“Like, with my job, when I get interviewed and people say, like, ‘How do you balance it all?'”

“I don’t think anyone has ever asked my husband [Dax Shepard] that question,” she shared with guest star La Guardia Cross.

“‘How do you balance it all, working and being a dad?'” Bell continued on.

“Everything’s geared towards moms though. That’s the thing. Just the idea that you have to fit into these gendered boxes, like, my husband is in love with cars. He loves them. He loves them more than me. But, I know some stuff about cars.” 

The mother of two also brought attention to yet another double standard in parenting: the lack of changing stations in men’s bathrooms.

“You know, there are some things that a man can do that a woman can’t. But, there are also a lot of things that a woman can do that a man can’t,” she said.

“Like, grow a fetus inside of their body, provide sustenance through their nipples, do a middle split. And in this room, the men’s room, dads can’t change a baby’s diaper.” 

“Look, equal is equal. Love is love,” Bell concluded. “It’s math and a men’s room needs a changing station, period. That reminds me of another thing men can’t do.”
