Kristen Bell isn’t concerned about criticism of her parenting style.
The actress, 43, who shares daughters Delta, eight, and Lincoln, nine, with her husband, actor Dax Shepard, revealed last month that she allows her daughters to drink non-alcoholic beers, and now Kristen insists that she doesn’t worry about any criticism that has come her way.
During an August 14th appearance alongside Shepard, 48, on the Armchair Expert podcast, Bell explained: ‘What’s so cute about you to me is that you are so logical and fact-driven and evidence-based — but if people want to be angry about something, they’re going to be angry about it.
‘When they have tried to order [non-alcoholic beers] at a restaurant or something, it’s because of a very specific connection to you. Because first of all, they’re educated on addiction and what substances are and how they affect your body and how scary they are and what they can do to you,’ she said, referencing her husband’s past struggles with addiction.
Shepard launched the Armchair Expert podcast in February 2018 and co-hosts the weekly podcast with its co-creator, the actress and producer Monica Padman.

During the August 14 episode, Shepard also insisted that he won’t change his ways based on the criticism.
‘If anyone has a problem that I let my kids drink NA beer sometimes, that’s fine with me. I’m not going to change based on what anybody else says because this is our family and not your business,’ Shepard declared.
In July, Kristen admitted that she allows her daughters to drink non-alcoholic beers.
The blonde beauty — who has been married to Dax since 2013 — said on The Kelly Clarkson Show: ‘We’ve been at restaurants where she’s said, “Do you have any non-alcoholic beer?” And I’m like, maybe we just keep that for home time.
‘But then I’m sort of like, you can judge me if you want, I’m not doing anything wrong. That’s your problem,’ she said.
The former Veronica Mars star also explained how her husband would often have a bottle of non-alcoholic beer while taking care of Lincoln, their older daughter, when she was an infant.
‘[Dax is] a recovering addict, but he likes non-alcoholic beer, so he’d pop one open, he’d have [Lincoln] on his chest, and we’d walk and look at the sunset,’ Bell recalled.
‘As a baby she was pawing at it, and sometimes she’d suck on the rim of it. So I think it feels to her like something special, something daddy, something family.’
Bell’s and Shepard’s defense on their parenting style comes a few weeks after the couple claimed that they, along with their daughters and a group of close friends, were ‘kicked out’ of Boston’s Logan International Airport.

The group was stranded at the airport due to their scheduled flight being pushed back to the next day. Both Bell and Shepard humorously documented their late-night adventure on Instagram stories on their individual Instagram accounts, which included purchasing $600 worth of pillows and sheets to create makeshift beds.
The couple received huge backlash after some social media accusers accused them of lying and exaggerating the whole ordeal.
The celebrity couple also addressed the criticism on the August 14 episode of the Armchair Expert podcast, in which Shepard expressed his confusion over the angry comments.
‘The thing I got worried about when it got on the news is like, I would hate for people to think that we were upset or complaining about the experience… I just thought it was novel and funny,’ the 48-year-old shared.
