The pair have two kids, Lincoln, 7, and Delta, 5.

One rule the parents make their kids follow is only touching things with one finger. Bell explained the tactic to People.

"So if she wants to touch a vase that I know she shouldn’t, I say, ‘Oh, I want to touch it too. Let’s use one finger!’" she said.


The parents have found the brilliant tactic to be so effective for one simple reason:

“It makes them feel like they have a little bit of a choice."

7. She wasn't into Dax when they first met:

She recalled how much he talked when they first met.

She told Women's Health, "There's been a reinvention of the word geek. It means [being passionate about] anything that's under the radar or sort of frowned upon, like Comic-Con."

"It's a giant comic book convention, and I've gone for the past four years to represent the shows I've been on."

15. She believes that *Snow White* sends a bad message.


“Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask ‘Don’t you think it’s weird that Snow White didn’t ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? Or where she got the apple?’ I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?’ And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘okay, I’m doing something right,'" she explained.

“They don’t know," she said during an appearance on the Today Show.

17. She revealed she had to lock her daughter in her bedroom at night.

"My 3-year-old decided to stop sleeping about nine months ago. And every night, when we put her to bed, she turns the lights on, which annoys the 4-year-old, and she will move furniture, and she bangs on the door with different, hard toys," she explained.

"We switched the doorknob. We turned the lock on the outside."

She even admitted that she knew this would be pretty controversial.

But it's not locked for the entire night.

"But we lock it when she gets in there, and we stand outside and say, 'We love you, we will talk to you in the morning, but now, it's time for sleep.' And after about 10 minutes, she'll wind herself down. And then, before we go to bed, obviously, we unlock it."
