Kristen Bell: Pregnancy Made My Voice Deeper

Kristen Bell is reveling in motherhood.

“It is amazing to see [Dax Shepard] with her. To have something alive that is part of both of us is a really lovely feeling,” the House of Lies star told PEOPLE at the D23 Expo in Anaheim on Friday.

Bell, who told Ellen DeGeneres in May that Shepard was the “best” dad to the couple’s daughter Lincoln Bell, voices Anna in the upcoming animated film Frozen and says being pregnant changed her experience in the recording booth.

“The pregnancy did change my voice. It made it deeper,” she said. “There were more womanly tones when I did one recording while I was extremely pregnant. After I had the baby, I had to go back and re-record those lines so they matched. There was something different about my voice.”

She continued, “There was something more ‘Mommy’ about my voice and we had to fix it. I certainly didn’t intend that, and when you heard it, you couldn’t really place why it was different but it was. It was one of those hormonal things that happen, I guess.”

She’s a nutjob.

She’s not a nutjob. She’s a young woman figuring out her life in the best way she can. If you perceive that as a nutjob, too bad for you.

Nope, she’s definitely a nutjob.

Love Kristen Bell!!!

Yup, very common with pregnancy. I lose my singing voice in my last trimester. Not just for lack of breath control, but my voice changes and cracks. It’s the hormones.

And nothing nutty about it, there’s several studies that confirm that hormones do that, along with a lot of other funky stuff. Anonymous, on the other hand, total nutjob.

“Nut job”? Are you commenting on this article, if so not following what was nutty about her.

Guys, don’t feed the troll. These types are so pathetic and sadly enjoy being complete and utter a-holes to everyone…..ignore.

I remember Faith Hill saying, while pregnant, she was able to hit higher notes. Pregnancy brings about the most interesting things!

She already seems like a dude to me anyways.

Oh, meant to add, the same thing happened to my cousin. It was so weird, when she called me I almost didn’t recognize her voice!

She didn’t say every single person in the world she said every CELEBRITY.

ASD- Yes, but that still means that technically, she was saying every celebrity in the world, and that’s not very likely either. 😉

I don’t see how she comes off as a nut job but I laughed at the baby’s name. They really should drop the Bell and just call her Lincoln…although that’s kinda weird too 😀

Kristen is so cute! I absolutely adore her. She’s funny and talented, and so down to earth. Her and Dax are adorable, and I love little Lincoln Bell’s name. 🙂
