Kristen Bell Shows Off Baby Belly in Printed Jumpsuit

09/05/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Veronica Mars has a case to solve: are jumpsuits the latest maternity must-have?

Mom-to-be Kristen Bell stepped out in a printed one-piece from the Etro spring collection while walking the red carpet at the premiere of husband Dax Shepard‘s new movie, The Judge, during the Toronto Film Festival on Thursday.

The actress accentuated her gorgeous glow with minimal makeup, metallic strappy sandals and limited accessories.

Bell is having fun switching up her maternity style, as her bold ensemble is a far cry from the neutral navy shift dress she wore to an event in July.

Mom-to-Be Kristen Bell Stuns on the Red Carpet

07/31/2014 at 02:30 PM ET

She’s glowing!

Kristen Bell was all smiles when she stepped out on Wednesday night for the Lexus Short Film Series, presented by The Weinstein Company in Los Angeles.

And although the actress — who is expecting her second child with husband Dax Shepard — kept her baby belly under wraps, she still stunned in a navy shift dress from Monique Lhuillier and nude pumps while carrying the Edie Parker Jean clutch.

While the House of Lies and Veronica Mars star may have already perfected her pregnancy style, playing the name game hasn’t been so easy.

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.”

What’s Kristen Bell’s Secret to Balancing Fitness and Family Time?

When it comes to fitness, Kristen Bell keeps it in the family.

“My go-to workout is usually hiking,” Bell, 33, told PEOPLE at the American Express Epic EveryDay Getaway with Soul Cycle in New York on Friday.

And while the actress does a lot of hiking with friends, her cutest exercise companion is 15-month-old daughter Lincoln.

“I often will strap the baby to my chest for the hike,” Bell says. (Maybe Lincoln’s the secret behind the first-time mom’s amazing body after baby?)

With her busy work schedule, Bell notes combining fitness and family time with Lincoln and husband Dax Shepard, 39, has become an effective (and enjoyable!) solution.

“[Hiking] is easy because sometimes it doesn’t actually take me away from anything because my whole family’s coming on the hike,” Bell says.

Spinning Hans Christian Andersen’s classic The Snow Queen into a modern day story of love and triumph, Frozen will be one of the hottest animated films to hit theaters this winter.

Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, the film is filled with non-stop action, heartfelt moments and genuine characters that resonate with all.

Leading the ensemble of talented voices are celeb moms Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, who star as Anna and Elsa — Scandinavian princesses and sisters who have a few obstacles to overcome to save their relationship.

“We wanted to build complex characters that are messy like real life. I am particularly proud of Anna and Elsa. I think we went for it — I hope a lot of people can relate to their journeys and who they are,” Lee told PEOPLE.

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.
