Pregnant Kristen Bell revealed on Ellen DeGeneres' show the sex of her baby...sorta.
The House of Lies star implies that she was having a boy when she shares that her fiance, Parenthood star Dax Shepard, is excited to have a "tiny partner" to do "off-roading" with. When DeGeneres asks Bell if this meant she was having a boy, the actress plays coy, saying, "Maybe?"
Bell adds, "Do you have to be a boy to off-road? Absolutely not! I think he's going to force [the baby], even if it's a sloth, to off-road."
As for her feelings about natural childbirth, Bell, 32, jokes that she has "nothing to prove." "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."
The actress is loving being pregnant, telling the talk-show host that her self-esteem has "never been higher." Saying of her baby bump, "I look in the mirror and I think it's the reverse body dysmorphia, because I can understand what my shape is, but I see Brooke Shields. And it doesn't make a lick of sense, but it's something that the baby's giving me hormonally makes me feel really giggly and happy."
