Bell Defending Daughter Della
Kristen Bell is defending her 5 yr old daughter who wears diapers. On #Momsplaining, Bell revealed that her daughter, Della is in diapers. She then received backlash for it on Twitter. A user wrote saying: “Why would @KristenBell relate this humiliating fact about her child, along with identifying details like her name? Delta may not know about this yet, but she will: In the middle of a pandemic during her delicate formative years, her mom told the world she was still in diapers.” After that, Bell came to her daughter’s defence saying: “I also don’t think it’s humiliating if ur kid wears diapers late. Everyone is different. My 5yr old wouldn’t be embarrassed even if she was in diapers during the day! She’s confident & goofy & doesn’t see anything about her beautiful unique self something to apologize for. Xo.”
However, this didn’t end here. The user writes again: “My concern was chiefly about revealing such private information about a child to the world given your reach and fame; diapers at night may be normal for a five-year-old and maybe she’ll indeed grow up to be totes whatevs about it. I just know I was conscious enough at 5.5 that I wouldn’t want that info out there without my express permission, and my mom wasn’t famous and covered by the news. So I hope Delta agreed you could reveal her private body information on the world stage. And also questioned her other daughter Lincoln’s frustration essay.
Bell replied saying: And the opinion piece is my 7 yr old, who happens to be frisky and opinionated and strong and vibrant and I encourage her to speak up when she dislikes something- & I’m proud of her for telling me she’s upset with me! I want her to feel comfortable speaking up, always. But she also apologized for what she wrote later and we both laughed about it and I told her even when she has a disagreeable opinion I’m proud she stated it- it was actually a well-structured argument(even though it was written during a tantrum!) Xoxo all love.”
Ultimately the user and Bell find common ground.
