There’s nothing like a crisp, nonalcoholic beer to get through the school day.
Kristen Bell revealed that she caught her daughters, Lincoln, 7, and Delta, 5, drinking their dad Dax Shepard’s O’Doul’s while taking a break from remote learning.
“They have 15-minute breaks where they’re allowed to jump around and grab a snack and wiggle it out,” the “Good Place” alum, 40, explained on Tuesday’s episode of the “Say Yes! With Carla Hall” podcast. “I walk in to check on them at 9:30 and both of them are drinking an O’Doul’s on their Zooms. They’re both just sipping their Doulies.
“And I’m like, ‘What must these other parents and teachers think of me?’”
After a moment of self-doubt, the “Veronica Mars” star realized she doesn’t care what anybody else thinks of her or her parenting skills.
“You’re welcome to tell me I’m a terrible parent. I don’t care,” she said. “I’m a great parent, I think. I’m learning every day.”
In fact, she said her daughters drinking O’Doul’s, which contains less than 0.5 percent alcohol by volume, is an important lesson, as they’re learning about Shepard’s “sobriety and the importance of it and why Daddy can’t drink.”
Shepard, 45, has been sober for 16 years as of this month.
“When we first had our child and … we’d walk around the neighborhood, he’d pop a nonalcoholic beer in his hand and the baby would paw at it and put the rim in her mouth,” Bell recalled. “It’s a sentimental thing for my girls.”
