Kristen Bell Reveals Insane Breastfeeding Experience With Hubby

Celebs February 6, 2018 By Hugo

Kristen Bell is many things. She's a great actress. Utterly gorgeous. Funny as hell. We could go on, but we won't because trumping all these things is motherhood, something Bell experienced when she gave birth in 2013 and 2014. However, it seems it wasn't just her newborn children who relied on her breastmilk...

In one of the most bizarre celebrity stories of the year, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star admitted in episode four of her web series, Momsplaining - a show where the actress talks about motherhood with new and expecting mothers - that her husband was on the receiving end of some of her milk.

"It is a little bit strange to go from an autonomous woman to all of a sudden being a food truck," Bell told her guest Katie Lowes, star of the tv series Scandal. "Isn't it crazy how much of your nipple and your boob has to go in their mouth?"

"They're biting a burger," Lowes wittily responded.

Yes, it was all going smoothly, with two mothers talking about the complications that arise from breastfeeding. However, things soon took a weird turn.

Bell then revealed that after one of her daughters stopped feeding, she had mastitis, an excess build-up of milk in the breast duct that can turn infectious. 

"I was in Atlanta," Bell added. "We couldn't call a doctor, and this was right after the baby stopped nursing."

Seemingly knowing where Bell was going with the story, Lowes exclaimed, "So what do you do... Kristen? Oh. My. God."

Evidently, Bell isn't someone to mince her words, as she revealed, "I said to my husband, 'I really need you to suck this out. We could talk about it, we could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse. He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I've never been more in love. In my life."

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why there's no business quite like show business.
