Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have always been real about parenting and their own relationship. From dressing up as the wrong Frozen character for Halloween to crazy bounce house road trip adventures to even the time their own kids walked in on them having sex, nothing is off limits for these two. So when Dax had to do something potentially gross to help his wife out, it's not a surprise he went along with it.
During an episode of Bell's new online parenting series Momsplaining, she talked about the struggles of breastfeeding with Scandal star and new mom Katie Lowes. During their conversation, Bell reveals that she suffered from mastitis three times while she was breastfeeding. According to the Mayo Clinic, mastitis is a painful infection of breast tissue, which can be caused by a blocked milk duct or bacteria entering the breast.
The final time she had mastitis, Bell says, happened while she and Shepard were in Atlanta, and their baby had stopped nursing. In Bell's case, it seems like she had a blocked milk duct that could have become an infection. The couple couldn't call a doctor, which caused them to go in alternate route to help take away the pain.
"So what do you do ... Kristen?" Lowes asked, before it sunk in what had to be done. "Oh. My. God."
"I said to my husband, 'I really need you to suck this out. We could talk about it, we could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse," Bell said.
Shepard went ahead and did it. "He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him," Bell detailed. "He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I've never been more in love in my life." Aaaaw.
