Bell: Husband preferred me fuller

Kristen Bell has admitted that her husband loved her fuller pregnancy figure - telling the actress it was like being with another woman.

The 33-year-old Veronica Mars star and husband Dax Shepard, 39, an actor, became parents to a baby girl in March last year.

Kristen told US television host Conan O'Brien: "He said he likes some meat on my bones . First he phrased it as 'there is more of you to love'.

"One time he did say, 'It feels like I'm cheating on you'. And that, I think, was the ticket because he felt like he was with a completely different woman, which is pretty exciting if you're married and you can feel with someone else so he loved it," the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star said.

When Conan asked if that was creepy, she said: "It was pretty cool because I was also involved and he got a freebie that didn't hurt anybody's feelings. ..sorry if that's too progressive for everybody?"

Kristen also talked about being pregnant while filming "racy" Showtime series House Of Lies.

"My boyfriend on this season was Adam Brody and he affectionately refers to our sex scenes as our 'threesomes' because my belly was just on top", she joked.
