Mummy away, Daddy will play! At least, that’s what Dax Shepard did when he sneakily bought a mini electric motorcycle for his 4-year-old daughter, Lincoln, when wife Kristen Bell was away in Florida recently. Shocked? Not this cool mama.
Loved up actors Kristen Bell and her hubby Dax Shepard don’t spend much time away from each other or their two daughters (Lincoln aged 4 and Delta, 2). But thanks to Hurricane Irma, the Bad Moms star was absent longer than usual recently, something her funny hubby decided to use to his advantage.
Rev it up
Dax Shepard revealed last week on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that while Kristen was stuck in a Florida hotel waiting out the hurricane, he decided to give his eldest daughter, Lincoln, a mini electric motorcycle. Not very discreet, upon returning, the mother of two swiftly uncovered the gift along with the box it came in which stated it was meant for teenagers.
“None of it’s shocking”
Enough to make any mum freak out, Kristen obviously knows her husband well and luckily took it all in her stride.
“Mommy went out of town for a few weeks to shoot in Florida and they were supposed to come with me and because of the hurricane, all the flights were canceled, and they could not get in pre-hurricane,” the actress told E! News in an interview to promote her flick Bad Moms Christmas.
“And then the airports were also shut down post-hurricane. So we spent like three weeks apart, which is the longest we’ve ever been apart. And while I was out of town, Daddy bought Lincoln an electric motorcycle. None of it’s shocking.”
It’s in the genes
Dax is a long time fan of motorbikes and other adrenaline inducing stuff, so it’s only natural that his daughters might take after him on the action front. And it appears that this is something Kristen has accepted without a fight.
“My expectations are correct—that’s why I’m not like, freaking out, and the tag says ’13 and over,’ and she’s four. But, if I’m being very honest, she’s killing it,” she told E! News.
A cool rider
Chuffed with his gift giving abilities, the CHIPS actor also shared videos with Ellen of his plucky 4-year-old riding the motorbike – full face helmet firmly affixed. Kristen and her co-star, Mila Kunis (also a mum of two), surprisingly both weren’t too fazed.
“I would expect nothing less than your kids to be like crazy cross-bike racing by like seven,” said Mila.
Kristen wholeheartedly agreed adding: “They’re gonna be BMX champions for sure.”
Talk about chilled! We think this mama handled the situation extremely well. Would you have reacted the same?
