And The Good Place actress is not backing down from the arrangement. “Figure out how to share your closet. Figure out how to share your space. If that’s the worst thing about your life, that you have to share a bedroom with your sister, you’re going to be okay.”
Speaking on bedtime routines, the famous mama shared that the girls have solid nighttime rituals. “They have to connect patterns — life is about connecting patterns, right? So, as they got older it became we brush our teeth, we wash our hands, we put on our jammies and we read two books.”
While they may not always love sharing the same space, there is one thing the girls do agree on—their love of Harry Potter. “They love it. If we’re not listening to an audiobook, we read books.”
Kristen concluded, “And there’s usually some sort of Daddy wrestling match that happens to get out all the energy right before bed.” What do you think about Bell’s decision to have her daughters share a bedroom?
