Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard‘s daughters choose to support his sobriety in a variety of unique ways. Appearing on Tuesday’s premiere podcast of Say Yes! With Carla Hall, Bell reveals that Delta, 5, and Lincoln, 7, love the nonalcoholic beer Shepard consumes to stay sober.
“I'm going to get a lot of flack for this. And let me start by saying I don't care,” Bell, 40, prefaces her story. “You're allowed to give me any advice you guys want, any of these listeners.
