Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have a tight knit family… both in the bedroom and outside of it.
While discussing a phantom smell permeating their sleeping quarters, the couple revealed on Dax's "Armchair Expert" podcast this week that their two daughters, Lincoln, 8, and Delta, 7, still sleep in their bedroom with them.
"In our bedroom, you know, the girls sleep on the floor of our bedroom," Kristen said while talking about a terrible scent in the room. "I'm like, 'Who's farting?' All three of them are like, 'Sorry, it's me. So I go, 'OK, my family has gas, big [deal].' I wake up in the morning and I go, 'Wow, nobody's gas has dissipated, but it also smells like it's burning.'"
Kristen took steps in an attempt to make the smell go away, but little worked.
"Now, Delta, the little one, she is smell sensitive," Kristen said. "So she goes, 'You know what, I do smell it.' Lincoln and Dax can't be bothered, so Delta and I are, well, being gaslit."
Kristen and Lincoln furter investigated and may have found the source.
"I lean down and smell the mattress, Dax's corner, his feet corner of the mattress, and I almost hit the deck. I almost passed out it was so strong," Kristen said, revealing that her husband accidentally filled their OOLER mattress pad with an old protein shake, instead of water. "So I take it off, I put it in the tub, I try to drain the water out of it, that doesn't really work. Dax takes it downstairs and hooks up the power washer to it to push everything out of the tubes."
In a bit of advice, Kristen insisted, "Don't put a protein shake in your OOLER."
…And the family can now sleep well again — together.
