“If it’s, like, a Wednesday and we can’t celebrate and we’re both working late, then — guess what — your birthday is on a Saturday,” Bell, 43, revealed on the Wednesday, September 26, episode of Today. “They don’t know.”

When asked if her children ever wear dirty clothes, the Good Place actress, who is notorious for keeping it real, replied, “Of course! Like, duh. The answer is duh.” While Bell revealed she is Johnny-on-the-spot with diapers, she will occasionally ask for a little assistance. 

“Sometimes I’ll try to convince her to do it,” she explained. “Like if I’m lying down, I’ll be like, ‘Pop that diaper off. Go grab me a new one, and then I’ll lace it up for ya.’”

According to Bell, both girls are very inquisitive and currently fixated on death. Questions the Bad Moms star hears regularly include: “Are we going to die?” and “When are we going to die?” At the moment, Bell is still figuring out how to handle their queries. As she explained to The Guardian in an interview published on Wednesday, September 26, “When you tell [your kids] some gigantic mythical story that they can sense is not true, they know you’re lying to them.”

While discussing her family, Bell also opened up about her marriage of nearly four years. The couple will celebrate their wedding anniversary on October 17. “I’m the polar opposite of my husband and that is not hyperbolic. We disagree on 99.9 percent of things and we argue all the time,” she admitted to the U.K. paper. And yet, they are happy. “We both have the type of brain that likes to be stimulated by the devil’s advocate point of view, so it works.”
