Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have baby No. 2 on the way and the actress is one lucky mama, because she’s had no complications with her pregnancy.
During a recent interview with Us Weekly, the Veronica Mars star told the mag that, just like her first pregnancy with daughter, Lincoln, it’s been “really easy.”
“Really easy, thank God,” the actress said of her pregnancy with baby No. 2. “I’ve had a lot of friends who have had rough pregnancies and I’m really, really thankful. People are affected differently by hormones, we’re all different.”
But how does her daughter feel about having a little sibling?
“I think [she understands], but you can’t be sure what’s going on in her brain,” Bell joked to the mag. “She might not get it, she might think mommy’s just gaining weight. I don’t know!”
Although, Bell won’t be gaining much weight at all during her pregnancy, thanks to her healthy eating. In fact, it seems as though the hardest part of her pregnancy is not being able to indulge in cravings for sugary snacks because she’s the Neutrogena Naturals spokesperson. So, how has her life has been without sugar?
“I did it for thirty days as a challenge, we both did it to see if we could do it,” she said of herself and Shepard. “The end of thirty days, we ate a bunch of brownies and cookies and nonsense. And within five minutes we looked at each other and went, ‘Oh my god. I’m going to barf. This is toxic.’ It simply felt like our bodies didn’t want it.
“The sugars I do now are like, I’ll have an apple, I’ll have two apples, I’ll have peaches, I’ll have a huge thing of grapes. Being aware of high fructose corn syrup has made a big difference,” she added.
