Parenthood has some major perks, but it sometimes involves gross, unexpected tasks involving bodily fluids.
Kristen Bell is giving the world a glimpse behind the gauzy curtain of celebrity parenthood, sharing that even for them, stuff can get a little too real.
- During an episode of Bell’s new online parenting series Momsplaining, she talks about her struggles with breastfeeding with Scandal star and new mom Katie Lowes.
- During the back-and-forth, Bell confesses that she suffered from mastitis on three different occasions, a painful infection that makes it really tough to breastfeed.
- Finally when her baby stopped nursing and she couldn’t get in touch with her doctor, Bell turned to husband Dax Shepard for a little relief. She said she told him: “ ‘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."
- Shepard took one for the team and unblocked that milk duct. "He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him," Bell detailed. "He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I’ve never been more in love in my life."
