Kristen Bell has found an effective way to teach her daughters that it’s important to take care of their health.

In an interview with Shape, Bell said that her kids typically copies what she does so she shows them her workouts. “It’s important to me to show my children that I care about my health and fitness enough to stay committed. So when I’m in their room with them, I’ll do some squats. When they ask me what I’m doing, I’ll say I’m getting my physical fitness in. And because they copy everything I do, the next time they pick up a heavy bag they’ll say, ‘I’m getting my workout in,’” she said.

The “Bad Moms” star also said that she wants her kids to grow up with a regard for their body. “It’s a value I want to instill in my kids at an early age – that paying attention to your body is mandatory. Whether it’s putting my sunscreen on or doing push-ups, it’s not just me taking care of myself but also helping me shape my daughters,” she said.

Bell and her husband, Dax Shepard, are very hands on with their two daughters, Lincoln, 4, and Delta, 2. This is why they are also particular with the food that they eat. Last month, the “Frozen” voice actress told Redbook that she is happy to have just two daughters at the moment. “I love having girls. The truest thing in life is that girls rule, boys drool,” she joked.

Other than their food, Shepard and Bell have also been very creative when it comes to naming their kids. In 2015, the “Parenthood” alum explained why they decided to name their second child Delta. During his appearance on the “Ellen Show,” Shepard also revealed that Bell went on a 33-hour labor for Delta.

“I was reading this text out loud to Kristen. And I said, ‘Oh, Louis Steve said that what if we named her Delta? Delta! Delta Bell Shepard! That’s it!’ And that’s it,” he said.

Talking about Bell’s 33-hour labor, Shepard said, “Kristen, God bless her was in labor for 33 hours. It was incredible.” But with Lincoln, the actress was only in labor for 15 hours. “That was child’s play,” Shepard joked.
