Kristen Bell Reveals Daughter Delta Is Officially Potty Trained Following Diaper Comments


Kristen Bell’s youngest daughter is still working on potty training. During the latest episode of “Momsplaining With Kristen Bell”, the 39-year-old actress told guests Maya Rudolph and Casey Wilson how her two daughters — Lincoln, 7, and Delta, 5 — dramatically differed when trying to ditch the diapers.


“My oldest daughter at 21 months, we merely suggested that she use the toilet in the other room. [She] never wore another diaper beyond that,” Bell said of Lincoln. “And we were lying in bed giggling, my husband and I were like, ‘Why does everyone make a big deal out of this potty training? It’s so easy. Just tell the kid to use the toilet.'”


Things changed when it came to Delta, though, with Bell revealing, “Currently, my youngest is five and a half, still in diapers.”


“It’s real relative, isn’t it?” Rudolph replied.


“Yes, because every kid is so different,” Bell agreed.


In the weeks following Bell’s comments, the “Frozen” star revealed Delta is officially out of diapers and is almost potty trained to last the night.


“You know what we have to do? We wake her up at about 11 p.m. when she’s like a zombie and put her on the toilet,” Bell told Today’s Parent over Zoom.


ET recently spoke with Bell, who shares her two daughters with husband Dax Shepard. During the chat, Bell revealed how her kids were faring amid their quarantine due to the coronavirus.


“We’re doing just art projects around the house. We have neon glow paint and we’ve been painting the rocks outside so they glow and just doing silly stuff,” Bell said. “Just reconnecting with each other and I think that’s the most valuable lesson.”


“We’ve just been doing sticker books and talking,” she added. “We’ve watched the whole ‘Harry Potter’ series. My daughters are very into ‘Harry Potter’.”


But after Bell’s “Momsplaining” comments made headlines, the actress took to Twitter to clear the air.


She revealed that her younger child is “only in diapers at night.”


Adding, “Which is pretty normal for a 5-year-old who’s tiny bladder can’t take the 10 hr challenge yet.”


In a second tweet, Bell continued, “My 5-year-old old wouldn’t be embarrassed even if she was in diapers during the day! She’s confident and goofy and doesn’t see anything about her beautiful unique self something to apologize for. Xo”
