Kristen Bell and their husband Dax Shepard have quickly become one of Hollywood’s most adored couples. Refreshingly honest, these two are never afraid to tackle the not-so-glamorous stuff – and pregnancy is no exception. Actress Kristen Bell shared never-before-seen photos on Instagram of her pregnancy with daughter Delta, who was celebrating her third birthday, that every mother can relate to.
Never straying from an opportunity to be candid on the difficult stuff, the Frozen star showed the less poised and primped (and more accurate) side of pregnancy. The weight gain, the hospital IV pole dance and even the mesh underwear. If you were unaware of the embarrassing hospital-grade underwear you can look forward to one day wearing it… surprise!
Although Kristen Bell and husband Dax Shepard are pretty adamant about keeping their young children out of sight and away from the media, Bell shared three hilarious pictures on Instagram followed by an adorable selfie with daughter Delta after delivery. The pictures were honest but also personal, and had many other mothers relating to her delivery room experience.
The actors have always been realistic about their lives as parents and as a married couples. Shepard speaks candidly about the work they put into keeping their marriage healthy, assuring everyone it’s not as effortless as it may seem. “We do couple’s therapy. We work it like a job,” Shepard previously revealed. “Relationships aren’t just perfect.”
“Three years ago today. 47lbs heavier,” Bell wrote in her caption. “Getting through painful contractions with backrubs and breathing. Occasionally swinging from the IV pole to try and feel sexy and open up my hips. After 36 hours of labour, I met a girl I love more than all the molecules in the world. Happy birthday, Delta. Love, mom #meshpanties.” Aside from birthday girl Delta, the couple also has an older daughter, 4-year-old Lincoln.
The photo is a rare glimpse of Kristen Bell and husband Dax Shepard’s children, one they rarely allow. The famous parents have upheld a strict photography policy with their kids, taking a strong stance against paparazzi violating the privacy of minors. The anti-paparazzi movement, No Kids, is an attempt to stop paps from ambushing the kids of celebrities with unwanted and unwarranted photos.
“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,” Bell told Access Hollywood. Bell has continued to respect the privacy of both daughters since then, while still managing to share relatable motherhood moments with her fans.
