Ok, clearly Jeff is out of town and I'm spending way too much time watching TV and playing on the computer... But, did anyone else catch Kristen Bell on Ellen this afternoon?
Honestly, I couldn't tell you one single movie or TV show she is in; but, I might have just developed a new celebrity-girl crush. She is adorable and hilarious and her baby-daddy/fiance is Dax Shepherd (who I love from Parenthood; and, before today, I had never thought of him as having any other life outside of Jasmine, Jabar, and the Braverman fam). What more could you ask for in a person?
Anyway, in her conversation with Ellen, Bell told her that they had to wait until they saw the baby to give it a name; to which Ellen responded, "Oh, it's not going to look like that all its life, don't name it 'Wrinkly Thing' or something." I couldn't agree more, Ellen. Does a baby really pop out looking like a Fred or a Bethany? Seriously. I want to know.
Bell eventually conceded by saying, "They do look like earth worms when they are born, don't they?" Why didn't I think of that comparison? It is perfect - adorable, loveable, lay-on-your-chest earthworms. Luckily, they only get cuter with time (and a bath and, sometimes, some blue lights). :)
Anyway, you should watch the clip. Here it is:
And, tell me, did you name your baby before you actually met him/her? Or, if you waited, how exactly did you know?
P.S. There was a lot of talk about Bell's obsession with sloths too, so I had to do some research. This video from the last time she was on Ellen is AWESOME. You must watch, you know, in case you need to procrastinate doing laundry or making dinner too. (And, pay attention, isn't that totally Crosby talking in the background? Love.it.)
