Kristen Bell on Baby Daughter Lincoln: "She's Gonna Grow Up and Enjoy Sex"
The facts of life as told by mama Kristen Bell! During an appearance on Chelsea Lately Monday, Jan. 6, the House of Lies actress shared her plans on how she'll raise her 10-month-old baby girl Lincoln with husband Dax Shepard. The new mom says she won't be censoring her daughter from watching her more risque movie and TV roles in the future.
"She can watch whatever she wants," the Lifeguard actress told host Chelsea Handler. "People ask, 'Oh, well you've done some sexy material. Do you not want her to see that?' And I'm like, 'My guess is if she's anything like the other 5 billion people on the planet, she's gonna grow up and enjoy sex, so I'm not gonna be shocked by that.'"
Bell said she's has already accepted that Lincoln won't stay young forever. "I just think you're setting yourself up for disaster if you try to keep them little," she explained. "She's gonna grow up. She has -- newsflash! -- a vagina, and she's gonna figure it out one day, and more power to her."
Since giving birth to Lincoln, Bell has been outspoken about her journey into motherhood. In the December issue of Flare, she admitted that she didn't bond with her daughter during her pregnancy.
"I kept saying to Dax in all sincerity during my pregnancy, 'I just don't know how I'm going to like her as much as I like the dogs.' I was being serious," she told the magazine. "Because I f--king love my dogs; they are my children."
"I love people the more I know them, and I didn't know her," Bell went on to explain. "It could've been a water bottle in my belly, that's about how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy. But within about 24 hours after she came out, my hormones reset, and they reprogrammed my feelings about her."
