Dax Shepard has got some explaining to do!
The 42-year-old actor stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday to promote his latest film, CHiPs, which he stars in, wrote and directed, and opened up about life at home and what it's like to raise his two daughters, 3-year-old Lincoln and 2-year-old Delta, with his wife, Kristen Bell.
“The worst thing that can happen — if you have kids, you know this — the worse thing of owning them is they wake up so early,” Shepard says, noting how he cleverly figured out a way to light-proof his daughters’ bedroom.
The routine, which consists of using aluminum foil to cover the bedroom windows and placing a towel under the door, took a painful turn on one occasion, leaving Shepard with a bruised nose bridge after slamming into a bookshelf.
“I almost blacked out," he explains. "I let a couple m-f-ers rip because I've lost sight of where I am at. I feel like I'm at an alley or something, so I let these m-f-ers fly, the kids had just heard 'Wheels on the Bus.'"
“The worst part of the story is two days later Kristen’s walking down the hallway,” he continues, “and Lincoln’s in her room trying to get this sweatshirt off — she’s like three [years old] — and her arms are all bound up in it and she’s getting frustrated and she goes, ‘Ow! F**k!'”
Mortified, Shepard and Bell decide to ignore the F-bomb in hopes that Lincoln won't say it again, but five hours later they're in for another surprise.
“I swear to God, we're at a pool party and she goes, 'This pool is f**king warm,'” he says.
