Bell, who's due at end of spring, told the host that while she and fiancé Dax Shepard
know the sex of the baby, they want to keep it a secret for now. She did add that Shepard is only "thinking about all the off-roading he'll have in this tiny partner," which made DeGeneres guess it was a boy. Bell quickly brushed off the possible hint, saying "I think he'll force even if it's a sloth to off-road!"
When asked whether she was planning a natural childbirth, Bell told DeGeneres, "I've got nothing to prove."She continued: "I feel like when I arrive at the hospital I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back. And I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and just wake me up when it's over, because I've seen the videos and it looks terrifying."But just because Bell is a little afraid of labor, that doesn't mean she isn't loving the pregnancy."I've had a lot of really good dopamine hormones. My self-esteem has never been higher," she revealed. "When I look in the mirror, I think it's like the reverse body dysmorphia. Because I can understand what my shape is but I see Brooke Shields and it doesn't make a lick of sense but something that the baby is giving me hormonally is making me really giggly and happy."Watch the full clip below:
