our daughter’s face anywhere ever until she decides because I have the utmost respect for her.”
Last month, Kristen joked about the couple’s parenting strategy. “We switch kids a lot,” she told Us Weekly. “I’ll just be like, ‘I don’t want to talk to this kid anymore.’” The blonde beauty added that there’s no trick to being a good mom “other than having really good communication with your partner and being able to say ‘I’m reaching capacity. So I need to go take a hike today,’ or ‘I need to go have lunch with a girlfriend.’”
The pair decided a few years ago to stop at two. Dax revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he got a vasectomy shortly after Kristen had a pregnancy scare in 2015. “Last year, my wife was working in Atlanta. We were there and she all of a sudden goes, ‘Oh, my gosh! I’m so stupid. I’ve been sick for 10 days and ignoring it; I’m definitely pregnant.’ And I was like, ‘We’re going to turn into Jon & Kate Plus 8 or something…’ That was Tuesday. I flew home Wednesday for a meeting. Thursday morning I had a vasectomy,” he shared. Hey, we would watch a reality show with this family any day!
