Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are defending Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher's parenting policy on bathing their children. After the That '70s Show couple got flack for revealing they don't bathe their children until "you can see the dirt on them" in a July episode of Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, Bell and Shepard shared that their children, 8-year-old Lincoln and 6-year-old Delta's, bathing routine isn't so different. The couple told the women of The View that nightly baths are no longer a thing in their household.
"We bathed our children every single night, prior to bed is like the routine," Shepard said. "And then somehow, they just started going to sleep on their own without the routine, and by George, we had to start saying, 'Hey, when's the last time you bathed them?'"
Bell agreed, adding, "Yeah, we forget."
The 46-year-old actor then admitted, "Sometimes five, six days goes along. I mean, they don't smell."
That's where the mom of two disagreed slightly with her husband. "Well, they do sometimes," she interjected. "I'm a big fan of waiting for the stink. Once you catch a whiff, that's biology's way of letting you know you need to clean it up."
The 41-year-old Frozen star continued, "There's a red flag. Because honestly, it's just bacteria. And once you get the bacteria, you gotta be like, 'Get in the tub or the shower.' So I don't hate what they're doing. I wait for the stink."
"I walk in to check on them at 9:30 and both of them are drinking an O'Doul's on their Zooms," Bell said. "They're both just sipping their Doulies. And I'm like, 'What must these other parents and teachers think of me?'"
