Kristen Bell was a guest on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" this week, and she revealed that her husband Dax Shepard suffered what she called an embarrassing injury while off-roading. The "Good Place" star said it happened before the couple was in coronavirus lockdown while he was ATV'ing with a friend.

"It was by himself, but he was off-roading in the mountains, and he had a buddy with him, but they were in separate off-road vehicles, and he got to an edge of a cliff," Bell explained. "He was sitting on the edge of a cliff, and he put his hand up just to look out, and the weight of his arm tipped his Polaris RZR — is what he was on — over. You don't get injured when you're inside them, but I will tell you something, it did crush all the bones in his hand. He's very embarrassed by this injury because the cardinal rule is you don't put your hands on the roll cage or outside the car at any time, that's the only chance of injury."

Three weeks ago, Bell shared a cringe-worthy video on Instagram of Shepard pulling one of the pins out of his hand that the doctor had insert to heal the injury.

"You know Dax Shepard, you know he not only holds a degree in anthropology, but also dentistry, surgery, and so he called his doctor, and he said, 'Hey, can I pull this pin out? Look at it,' and his doctor was like, 'Do it.' And he did, he is his own doctor," she told Ellen.

In a hilarious twist, Bell says that Shepard didn't even mention anything about the injury until he was home.

"He didn't call me," she explained. "He drove home, and the first thing he said when he walked through the door was, 'I just don't want to be in trouble.' Which is crazy because he's never in trouble with me. Like, I'll let you know if I'm disappointed in your actions, but I'm an adult, he's an adult, I can't get him in trouble."

"You're not in trouble, but it's not the smartest move we could have made," she told him.

The couple has been practicing social distancing and staying home as much as possible during the pandemic.

The CDC has issued some other tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
