Kristen Bell Is One Seriously Laid-Back Mom

Good news, Lincoln Bell Shephard. You may not yet be a year old, but, from the sound of it, you're going to have one bitchin' life. Just ask mama Kristen Bell, who revealed her laid-back approach to motherhood and sexuality on last night's episode of Chelsea Lately.
"She can watch whatever she wants," the Veronica Mars star told host Chelsea Handler, referring to some of her racier roles. "People ask, 'Oh, well you've done some sexy material. Do you not want her to see that?' And, I'm like, 'My guess is if she's anything like the other 5 billion people on the planet, she's gonna grow up and enjoy sex, so I'm not gonna be shocked by that.' I just think you're setting yourself up for disaster if you try to keep them little. She's gonna grow up. She has — newsflash! — a vagina, and she's gonna figure it out one day, and more power to her."
Luckily, little Lincoln is too young to realize how humiliating it is to have your mother talk about your privates on TV. If we were her, though, we'd get our nanny to record this interview to be used at a later date. What better way to hold mom to her words?
