Kristen Bell Wows on the Red Carpet – After a Small Shoe Snafu

10/02/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Kristen Bell has pregnancy problems!

Although the mom-to-be looked stunning in a fitted Dsquared2 black halter dress while at the premiere of her husband Dax Shepard‘s new movie, The Judge, it took a last-minute joint effort to pull it all off.

While on their way to the red carpet in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the actress, 34, experienced a bit of a shoe snafu when her burgeoning belly made it difficult to finish dressing.

Luckily for Bell, Shepard, 39, was happy to step in as her stylist.

“The bad news: [you] can no longer reach your feet,” she Tweeted, along with a photo of the actor coming to her rescue. “The good news: [you] have a nice hubby who’ll help put on your shoes.”

In a move that would make Veronica Mars proud, Kristen Bell has cracked the case of the baby name game.

She and husband Dax Shepard were “completely stumped” about what to call their second child earlier this summer, but the expectant parents have now solved the mystery.

“We had a little bit of a breakthrough. We’ve settled on one, thankfully,” Bell, 34, tells PEOPLE. “It’s a lot of pressure, especially because we felt ‘Lincoln’ was so perfect.”

As for when almost 18-month-old daughter Lincoln‘s little brother or sister is due, she says, “Hopefully sometime soon!”

And what does she think of Shepard’s new bell-shaped tattoo on his wedding finger?

“It was surprising. He just came home with a Band-Aid on his finger one day. Those are the kinds of surprises I get at home,” she jokes. “And people wonder why I keep letting him knock me up.”

Expectant Kristen Bell ‘Completely Stumped’ on Name for Second Child

Kristen Bell has captivated children everywhere as the plucky Princess Anna in Disney’s hit animated musical Frozen.

But there’s one little girl who has yet to experience the magic: Bell’s daughter Lincoln, 15 months.

“She does not watch TV yet,” Bell, 33, tells PEOPLE. “She has no idea!”

Pediatricians recommend limiting TV viewing for children under 2, so Lincoln hasn’t see her mom or dad, Parenthood actor Dax Shepard, on the small screen. Once she’s old enough, though, Bell is happy Lincoln will learn Frozen’s brave lessons.

“I think it’s beautiful to show kids how great it can be to love through fear, to love someone even when they’re afraid to love themselves,” she says. “That’s a huge message I want to teach my kids: You’re allowed to be afraid, but you have to know why … and you have to try to love beyond that fear.”

The movie’s moral of sisterly love will take on an added significance soon: Bell is carrying her second child.

There’s another baby on the way for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell.

“I can confirm that Kristen and Dax are expecting their second child and a sibling for Lincoln,” a rep confirms to PEOPLE. “The whole family is beyond excited.”

The House of Lies and Veronica Mars star told PEOPLE last week how much she’s enjoying her daughter, now 15 months.

“She’s delicious. It’s such a fun age,” Bell, 33, says. “I feel like having a toddler is exhausting and extremely rewarding — and far more rewarding than exhausting.”

Kristen Bell wasn’t exactly filled with motherly instincts while she was expecting daughter Lincoln.

“I love people the more I know them, and I didn’t know her. It could have been a water bottle in my belly, that’s how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy,” she tells Flare in their December cover story.

The actress, 33, admits that she worried about her lack of feelings and told her now-husband, Parenthood star Dax Shepherd, of her fears.

“I kept saying to him in all sincerity during my pregnancy, ‘I just don’t know how I’m going to like her as much as I like the dogs.'”

The couple have two pups, Lola and Mr. Shakes.

Dax Shepard has only been a dad for four months, but he seems to already have mastered parenting.

“I got the secret weapons — the Five S’s: swaddling, sideways, swaying, shushing and sucking,” the actor, who utilizes Dr. Harvey Karp’s method, told reporters at NBC’s Press Tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

Shepard, whose fiancée Kristen Bell gave birth to daughter Lincoln in March, says parenthood has been “every cliché I’ve ever heard.”

“When I look at her, it’s like when I was in 7th grade and fell in love for the first time, where it’s debilitating,” says Shepard, 38. “That’s available 24/7 if I want, which is amazing.”
