Once Upon a Time, Dax Shepard Nursed Kristen Bell to Relieve Her Mastitis
It appears breastfeeding complications are no match for superdad Dax Shepard.
During an episode of Kristen Bell’s web series, Momsplaining, the actress sat down with Scandal star Katie Lowes to discuss the good, the bad and the ugly truths of being a mom. But things took an, er, interesting turn when Bell revealed that her husband, Shepard, played a key role in relieving her mastitis (a clogged milk duct) after she stopped breastfeeding their two daughters, Lincoln (4) and Delta (3).
At the three-minute mark, Bell admits that she had mastitis not once, not twice, but three times. The Frozen actress goes on to explain that Shepard was forced to “nurse” her when she developed mastitis while they were out of town, and all we have to say is yaaasss!
Bell says, “So I said to my husband, ‘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.’”
And it worked! She adds, “He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I’ve never been more in love in my life.”
Us neither, Kristen. Us neither.
