Kristen Bell shared this cute picture from the set of ‘Veronica Mars’ yesterday afternoon. The 32-year-old actress looks great, especially considering she just gave birth her daughter Lincoln, less than three months ago!
Kristen wrote along with the picture, “A break on the Veronica Mars movie set for me,” she wrote in the caption. “So obviously, I’m trying out this weighted hula hoop.” In the picture, a smiling Bell showed off her hula-hoop skills!
Nearly 92,000 fans funded the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign, raising more than $5 million in a month. The cult TV series was canceled after three seasons in 2007.
“I feel f-cking great,” Bell told Indie Wire before filming began. “I’m also not responsible for all the prep work, so it’s easy for me. I love the script, and I’m so excited to see everyone again. Working with my old friends and working on this project is going to be the perfect summer experience.”
The Veronica Mars movie will feature many familiar faces, including Ryan Hansen, Krysten Ritter, Tina Majorino, Chris Lowell, Francis Capra, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Daran Norris, Amanda Noret, Brandon Hillock, Kevin Sheridan and Jonathan Chesner.
I never watched Veronica Mars, BUT I do love her….so I will probably have to watch the movie!
We love Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, and love the unusual yet patriotic name they’ve given to their new baby girl! Dax tweeted earlier this morning that “Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom’s beauty and dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!” Not sure what the obsession with breast part is all about, but we freaking DIG IT!
Do you think they’ll shorten little Lincoln’s name for a cute nickname like Lin? Linc? Cole? Thoughts on the actors’ new brood?!
Dax Shepard wrote a candid blog post about the recent death of his father, who lost his battle to cancer at the at of 62 in late December.
In the post, Dax opened up about his father’s AA relationships, his love for food and women, and bonding over his cancer diagnosis.
Shepard, who is expecting his first child with fiancée Kristen Bell, described the moment his dad met his unborn child.
“At one point, and unbeknownst to both of us, my wife walked into the room. She had flown in from LA without any warning. It was a surprise. It was an amazing, incredible, perfectly timed surprise,” the actor wrote.
“She lifted her shirt up and he put his hand on her swollen stomach. He left it there for the better part of an hour. He was smiling from ear to ear, sitting contently, unable to put together a sentence, but still capable of connecting to the new family member we were creating,” Shepard continued.
“He wasn’t going to make it to the birth, but that didn’t get in the way of him meeting the new baby. It was an emotional and triumphant moment. One I will never forget. If I live to be a thousand, I will still be in debt to my wife for giving him that one last thrill.”
The soon-to-be parents expect their bundle of joy to arrive in a couple of months.
This is the most precious story! I just love it! What a moving and beautiful picture. I’m sure they are so thankful they have this.
Did Kristen Bell accidentally reveal the sex of her baby while visiting Ellen Degeneres yesterday? The pregnant actress stopped by the Ellen show, for an episode that will air today, and maybe have let a little secret slip.
The House of Lies actress, 32, revealed how her fiance Dax Shepard, 38, was excited about “all the off-roading he’ll have in this tiny partner.” Ellen DeGeneres immediately pounced on the info, asking Bell if that meant that she was pregnant with a boy.
“Maybe?” the actress evaded the question coyly before coming to her own defense. “Do you have to be a boy to off-road? Absolutely not! I think [Dax]‘s going to force [the baby], even if it’s a sloth, to off-road,” she laughed.
Bell also opened up about her fear of childbirth, calling the process “terrifying”. “I feel like, when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back and I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it’s over because I’ve seen the videos — and it looks terrifying,” she told DeGeneres.
The actress is due at the end of spring, and she has admitted she’s bracing for the changes of motherhood. “This is without question the biggest transition I’ll make in my life to date,” she Entertainment Weekly.
Kristen Bell tweeted this adorable picture of her baby bump on Thursday, Jan. 18, showing her dog lying on her belly.
The 32-year-old actress is expecting her first child with ‘Parenthood’ actor Dax Shepard. “Some people are more excited than others about the baby filling,” she wrote.
Bell announced she was pregnant in November, and since then she has been proudly showing off her growing baby bump. During an appearance on The Tonight Show Friday, Jan. 11 she joked, “I’m about 400 pounds-months pregnant.”
In a random side-story, I was listening to Howard Stern earlier this week, and Tom Arnold was on the show. He was talking about how after YEARS of struggling with infertility (on his part) his wife was finally pregnant. At 53, Tom is about to become a first time dad. When talking about his years of struggling with low sperm count, he revealed that several of his friends came forward and offered up their sperm, so the comedian could finally become a father. He said that Dax Shepard was one of his close friends who offered up his sperm, and then quickly said something to the effect of “I don’t know if I was supposed to share that.” I wonder how often that happens? Celebrities just randomly offering up their sperm to their friends? Something to think about.
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are expecting their first baby!
The ‘Parenthood’ actor and ‘House of Lies’ actress are “so excited – they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” a close friend tells people.
Bell, 32, and Shepard, 37, have been dating since 2007, and have been engaged for three years.
While promoting their film Hit and Run this summer, the couple said children were definitely in their future and would likely come before a wedding, since they don’t plan to marry until same-sex marriage is legal in their home state of California.
“We wouldn’t want to invite all of our friends who don’t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just don’t feel right about that,” Shepard said on The View in July. Added Bell: “Can you think about how rude that would feel?”
Having kids before marriage, Bell told Larry King in August, “doesn’t really bother us.”
Anyhoo, when will the lovebirds finally tie the knot? The couple, who have been engaged since 2010 insist they won’t walk down the aisle until everyone has the right to marry.
“This is very much up to the state of California,” Bell told Celebuzz. “We’ve been very vocal about not wanting to be married in a state that doesn’t allow that right to all of its citizens. We’ll wait until California gets on the right side of history.”
Bradley Cooper and Jason Bateman were also at the premiere. I think the movie looks….. okay. Bradley Cooper in dreads? Meh, I’ll pass.
