Kristen Bell: I need whiskey for labour

Kristen Bell wants a "glass of whiskey" before she gives birth.

The actress announced that she is expecting her first child with fiancé actor Dax Shepard in November last year and is terrified about going into labour. Kristen joked that she has got nothing to prove when it comes to natural child birth.

"I feel like, when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back and I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat," she joked to TV host Ellen DeGeneres. "And wake me up when it's over because I've seen the videos - and it looks terrifying."

The funny star is in no rush to give birth any time soon. Kristen is feeling fantastic and as her pregnancy develops she is enjoying the experience more and more.

"[My] self-esteem has never been higher," Kristen explained."I look in the mirror and I think it's the reverse body dysmorphia, because I can understand what my shape is, but I see Brooke Shields. And it doesn't make a lick of sense, but it's something that the baby's giving me hormonally makes me feel really giggly and happy."

The House of Lies actress also let slip a hint that the baby could be a boy. In the interview with Ellen that airs tomorrow, Kristen told how car-fanatic Dax is excited about cruising around with their new arrival.

"[He's excited about] all the off-roading he'll have in this tiny partner," she revealed."[Am I expecting a son?] Maybe. Do you have to be a boy to off-road? Absolutely not! I think he's going to force [the baby], even if it's a sloth, to off-road."
