The more I hear from Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, the more I think they’re perfect for each other. Take the story that Kristen told on The Talk earlier this week, unbeknownst to Dax, that their 3 and 4 year-old daughters had walked in on them having sex. Kristen didn’t give Dax a heads up on that and he had to find out when a stranger blurted it out to him at a restaurant. Instead of getting upset at Kristen (which he still might have done, I have no idea) he turned it into his own story and elaborated on it while on Jimmy Kimmel. That’s what these two do, they tell funny stories about their family life and their kids on talk shows but it’s ok because we don’t know what their kids look like. Here’s what Dax told Kimmel:
Dax on Kristen promoting Bad Moms Christmas
She’s very active and she does a ton of interviews. Eventually you run out of stuff to talk about, as you’re seeing now. I was at a restaurant last night this is the honest truth. This stranger come up to me and he goes ‘Hey, I just read your kids walked in on you having sex.’
I was like ‘What are you talking about?’
‘I just saw a headline it said your kids walked in on you having sex.’
I don’t even know that she told that story. I don’t know what version she told of it.
Kimmel: Oh so it did happen
Ish. I go ok. They didn’t walk in while I was like pounding mom. We put on the TV in the living room, we’re bad parents. We stole away for minute. Afternoon delight. We’re just under the sheets. They walked in. It’s more like explaining why we’re taking a nap in the afternoon while they were on the loose. It wasn’t in full coitus interruptus. Suffice to say I couldn’t have gotten out of bed at that point.

Ok that was funny and Dax can tell a good story. I don’t know, do you think it will be more or less embarrassing for their daughters when they read that not only did their mom let it slip that they walked in on their parents, but that their dad confirmed it? Dax’s story makes it sound much more innocent though, like they could have been taking a naked nap. Either way if these kids are typical teenagers or tweens when they see this (and that’s the age they’ll be) they’ll be mortified. They’ll probably have more recent things to get embarrassed about at that point though, considering who their parents are.
