Kristen Bell's baby confession

KRISTEN Bell once pretended to be asleep when her baby woke up early.

The 36-year-old actress has daughters Lincoln, three, and Delta, 19 months with husband Dax Shepard and revealed that when they were all staying in a hotel room together, she, Dax and Lincoln all faked being asleep when Delta woke up.

She told PEOPLE: "[My baby] woke up at 6 in the morning and my husband, the toddler and I all pretended to be asleep for probably 30 or 40 minutes.

"And finally, I hear the baby reaching towards my purse and going, 'Mama, mama ... bar, please, please. Bar.'

"I got up, handed her the Greens Bar - it's a healthy bar she can eat - I opened it up, gave it to her in the crib and went back to bed. And we all woke up around 8."

Kristen's 'Bad Moms' co-star Christina Applegate shared her own recent experience when she allowed her daughter Sadie, five, to have ice-cream for breakfast.

She said: "A few days ago, I was so tired - I'd been sick for like three months. I just said, 'Yeah, can you reach it?'

"None of these things are bad. We're in survival mode half the time."

However, Christina, 44, who is married to Martyn LeNoble, recently revealed that her daughter is now her "number one priority" after missing out on some key moments in her development due to her role on TV series 'Up All Night'.

She said: "Once I had my daughter, I was doing a show six months later ... which I did for two years and I didn't see her, that was something that wasn't right to me, so I had to make a decision truly conscious about how I was a mother before anything else. I took a year-and-a-half off and was with her. In between jobs I spend the majority of my time with my daughter so she knows I'm there. Plus, I enjoy doing things with her so much, she is my number one priority, nothing else is as significant as she is."

'Bad Moms' also stars Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, Jada Pinkett Smith and Annie Mumolo.
