Kristen Bell believes children should learn how to “love through fear”.
The 33-year-old Veronica Mars actress shares 16-month-old daughter Lincoln with her husband Dax Shepard and the couple are currently expecting their second child.
Kristen voices Anna in Disney’s hit animated family film Frozen and she believes the feature serves up a great lesson for young people.
“I think it’s beautiful to show kids how great it can be to love through fear, to love someone even when they’re afraid to love themselves,” she told People magazine. “That’s a huge message I want to teach my kids: You’re allowed to be afraid, but you have to know why… and you have to try to love beyond that fear.”
Kristen confesses she and Dax are “completely stumped” about what to name baby number two.
The star says she is greatly involved in Lincoln’s development and mothering the little girl occupies much of her thoughts.
“It’s hard to take focus off her and think about the second baby, even though the second baby is here and growing,” Kristen said.
“Lincoln’s like my television. I love being a mom and I love watching her explore the world and talk to me about things. It’s mostly babbles, but she signs, and so we can communicate. I’ve never been so interested in anything in my entire life. I have heard parents say that when you have a second child, your love doesn’t divide, it multiplies, so I have confidence that will happen.”
Kristen and Dax tied the knot last October after dating since 2007.
