Sloth Lover Kristen Bell on Daughter Lincoln: ‘She’s Close’ to Being Cuter Than a Sloth

By: Peggy Truong / May 31, 2013

It’s no secret that Kristen Bell gets weak in the knees when anyone mentions anything about sloths.

So it was only natural that when the new mom paid a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen DeGeneres brought up the topic of the clawed mammal.

When asked about how motherhood was (Bell gave birth to a daughter named Lincoln in March), the actress said, “It’s actually better than I expected. It’s pretty wonderful . . . it’s a lot of fun.”

“Better than a sloth?” DeGeneres probed.

“Is she watching? Is she here? I’m sure it’s better than a sloth,” said Bell.

The 32-year-old star also explained why she and longtime love Dax Shepard haven’t shared any photos of their baby girl.

“We’re not quite positive that she wants to be a public figure yet so we’re going to leave that up to her and if she wants to she can do a bunch of selfies. Who cares?” she said.

During the episode, airing Monday, DeGeneres also showed photos of sloths (baby sloths, sleeping sloths, hanging sloths, a bucket of baby sloths), before asking if Bell’s baby was cuter.

Forget about the Veronica Mars movie, when is Kristen Bell going to make a feature about/with sloths?
