Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s daughter, Lincoln, may only be nine months old, but Kristen’s already decided she wants to be a progressive parent as Lincoln grows.
When Kristen sat down with Chelsea Lately on Monday, she shared her developing parenting philosophy — especially when it comes to what Lincoln will be allowed to watch on TV when she’s old enough to understand… and even more especially when she’s watching something Mommy stars in.
“I’m not going to just show her exclusively my work,” the Frozen actress joked. “But wouldn’t that be amazing? Now that I’ve said it out loud, I kind of want to do that.”
But Kristen does want Lincoln to be able to see anything she and Dax have ever been in, even if it’s not necessarily child appropriate.
“She can watch whatever she wants,” Kristen said. “People ask, ‘well, you’ve done sexy material. Do you not want her to see that?’ And I’m like, ‘my guess is if she’s anything like the other 5 billion people on the planet, she’s gonna grow up and enjoy sex.’ So I’m not going to be shocked by that.”
And as Chelsea said, it’s a great attitude to have — although we can’t remember a time we’ve ever wanted to watch something where our parents are talking about or having sex (even in a fictional movie), so Kristen might be able to steer clear of that one altogether.
“I just think you’re setting yourself up for disaster if you’re trying to keep them little,” Kristen said. “She’s gonna grow up. She has — newsflash — a vagina, and she’s gonna figure it out one day, and more power to her!”
