Kristen Bell Daughter Shares her Name With COVID Variant | 22 Words

Kristen Bell has revealed that it's a "big bummer" that her daughter shares a name with one of the COVID variants.

Bell spoke about her daughter's name coinciding with the name of a COVID variant on her podcast, We Are Supported By...

Discussing the unfortunate circumstance, the forty-one-year-old actress was asked by her co-host Monica Padman: "Can I ask you a real talk question - how do you feel about Delta's name being Delta right now?"

To which she responded: "It's a big, big bummer. But I'm really hoping that the Delta variant won't be as strong as the original COVID and people will still say corona."

But while Bell might be disappointed by the unfortunate name, it seems her daughter is not as she revealed that Delta is "impressed."

"She's 6 so she's impressed every time she sees a Delta Airlines ad or anything," she said. "She's like 'Oh my gosh, my name!' So every time she hears anyone talk about the variant, she's like 'My name!' So she's still excited about it."

Bell then went on the joke that "maybe it's a good thing" because of her daughter's "privilege."

"Maybe it's a good thing because her life's really easy because she's privileged and she's got a little charisma," she said. "She's a little ball of magic and she gets away with everything because of that, so she can either give you puppy dog eyes or make you laugh and because of that her life is too easy."

"So maybe she does need this to follow her around forever," Bell added.

This comes just a week after Bell and her husband, Dax Shepard, sparked criticism after they shared a family video on Instagram.

People accused the couple of not making their daughter wear a seatbelt as it is was not noticeable in the family video that showed Shepard and one of their daughters sat in their RV singing along to Adeles, Hello.

The couple haven't yet clarified whether or not their daughter wore a seatbelt, however, it is possible the seat belt could have been hidden from view of the camera.
