Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are expecting their second child together
Kristen, 33, and Dax, 39, welcomed daughter Lincoln in March 2013. Just last week, the actress spoke to People about how much she enjoys being a mummy to her little girl.
"She's delicious. It's such a fun age," Kristen said. "I feel like having a toddler is exhausting and extremely rewarding – and far more rewarding than exhausting."
Kristen has made no secret of her desire to give Lincoln a little brother or sister. "I had two older sisters and I think the relationship between siblings is so special. You're able to share that 'We're all in this together' feeling.

"Because growing up is, like, the worst," she added. "Your body hurts and you can't communicate with anyone, and you think you know stuff before you know it, and you parents are idiots, and they're embarrassing!"
Fans shouldn't expect to see any pictures of Lincoln or her baby sibling anytime soon. The couple, who married in October after a three-year engagement, have decided to keep pictures of their children private.
"Our daughter is not a public figure," Kristen has explained. "We chose to be, we volunteered to be in this business and she did not.
"I feel it's very important and my number one job as a mother is to protect what her interests might be.
"She might grow up to be very shy and she might not want her picture anywhere. This lifestyle might make her very uncomfortable and I think it's my duty to protect that."
