Dax Shepard needed to clarify that story his wife, Kristen Bell, told about their kids catching them having sex — if only for that random guy who asked him about it at a restaurant recently. As he told Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night, it happened “ish.”
While Bell, 37, was on The Talk, she was asked about an embarrassing moment with her family. “Oh, they’ve walked in on us having sex,” the A Bad Moms Christmas star said of her kids — Delta, age 2, and Lincoln, age 4.
“Okay, they didn’t walk in while I was, like, pounding Mom,” Shepard, 42, told Kimmel. “We put on the TV in the living room — we’re bad parents — and then we stole away for a minute, afternoon delight, but we were just under the sheets and they walked in. It was more just explaining why we’re taking, like, a nap in the afternoon while they were on the loose.”
“It wasn’t full coitus interruptus,” he joked, “but suffice it to say, I couldn’t have gotten out of bed at that moment. That would’ve been a strange nap I was taking.”
Shepard only found out Bell had told this story because a stranger walked up to him at a restaurant. “He goes, ‘Hey, I just read your kids walked in on you having sex,'” the El Camino Christmas actor recalled. “I was like, ‘What are you talking about?'” As he explained, “eventually you just run out of stuff to talk about” when you’re doing countless interviews on a press tour for a film. Hence, these personal stories that come out.
