There is literally nothing unlikable about Kristen Bell. Go ahead and try to dig something up on her…I dare you. Here are some of the many reasons why we moms adore Kristen Bell.


She is truly my spirit animal. I too love a good curse word, Kristen!

She doesn’t gift her little ladies gold plated rattles for holidays. Check out this quote!

While chatting with E! News about Lincoln’s first Christmas in 2013, she was totally blunt about gift-buying. “No, I’m going to wrap up a bunch of stuff from the house because she’s still kind of an idiot,” she laughed. “I’m going to wrap up like tissue boxes and she’ll be thrilled. That’s why I’m not really going to buy anything. But I bought us matching pajamas!”


I truly think I might let her deliver any future children that I might have. You had me at booze and drugs.


We could have been neighbors!  I feel like this girl-crush was kind of meant to be…

This quote right here…

“In the age of social media, when you can edit your life in beautiful pictures, it’s important to remind moms that all of us are wearing yogurt and all of our hands smell like urine,” she continued in Redbook. “When you present an unrealistic idea of perfection to people, it’s not fair.”

She is reading my mind on marriage:

“There are days when I’m completely sick of him, and there are days when he is completely sick of me. But we’ve chosen to love one another and to be a team.”


She is an advocate for mental health. How can you not admire her open-minded, positive approach to taking care of yourself and dissolving stigma?


Her words feed your haggard mom-soul.


It’s true and she is right. We have all done something quite miraculous here. We can GROW humans!


She pays homage to us short gals with butts.

Kristen Bell is an “A” list actress, a mother, a wife and an overall  gem of a human being. She is real, raw, and funny. Who doesn’t adore this lady? The answer is no one. You had us at urine-smelling hands, Kristen.
