Frozen's Kristen Bell Reveals How She Plans To Juggle Two Babies

Hollywood couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd are expecting baby number two early next year – and like every parent tending to the needs to two young children, they’re going to have a lot on their plate

The couple are already parents to their 20-month-old daughter Lincoln, their first child together, and plan to take time off work to enjoy the new addition to their family.


‘The baby’s going to arrive right when we wrap our shows and we are both taking off tons of time to just canoodle as a family,’ Parenthood actor Dax told PEOPLE.

On how they are going to cope with two little ones, Kristen said, ‘I think we’ll probably get through it just like everybody else does, which is we’ll put it together day by day,’says Kristen, 34.

But the couple admit they have already received good advice on how to juggle two babies.

‘We were told to pick up the oldest first if both are crying,’ Dax, 39, says.


‘It seems like a smart piece of advice,’ adds Kristen. ‘Since no one is imprinting memories of how you’re treating [Lincoln] already and the newborn doesn’t really know who’s holding them.’

‘We know the first one is great so we don’t want to ruin the first one.

‘We’d rather roll the dice on the second one,’ Dax added.
