Kristen Bell on 'Ellen' (Michael Rozman)
Kristen Bell better have a big overnight bag at the ready for when she goes into labor because she’s bringing some unusual items with her into the delivery room.
During an appearance on Thursday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the 32-year-old actress opened up about her pregnancy and childbirth plan – with her trademark sense of humor intact.
“I’ve got nothing to prove,” the “House of Lies” actress quipped when asked if she will have a natural childbirth. “I feel like when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back. And, I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it’s over because I’ve seen the videos and it looks terrifying.”
“My self-esteem has never been higher,” Bell said. “I look in the mirror and I think it’s the reverse body dysmorphia because I can understand what my shape is, but I see Brooke Shields. And it doesn’t make a lick of sense, but it’s something that the baby’s giving me hormonally [that] makes me feel really giggly and happy.”
While the couple isn’t revealing the gender of their baby, DeGeneres thought she figured it out when Bell talked about how Shepard, 38, is looking forward to "all the off-roading he'll have in this tiny partner." But when DeGeneres asked if the baby is a boy, Bell responded coyly, “Maybe? Do you have to be a boy to off-road? Absolutely not!”
Bell later exhibited some of the giggly and happy side effects from her pregnancy when DeGeneres surprised her with a sloth. If you recall, Bell is a big fan of the critters – and when she appeared on the talk show last year, she shared footage – which went viral – of her emotional freakout when Shepard arranged to have a sloth visit their home as a surprise 31st birthday gift.
With DeGeneres looking on, Bell fed and cooed over Lola the sloth, making us realize that she’ll be an awesome mom ... if only she gets out of the delivery room intact.
