Kristen Bell Says Being Mom-Shamed Is The Reason Her Daughter No Longer Uses Diapers

Kristen Bell carries a few boxes to her trunk while out in Los Angeles on Saturday (July 4).

The 39-year-old actress wore a pretty floral dress during her errand, as well as a mask and fanny pack, as she picked up some food orders to celebrate the Fourth of July at home with her family.

Just recently, Kristen opened up about how they’re getting their youngest child, Delta, out of diapers, after Kristen was mom-shamed over it.

“The Twitterverse was kind of mom-shaming me, which I’m not interested in,” she told Today’s Parent in a recent interview. “I kept responding with the same thing: ‘Every child is different,’ which they are. And yes, I have a five-and-a-half-year-old who still sometimes wets the bed and that’s OK! But she’s getting there.”

Kristen added, “We wake her up at about 11 p.m. when she’s like a zombie and put her on the toilet…I think it’s really normal and no one should feel ashamed if their kid has an irregular pattern for potty training. And if you want to try this 11 o’clock make-them-pee trick, great, there’s no shame in any of it.”

Last month, after Kristen admitted that Delta was still in diapers, many other moms left rude comments on her social media pages.

Kristen Bell is 'Happy to Relinquish' Her Role of Molly on 'Central Park' to Black Actress

Kristen Bell is reacting to news that she is being re-cast on Central Park.

Earlier on Tuesday (June 24), it was announced that she will no longer be voicing the character a Molly, a biracial teenager on the Apple TV+ animated series. The show also vowed to re-cast her with a Black or mixed race actress.

Kristen is now breaking her silence on the re-cast, saying that playing Molly was an act of complicity that showed a “lack of awareness of my pervasive privilege.”

“This is a time to acknowledge our acts of complicity. Here is one of mine,” Kristen wrote on her social media accounts. “Playing the character of Molly on Central Park shows a lack of awareness of my pervasive privilege. Casting a mixed race character with a white actress undermines the specificity of the mixed race and Black American experience.”

She continued: “It was wrong and we, on the Central Park team, are pledging to make it right. I am happy to relinquish this role to someone who can give a much more accurate portrayal and I will commit to learning, growing and doing my part for equality and inclusion.”

News of Kristen‘s re-cast comes just after Jenny Slate stepped back from her own role in Big Mouth as Missy.

Kristen Bell Will No Longer Voice Molly in Apple's 'Central Park'; Will Be Recast With Black Actress

Kristen Bell will no longer be voicing Molly, a mixed-race character in Apple’s Central Park.

The series revealed the news this afternoon and also announced they’d be recasting her role with a Black actress.

In a statement from the show’s creative team, it reads that “casting of the character of Molly is an opportunity to get representation right – to cast a Black or mixed race actress and give Molly a voice that resonates with all of the nuance and experiences of the character as we’ve drawn her.”

Creator Loren Bouchard previously shared that Kristen was the best actress for the role.

“Kristen needed to be Molly; we couldn’t not make her Molly. But then we couldn’t make Molly white and we couldn’t make Kristen mixed race so we just had to go forward,” he shared earlier this year at a press event.

The move comes just after Jenny Slate stepped back from her own role in Big Mouth as Missy.

Celebrities Create 'Take Responsibility' Racism PSA, Resulting in Backlash

Stars are coming together to “take responsibility” for racism – but not everyone is impressed with their call to action.

The video, made in partnership with the NAACP, features stars like Kristen Bell, Aaron Paul and Debra Messing speaking about white privilege and taking responsibility to call out racism.

“I take responsibility for every unchecked moment, for every time it was easier to ignore than to call it out for what it was. Every not-so-funny joke. Every unfair stereotype. Every blatant injustice no matter how big or small. Every time I remained silent. Every time I explained away police brutality or turned a blind eye. I take responsibility. Black people are being slaughtered in the streets. Killed in their own homes. These are our brothers and sisters. Our friends. Our family. We are done watching them die. We are no longer bystanders; we will not be idle. Enough is enough,” they say.

“Confluential Films and the NAACP have partnered to launch the impact-oriented campaign, I Take Responsibility, where influential voices from the white community take responsibility for turning the racist tide in America. #itakeresponsibility itakeresponsibility.org,” the video’s description reads.

While some have appreciated the message of the video, others compared it to the widely criticized “Imagine” celebrity singalong video amid the pandemic, criticizing it as an empty display of performative allyship amid global protests condemning racism. Others also mocked their behavior in the videos, comparing it to an audition for a role.

