Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have both been fairly open when discussing their marriage and family, despite their celebrity status, and it’s this candor and down-to-earth nature that makes them so darn relatable.
However, Shepard would like point out that Bell gives so many interviews, that it’s hard to keep track of which hilarious or embarrassing stories she’s shared with the public.
Dax recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his upcoming Netflix movie, El Camino Christmas. During his interview, he talked about how being married to Kristen Bell frequently means that when she tells a story … it involves him.
“She does a ton of interviews, and you know eventually you just run out of stuff to talk about,” Dax said. “I was at a restaurant last night — this is true, this is the honest truth — and this stranger comes 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?’ He goes, ‘Yeah, I saw a headline and your wife 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.”
(The story he’s referring to recently made the rounds on the internet after Kristen revealed during an interview on The Talk that their kids had once walked in on her and Dax having sex.)
Shepard corroborated the anecdote, but wants to point out that it was taken out of context, and offered up some helpful particulars.
“Okay, they didn’t walk in while I was, like, ‘pounding’ Mom,” he clarified. “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, and it was more just explaining why we were taking, like, ‘a nap’ in the afternoon.”
“It wasn’t full coitus interruptus,” he said — although he was quick to add that there was definitely some R-rated canoodling happening under the bedsheets. “Suffice it to say, I couldn’t have gotten out of bed at that moment.”
Well, I suppose it’s always good to give your side of the story. Particular when said story involves your kids walking in on you and your wife during foreplay.
Now, here’s hoping their kids never, ever read this.
