Kristen Bell is pregnant again.
The Veronica Mars movie actress is expecting her second child with her husband, Dax Shepard.
“I can confirm that Kristen and Dax are expecting their second child and a sibling for Lincoln,” a rep tells Entertainment Tonight. “The whole family is beyond excited.” This baby joins their daughter Lincoln, nearly 15-months-old.
Kristen recently spoke about her daughter, “I love [motherhood]! She’s absolutely intoxicating.” She continues, “I want to be very hands on. I want to cook for my family and feel present for them. I’m always missing her when I’m not there.”
“She’s delicious. It’s such a fun age,” the 33-year-old revealed of her daughter. “I feel like having a toddler is exhausting and extremely rewarding — and far more rewarding than exhausting.”
Kristen also shares that Dax is loving fatherhood, “It’s like he’s just made a new best friend [in daughter Lincoln]. He just talks to her all the time and sings to her all day. It’s wonderful.”
Shortly after Lincoln’s birth, the couple went on a media offensive and demanded popular blogs including Just Jared and PEOPLE.com stop publishing photos of celebrithy children. At the time, the sites agreed although now the heat is off the photos seem as popular as ever.
Kristen explained why the protest, and the reason Lincoln and her sibling will remain out of the public eye.
“Our daughter is not a public figure. We chose to be, we volunteered to be in this business and she did not,” she said. “I feel it’s very important and my number one job as a mother 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.”
