During a Monday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, actress Kristen Bell opened up about family life with husband, Parenthood star Dax Shepard, and their two daughters: Lincoln, 22 months and Delta, 7 weeks.
“As someone who has never experimented with drugs, I really enjoyed it,” joked Bell of having an epidural for her unplanned C-section during Delta’s birth. “While they were doing it, I was thinking, ‘What else could we get done down there?’ … Anything to keep the epidural flowing.”
But she started “scratching her face … like a meth addict” when the medicine began to wear off.
After Bell, 34, received some Benadryl to ease the transition back to sobriety, the House of Lies star said the “cocktail” had some interesting effects.
“Do you know what looks really good when you’re on that stuff? Hand bags,” she said. “Or throw pillows or rugs. I was just like, ‘Internet shopping, woo!’ ”
She added: “Thank God I didn’t remember my credit card number. So nothing bad happened, but … honestly, a picture of a throw pillow was as mind-blowing as seeing The Matrix for the first time. That’s how I felt. I’m happy to say I’m stone-cold sober today.”
As for adding to their brood, it sounds like the Hollywood couple are happy with two.
“No. No, no. We don’t want to be outnumbered,” she quipped. “Until, I suppose, I accidentally get pregnant and my third child watches this clip and realizes that he was an accident. Sorry, honey. No, but we’re gonna cap it at two.”
