Kristen Bell talks baby Lincoln, sloths and Dax Shepard as a dad on 'Ellen'


Kristen Bell is loving life as a new mom to two-month-old Lincoln Bell Shepard, but as she tells Ellen DeGeneres, she's in no rush to put her newborn girl in the spotlight.

In the above interview, Bell tells DeGeneres why she and husband Dax Shepard ("Parenthood") have decided not to share photos of Lincoln with the public. And DeGeneres playfully decides to draw a picture of Lincoln based on Bell's description.

The "Veronica Mars" star also tells DeGeneres that Shepard is a natural dad: "It's like he's made a new best friend. He just talks to her all day and sings to her all day." And that the name Lincoln was his choice: "It's always been Dax's favorite name. And he's substantially bigger than I am, so I lost."

Of course, DeGeneres can't resist bringing up Bell's favorite animal, the sloth, asking Bell to choose which is cuter: a baby sloth or her own baby?
