Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have shown off their relatable side after being interrupted by one of their children during an interview.

The couple, who share daughters Lincoln, eight, and Delta, six, were speaking with Today’s Al Roker from home when they had to pause the conversation because of a knock at the door.

“One of them is knocking at the door,” Shepard could be heard telling Roker after the gentle knocking, while Bell added: “A child at the door.”

As Shepard then explained that one of their daughters was knocking “even though they know they know they can’t come up here,” Bell informed her husband that she would handle the interruption, before both parents got up from their seats to speak with their daughter.

“Hold on,” Bell told Roker, prompting the Today host to laugh at the couple’s disappearance.

When the Frozen star returned, she informed Roker that she had told her daughter: “We’re on TV right now, we’re on the news,” to which the child had simply replied: “OK.”

Bell then revealed the likely cause of the interruption, telling Roker that she is confident the disturbance was because it is her daughter’s doll’s birthday.

“This, I’m sure, is about the doll’s birthday,” the mother-of-two, who did not identify which daughter had interrupted, said as she sat back down in front of the camera. “We found out yesterday that it’s her doll’s birthday, and now we have to order a cake. She’s taking it very seriously.”

The relatable interruption of the couple’s work comes after Bell previously opened up about the realities of parenting, telling Redbook that she thinks it’s important to be transparent, especially in the age of social media.

“In the age of social media, when you can edit your life in beautiful pictures, it’s important to remind moms that all of us are wearing yogurt and all of our hands smell like urine,” she said, adding: “When you present an unrealistic idea of perfection to people, it’s not fair.”
