The Good Place‘s Kristen Bell was on The Real daytime panel show this week and we love what she said about the importance of treating anxiety and depression with any other disease or condition that has less stigma.
While visiting the ladies which include our bumpwatch alum Tamera Mowry-Housley and our other alum as a guest panelist, Melanie Brown, Bell shared her feelings about feeling inadequate about being a parent.
Actually, the Veronica Mars alum speaks often about destimatizing mental health problems by sharing her own experiences.
“I talk to someone and we have a check in once a year,” Bell opened up. “I take a pill if I need to. I make sure to exercise. I basically know my issue.”
Perhaps to counter the shame that is associated with seeing a therapist and taking psychosomatic drugs, Bell said, “It’s like for me, knowing if you have Diabetes. You wouldn’t deny a diabetic medicine.”
She also expressed what I think is beautiful about her union with hubby Dax Shepard who is a super supportive husband.
“If I have spent four days on the couch, my husband goes, ‘hey you want to go for a hike or do you want to go out with your girlfriend?,'” Bell shared, before adding, “You have to stay aware and take care of yourself.”
Congratulations are in order for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell on the birth of their second child together, Delta Bell Shepard.
Yestrday, Friday December 19, the couple announced the birth separately on Twitter:
New dad again and The Parenthood star tweeted, “Delta Bell Shepard is here. She doesn’t look like either Kristen or me, but we’re gonna keep her anyway,” the proud papa announced.
Bell followed up with an equally fun announcement which featured a baby and mama gorilla.
“The estrogen has now hit critical mass! Good luck, Dax. And welcome to the world DELTA BELL SHEPARD,” the actress tweeted.
Baby Delta joins big sister Lincoln, 21 months. The couple announced the baby news this past July
Current Bellyitch Bumpwatch mama Kristen Bell and recent alum Kerry Washington met up this week at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association‘s Grants Banquet, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.
Washington was in a strapless paisley patterned silk Mary Katrantzou resort 2015 dress and blue pumps.
Bell, who is expecting her second child with her actor husband Dax Shepard, looked radiant in a bump-hugging midnight blue Andre GN sequinned dress with Rupert Sanderson heels and Antonini jewels. The Veronica Mars actress is mom to 15-month old Lincoln.
Washington looked to be down to her pre-baby size already after giving birth to her first child, a daughter, with hubby NFL‘s Nnamdi Asomugha in April.
Of the encounter, Bell tweeted compliments to Kerry:
Bell told US Weekly that for this pregnancy, she has learned to reign in the cravings by avoiding refined sugars.
“I mean, I still crave food in general but I’m not like waking up with a starve, going, ‘I need dark chocolate!'”
She also shared that this pregnancy is precisely like her previous one only this round, she is chasing a toddler at the same time.
