AceShowbiz - %cKristen Bell% and %cDax Shepard% once again prove their love for each other in a way that no one would've expected. The 37-year-old actress revealed on her new EllenTube series "Momsplaining with Kristen Bell" that she once breastfed her husband.
Before you're grossed out, Kristen explained why she had to do it and it's actually for an understandable reason. The "Veronica Mars" alum told "Scandal" star %cKatie Lowes%, who is a new mom, that she suffered from mastitis three times.
Mastitis is a painful infection of the breast tissue which is caused by blocked milk ducts and often requires antibiotics. The first two times, she had antibiotics to cure it. But the final time she had mastitis, she was in Atlanta with Dax and their baby had already stopped nursing. Kristen said they were unable to call a doctor at the time, leaving them with only one choice.
"I said to my husband, 'I really need you to suck this out. We could talk about it, we could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse,' " the "Frozen (2013)" voice actress recalled. "He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I've never been more in love in my life."
The two ladies also talked about what breast milk tastes like. Katie, who gave birth to her first child in October 2017, said she tried some of her own breast milk that she had pumped earlier that morning. She was pleasantly surprised to discover it tasted like "vanilla sweetened almond milk."
As for breastfeeding in public, Katie thought she'd be a champion for breastfeeding in public, but she prefers to cover up. She, however, still hopes to find the courage to "free the nipple."
Kristen and Dax, who have been together for ten years, were engaged in 2010 but only got married in 2013 after the state of California passed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage. They welcomed their first child, a daughter named Lincoln Bell Shepard, on March 28, 2013. Their second daughter Delta Bell Shepard was born on December 19, 2014.
The couple has decided to not have more kids and Dax revealed in 2016 that he had a vasectomy after they found out Kristen was pregnant with their second child.
