Speaking on Channel Q, the Good Place star explained that she and Shepard hope their two children, Delta, five, and Lincoln, seven, will grow up to become “morally-compassed women”.
“I will raise anti-racists,” Bell told the radio station before going on to explain her views on sexuality.
“I know that I don’t care what my girls grow up to be in their career, what their sexual choices are going to be, what their love choices are going to be,” she said.
“I just want to love them because we have one ride on this planet and what is the friggin’ point of spending it hating?”
The 39-year-old actor continued: “I know in my bones that human beings are human beings. And that love is love, and love is never something you challenge, and that you’ve got to look for sameness if you’re to have any happiness in your life.
“So why would I care who loves who? That’s not my business.”
Bell went on to discuss how she and Shepard are both “opinionated” and their daughters have followed suit.
“My husband and I are very opinionated; we talk a lot. Our kids are a nightmare,” she said.
“They’re a nightmare because they will tell you your opinion. We constantly joke about the fact that we’re raising two girls that they’re going to be a nightmare for 18 years, but God bless when we send them into the world, they are going to be formidable, opinionated, kind, morally-compassed women, and I’m so grateful for that.”
