Katie shares daughter, Vera Fay, and son Albee, with husband Adam Shapiro. Kristen shares daughters Lincoln and Delta with Shepard.
At the time, back in 2018, Bell recounted, “I said to my husband, ‘I really need you to suck this out. We could talk about it, we could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse.’ He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I’ve never been more in love in my life.”
To be clear, Dax Shepard actually sucked out the clog in his wife’s nipple and cleared the path for their child to continue breastfeeding. What a guy!!

“It works!” Bell said. Lowes responded, “I know. I’ve asked my husband and to be honest with you guys, Adam has never had to nurse out a clog but he has said numerous times, ‘I would do it.’ Kristen loved the admission, saying, “Because that’s my boy right there!”
During the coaching and revealing session, the two stars decided to show each other their breasts in private and explain their thoughts on the different issues with breastfeeding. “What makes a great breastfeeding nipple is that they look like bottle tops, you know what I mean? So, my nipples are inverted, which is an absolute nightmare,” Lowe says.
Adding, “They have to suck and pull it out, which is the most painful thing. It was worse than childbirth by a lot.”

If you have children, you know exactly what they are talking about, and issues with breastfeeding can be devastating to us that have had issues ourselves or with our partners. But, the two actresses give a few hints about helping out the situation, including a vibrating device that can be used in the area to start the process. Plus, each one introduced uses a mechanical or hand pump for times when you are not nursing. Again, highly suggest that one.
In the end, it’s great to have celebrities of this caliber discuss items that will help the rest of us navigate a very scary and serious situation with parenting. And, the bottom line, Dax Shepard is a hero to dads everywhere!
