For someone who didn’t think she would be able to love her baby as much as her dogs, Kristen Bell is proving herself wrong a second time! News just broke on June 23 that she and her husband, Dax Shepard, are expecting baby No. 2, making 15-month-old Lincoln a soon-to-be big sister!
"I can confirm that Kristen and Dax are expecting their second child and a sibling for Lincoln," a rep for the couple exclusively confirms to Entertainment Tonight. "The whole family is beyond excited."
The couple, who tied the knot in October of 2013, welcomed their first child, Lincoln, back in March of the same year. While Kristen’s pregnancy went smoothly, the 33-year-old recently revealed that she was afraid she wouldn’t love the baby as much as the couple’s furry pets.
"I kept saying to Dax in all sincerity during my pregnancy, 'I just don't know how I'm going to like her as much as I like the dogs.' I was being serious," Kristen told Flare magazine, via Us Weekly. "Because I f—king love my dogs; they are my children."
Some mamas — like Megan Fox — often feel a deep bond to their child while they’re still in the womb. Yet, in the case of Kristen, she didn’t feel that connection throughout the nine months.
“I love people the more I know them, and I didn't know her. It could've been a water bottle in my belly, that's about how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy.”
It turns out that all Kristen needed was a little FaceTime with her mini-me. "But within about 24 hours after she came out, my hormones reset, and they reprogrammed my feelings about her," Kristen revealed.
Here’s hoping Kristen will feel “connected” during the second time around!
Congratulations to the family!
