Kristen Bell: Sex Scenes During Pregnancy

By: Kimberly Ripley - January 23, 2014

Kristen Bell joked recently with Conan O’Brien about filming sex scenes for her Showtime series House of Lies while pregnant. She and costar Adam Brody, she admits, rocked some rather awkward manipulation in order to pull of the filming without either cracking up or looking incredibly awkward.

Brody “affectionately refers to our sex scenes as our threesomes because my belly was just on top,” Bell said during her chat with Conan, adding that he was an incredible sport as the two attempted to roll around in the hay and make it look incredibly hot and sexy.

Kristen hopes that one day daughter Lincoln (that infamous cropped out baby bump during those sex scenes in House of Lies) will one day appreciate her mother’s work as an actress.

“And now I can forever look at my daughter and say, ‘Oh, you were pregnant for that!’ ” she said.

Following her visit with Conan O’Brien, Bell dished to Chelsea Handler about her daughter one day viewing those sex scenes.

“My guess is if she is like the other 5 billion people on the planet, she’s going to grow up and enjoy sex,” Bell said. “I’m not going to be shocked by that.”

Kristen Bell and hubby Dax Shepard (of Parenthood fame) started dating back in 2007 and in March of 2013 their daughter Lincoln was born. The two tied the knot in what they and their friends have dubbed the “Worst Wedding Ever” in October of 2013. It took place at the Los Angeles County Clerk’s office in Beverly Hills, where the two applied for a marriage license. They were then told they had to provide their own licensed officiant in order to hold the ceremony there. After making many phone calls, they wound up saying “I do” in front of people they didn’t even know.

Kristen is the star of the upcoming Veronica Mars film.
