Kristen Bell has been pretty tight-lipped about her pregnancy thus far, but during a Thursday sit-down on Ellen, the petite actress may have accidentally revealed her baby’s gender.
The 32-year-old Forgetting Sarah Marshall star was speaking about her pregnancy with Ellen DeGeneres Thursday, and said that her fiance, 38-year-old Dax Shepard, was excited for “all the off-roading he’ll have in this tiny partner.” DeGeneres seized the soundbite, asking Bell if that meant she was going to be having a baby boy.
But Bell covered her derriere nicely, reports MSN.
“Maybe?” she squeaked, before arguing: “Do you have to be a boy to off-road? Absolutely not! I think [Dax]’s going to force [the baby], even if it’s a sloth, to off-road,” she laughed.
Bell is an animal lover who famously freaked out when Shepard brought a real-life sloth to the couple’s home in a video that went viral last year. Of course, we embedded it below. We’re looking out for you.
Anyway, Bell also told DeGeneres that she fears giving birth, calling it a “terrifying” process.
“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,” she told DeGeneres.
Bell is due at the end of spring, and is doing her best to prepare for the challenge of motherhood.
“This is without question the biggest transition I’ll make in my life to date,” she told EW earlier this month.