Here are Black Lives Matter resources to help support the cause.

Kristen Bell Says She's Raising Her Daughters To Be Anti-Racists; Doesn't Care About Their Sexual Preferences

Kristen Bell is opening up about her hopes for her daughters, Delta and Lincoln, as they grow up and one thing she doesn’t care about is what their sexual choices are going to be.

Speaking with Channel Q in a new interview, the 39-year-old actress revealed that she really wouldn’t mind if either of them came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

“I know that I don’t care what my girls grow up to be in their career, what their sexual choices are going to be, what their love choices are going to be,” Kristen shared. “I just want to love them because we have one ride on this planet and what is the friggin’ point of spending it hating?”

She added, “I know in my bones that human beings are human beings. And that love is love, and love is never something you challenge, and that you’ve got to look for sameness if you’re to have any happiness in your life. So why would I care who loves who? That’s not my business.”

Kristen also revealed that her children will not grow up as racists and that she and husband Dax Shepard are teaching their daughters to be “morally-compassed women”.

“I will raise anti-racists. My husband and I are very opinionated; we talk a lot. Our kids are a nightmare,” she says. “They’re a nightmare because they will tell you your opinion. We constantly joke about the fact that we’re raising two girls that they’re going to be a nightmare for 18 years, but God bless when we send them into the world, they are going to be formidable, opinionated, kind, morally-compassed women, and I’m so grateful for that.”

Just recently, Kristen opened up about how she and Dax‘s co-parenting styles have changed during the pandemic.

Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Have a New Co-Parenting Method During Quarantine

Kristen Bell is opening up about how co-parenting has changed between her and husband Dax Shepard while they’re going through quarantine.

During an interview on LinkedIn’s digital show Working Together, the 38-year-old actress spoke about how she and Dax are managing and what they’re doing differently.

While Dax has been continuing to work on his podcast, Armchair Expert, Kristen has been doing the majority of homeschooling for their daughters, Delta and Lincoln.

“But what we’ve settled on is that he is always open to allowing me to ask him for help and jumping at the opportunity. So when he comes home, even if it’s just from the upstairs attic, he says, ‘Thanks for watching the kids. Thanks for doing the house,’ ” she shared.

Kristen added, “He’s not saying that to patronize me. He’s saying, ‘Thank you for allowing me to go work right now ’cause I know that you’re taking a lot of responsibility in the house, which allows me to go do my work.’ ”

There will be times when it does become too much at the moment and the two will switch responsibilities.

When that happens, Kristen will say, “‘Can you handle homeschooling?’ And he will say yes…there have been points where [I've] been nervous to ask him to take over some of the housework. These sit-down conversations in marriages happen to everyone.”

“You really have to look around you and say, ask the questions of, ‘Do you feel like I contribute enough? Do you feel like this is equitable? Do you feel like you do 50 percent and I do 50 percent?’”

Kristen continued, “I’m a working woman. I’m also trying to be a very present mother, but there is this way we talk about stay-at-home moms. Like they don’t do anything and I think that is dead now. That’s gone. That’s over. No one ever will ever think that again.”

Just recently, Kristen opened up about how exactly Dax broke all the bones in his hand.

Kristen Bell Responds to Fan Expressing Concern Over News That Her Daughter Is Still in Diapers

Kristen Bell is responding to a fan who expressed concern after the actress shared that her five-year-old daughter Delta is still wearing diapers.

The 39-year-old The Good Place actress opened up about the personal family news during the latest episode of her digital series Momsplaining.

The fan wrote, “Why would @KristenBell relate this humiliating fact about her child, along with identifying details like her name? Delta may not know about this yet, but she will: In the middle of a pandemic during her delicate formative years, her mom told the world she was still in diapers.”

The same fan also expressed concern about a photo of her seven-year-old daughter Lincoln‘s “opinion essay” in which Kristen‘s daughter wrote about “how my mommy reacts to me.”

Kristen responded, “It’s ok, I promise. The article was looking for sensation, and everyone fell for it as they so often do. They left out that shes only in diapers at night, which is pretty normal for a 5 yr old who’s tiny bladder cant take the 10 hr challenge yet :). I also dont think its humiliating if ur kid wears diapers late. Everyone is different. My 5yr old wouldn’t be embarrassed even if she was in diapers during the day! She’s confident & goofy & doesn’t see anything about her beautiful unique self something to apologize for. Xo.”

The fan and Kristen had a back and forth via Twitter that you can read below.
