Sex education can be an uncomfortable topic for parents to teach their children. However, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have found an “ingenious” way around it for their kids; 8-year-old Lincoln and 6-year-old Delta.
Shepard credited his wife as the mastermind behind the brilliant idea. The stars detailed how it went down on an episode of the actor’s podcast.
Kristen Bell’s Driver’s Seat Idea
While on an episode of “Armchair Expert,” Shepard said Bell found a subtle way to let their daughters know they are in charge of intimacy with their partners, PEOPLE reported. The host said,
“Right away it’s like, you’re in charge of this and you will decide to put this in your vagina… Not the man puts his penis in your vagina.”
Shepard explained that a man has a “ridiculous protrusion,” which would make it seem he was in the driver’s seat, but they were in control.
The 46-year-old said he does not want his girls getting intimate just for somebody’s approval but because they want to. The comedian boldly stated that if his “daughters are horny and want to have sex,” that is his favorite activity.
The couple also detailed how noisy and cluttered the house is with kids, explaining that accepting that fact makes for a happier parenting experience.
The “ChiPs” Stars Detail Their Kids’ Bathing Ritual
Bathing might be considered a daily activity for most people, but not for Shepard and Bell. The Blast reported that the couple is part of the new irregular bathing trend.
In an August episode of “The View,” Shepard and Bell explained why they find it unnecessary to bathe their kids each night, despite facing backlash from internet users.
The father-of-two said they bathe their daughters every night until the children began going to bed themselves. The couple started questioning when they last washed their kids because the girls did not smell bad.
So now they wait until the children smell funky before washing them. This could be about five or six days long.
Dax Shepard Came Through As Husband Of The Year
Marriage requires cooperation from husband and wife in exciting ways. Earlier this month, The Blast detailed how Shepard came through for Bell in a breastfeeding emergency.
On an episode of “Momsplaining with Kristen,” Bell joined “Scandal” star Katie Lowes, and they spoke about their breastfeeding struggles and how they deal with issues such as a blocked duct.
The “Veronica Mars” star then reminisced about having a blocked duct in 2018 and asking for her husband’s help. Bell said she told Shepard:
“I really need you to suck this out. We could talk about it, we could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse.”
The 46-year-old immediately came to his wife’s rescue. Bell said he “pulled it out. He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and spitting into this cup.”
As Shepard cleared the way for their child to nurse freely, his wife said she has “never been more in love” in her life.
