The Good Place actress took to Instagram on Thursday to share a snapshot of her little girl's "first daddy daughter swim in Lake Michigan." However, the pic was framed to make her husband and their daughter look tiny, and as if they were standing on the palm of her hand.
Pretty neat trick using perspective to obfuscate your family photo, Bell! In fact, Shepard is so far away it's not even possible to tell if he's in the water with their 3-year-old daughter, Lincoln, or their 1-year-old daughter, Delta.
The couple have been very vocal about keeping their children out of the spotlight and away from the lenses of prying paparazzi, making a photo of either of their kids something of a rarity. Clearly, they’ve found a way to respect their kids' privacy while still sharing adorable family photos.
Bell, a Michigan native, called the lake swim "a [rite] of passage for any Mitten baby," referring to the distinctive shape of her home state.
Bell and Shepard, who also happens to hail from The Great Lakes State, celebrated their return to their stomping grounds with a beaming beach selfie on Wednesday, which Bell captioned, " MICHIGAN you dirty old mitten...you still make us happy after all these years. #lakemichiganbeach"
