Dax: I need meds if Kristen Bell gives birth again
Kristen Bell’s husband Dax Shepard has opened up about how terrifying it was to watch her insides “flowing over” during her c-section.
The 34-year-old actress and her actor beau Dax Shepard welcomed their second child, a baby girl named Delta Bell Shepard, on December 19. And Dax has opened up about the horror he felt as he watched Kristen go through a cesarean, which he jokingly described as an “autopsy”.
“After seeing this autopsy, I would rather see a school bus drive out of her vagina. It isn’t any worse than seeing your partner flowing over. Guys, I need medication if this happens again,” he revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Going into a rather graphic explanation of Kristen’s birth, 40-year-old Dax admitted he was terrified. Laughing that he thinks he too deserved an epidural, he argued it’s stressful for fathers.
“I had been warned by a lot of different gentlemen, and even my own mother, that said, ‘You might not want to watch the baby come out. [It’s] maybe not the greatest idea.’ What they did not warn me about was the c-section, which is way worse,” he told Ellen.
“So there’s a sheet and then they go, ‘The baby’s here!’ Then you peek around the sheet and they’re lifting out the baby, but then you notice your wife is completely disassembled. I can see inside of her. I was like, ‘It’s a girl! Your liver’s out, I think. And those are definitely your intestines. And she has… are you all right!? Oh my God, put her back together correctly.’”
But the birth went well and Kristen and Dax welcomed a healthy little sister for their daughter Lincoln, who is almost two. The happy father confirmed his wife is recovering easily.
“[Kristen]’s a super healer because she never smoked, never drank. Eats perfect. She’s like Wolverine! You cut her and as the knife’s going through, it’s sealing. If those kids came out of me, I don’t know what they’d look like. I’d still be in the hospital probably,” he smiled.
