Ah, the old kids-walked-in-during-sex catastrophe

Oops. Kristen Bell's and Dax Shepard's notorious — and hilarious — acting skills came in handy recently when their daughters walked in on them having sex.

The always-relatable Bell recently described said stop, drop and roll of marital relations on The Talk to host Sara Gilbert — while wearing pajamas in a giant bed alongside Sharon Osbourne, of course. Like you do. Gilbert inquired about the most awkward thing Bell and Shepard's preschool-age daughters — Delta, 2, and Lincoln, 4 — had ever walked in on their parents doing. The always matter-of-fact Bell had no trouble remembering and instantly 'fessed up: "Oh, they've walked in on us having sex."

The studio audience gasped — as if this were a majorly shocking event in parenting history. But come on; is it really? Doesn't this sort of mishap happen to plenty of parents? No? Just me? Well, OK then.

Actually, it sounds like Bell and husband Shepard managed to stay majorly chill about the interruption, asking the girls, "Hey, what's up, what's up, what's up? What do you neeeeed?" And then: "Mommy and Daddy are just going to take a nap for a few more minutes." Valid white lie, Bell. Props.
