When it comes to famous families in Hollywood, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard like to keep things low-key. So much so, the A-listers have never shared a photo of their children’s faces since welcoming daughters Lincoln in 2013 and Delta in 2014.
Even without seeing their sure-to-be adorable mugs, the girls are still featured quite a bit on social media. More often than not, the Good Place actress will simply place an emoji over Lincoln and Delta’s faces. Most recently, Kristen gave fans a glimpse inside the couple’s lives as parents as they celebrated Father’s Day 2020 in June.

“You have made all of our dreams come true. You are the most patient, affectionate, enthusiastic, and funniest dad we could imagine,” the Veronica Mars alum wrote on Instagram. “We love you so very much, @DaxShepard.”
While the acting pair’s sweet smiles were on full display, Kristen placed a heart sticker over each of her kiddo’s faces. As much as fans would love to gush over what her little ones look like, sharing vulnerable mommy moments is just as important. Unfortunately, not everyone sees it that way, as Kristen and Dax have faced backlash in the past for keeping their children’s identities so private.
In February 2020, Kristen appeared in a new commercial for Hello Bello, a plant-based baby products company, alongside a toddler. After sharing the video on social media, followers began to question her methods. “So your kids deserve privacy but you don’t mind exploiting other people’s children for monetary gain?” one person wrote.
“Well, there’s a big difference. If [Dax and I] expose our kids’ faces, there is a real threat of them getting stalked, or of a stranger coming up to them and knowing their name,” Kristen replied. “It’s a safety thing … I don’t fault other parents for showing their kids when they don’t have the same safety concerns.”
It looks like fans will have to patiently wait to see if the doting mom starts to feel more comfortable sharing pics of her kids as Lincoln and Delta get older. In the meantime, listening to Kristen fawn over her daughters is good enough, especially when it comes to her choice to participate in the Veronica Mars reboot.
“When I decided to take on [this role], I was like, ‘You know what, now that I went back and reread the scripts and watched the show, I want my girls to have this character in their life,’” she previously told Access Hollywood. “I made the choice as a mom, now — which was really hard — to go, ‘I’m gonna miss a couple of bedtimes for a couple of months because I want this character to exist in the world.’ I want her to be a zeitgeist. I want girls to reference her, I want girls to feel like her.”
We can’t wait to continue to watch Lincoln and Delta grow up!
