How Dax Shepard “Nursed” Kristen Bell Back to Health
In the latest episode of her popular new series Momsplaining, Kristen Bell explains how her husband nursed from her breast to help her recover from a painful bout of mastitis.
Yep, Kristen Bell is going there on her hilarious new series, Momsplaining. In the latest episode, she talks about the agony of mastitis, a common infection that occurs during breastfeeding, as well as how her heroic hubby Dax Shepard helped her out when she experienced her third bout of it. You see, they were on location, far away from her doctor, her baby had already stopped breastfeeding, and she needed immediate relief. See where this is going?
“I’m going to need you to suck this out,” she told her comedian hubby. “We can talk about it, we can be weird about it or you can just go ahead and nurse.”
Is your heart fluttering yet? Have you ever heard of a more dedicated guy?
Watch that hilarious riff—plus, find out what freshly squeezed breast milk really tastes like—on Bell’s newest episode of Momsplaining (you can catch up on all the episodes on producer Ellen DeGeneres’s YouTube channel). We’ve already told you how the web series is the funniest thing on the Internet right now, and this ep hits a new high. It involves nothing more than Kristen sitting in a kitchen with Scandal actress/new mom Katie Lowes as they discuss the existential weirdness of bringing home a new human being (who, spoiler alert, you may not instantly bond with), and then get into the nitty-gritty of breastfeeding.
Remember how Kristen used a watermelon to describe childbirth in a previous episode? Well, check out what she does with a grape and a croissant here. Let’s just say this woman has a way with fruit.
We can’t wait to hear what Kristen (and perhaps a mango or kumquat?) does next.
