New Parents Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Hit the Red Carpet

01/07/2015 at 09:00 PM ET

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard had a parents’ night out at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday … but was it their first post-baby red carpet?

“It’s our sixth,” Shepard, 40, cracked to E!’s Giuliana Rancic.

“No, I believe it’s our first,” Bell, 34, corrected. “I’m in a sleepy, sleepy daze, so I’m not positive where I am right now.”

The comedic couple welcomed daughter Delta on Dec. 19, and she joined big sis Lincoln, 21 months.

“It’s all Dax,” Bell said of how they settled on what to call their baby girl. “He keeps picking these awesome names.”

As for what brought them to the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, Shepard is nominated for favorite dramatic TV actor for his work on Parenthood, and Bell is up for favorite cable TV actress for House of Lies — a distinction Shepard couldn’t help but rib his wife about, joking, “Call me when you’re on cable, baby.”

And their style picks? A flowing, hot pink Monique Lhuillier frock for Bell … and “wool” for Shepard.

“I’m in wool,” he deadpanned. “My suit is by wool.”

I love that she has realistic expectations about her body after baby. She looks stunning and they both look so happy. I love them together and their daughters names are awesome.

Cute dress! But honestly People….do you think new mothers stay in bed for weeks after they have a baby?

@KW I was just thinking the same thing. Did everyone think every mom that has given birth just stay hidden from the world?? And shame on Guiliana Rancic for questioning if this is their first public appearance since given birth.

I adore them, I’m sure their daughters are gorgeous. I also really love Kristen’s dress on this photo, it is very fun but also very appropriate for a woman who gave birth a less than three weeks ago.

so cute – love her dress! People mag likes to perpetuate their own personal myth that “stepping out” without a perfect body shape is shameful, esp for a Hollywood woman, hence the ridiculous headline. Grow up, People Mag, and please start treating actresses like the successful, intelligent and creative women that they are, rather than objects whose weight is their most important trait. it’s so boring!!
