There may be plenty of shenanigans in Bad Moms, but sexism isn't one of them -- so says star Kristen Bell.

A fan took to Twitter on Friday to question the ages of Bell and co-star Mila Kunis' onscreen children in the comedy and ask if it was a sign of ageism at play. "In @BadMoms @IMKristenBell and Mila Kunis are moms of preteens but are actual moms of toddlers," the tweet reads. "Another example of Hollywood ageist sexism?"

"Mine has 5, 3, & 1yr. Close to my kids ages," Bell, who is mom to Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 1, replied. "Milas had her kids at 20-its plot line relevant-She's 33, so believable"

"I'm not saying it doesn't exist, it sure does," Bell was quick to add in a follow-up tweet. "I just know we gave it a lot of thought and it doesn't apply here."

Meanwhile, Kunis' toddler is daughter Wyatt, who turns two in October. She's also expecting baby No. 2 with Ashton Kutcher, and at the Bad Moms premiere, got real with ET about the challenges of parenting.

"Every night that we put Wyatt down, we high-five each other and we're like, 'We did it! We kept her alive!'" she joked. "And we're still in love. You high-five when you still like each other and you still like your kid at the end of the night, because sometimes they're the devil."
