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.

This October, there’s lots to celebrate in the Bell-Shepard household!

Earlier in the month, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard tied the knot following a three-year engagement, with the House of Lies actress telling PEOPLE, “I can officially call him my husband, which is pretty awesome.”

But the partying is set to continue with Halloween just around the corner, particularly as it will be daughter Lincoln‘s first.

“This has been a major topic of discussion because we don’t want to blow it,” Bell tells PEOPLE of how her family will coordinate costumes.

“We have friends that have really, really just nailed their costumes with their kids in the past, so we’re feeling a bit of pressure … There’s a lot of things being thrown out in the household and I haven’t yet decided on one.”

“I’m proud to sit out the baby weight rat race,” new mom Kristen Bell Tweeted Friday — and the House of Lies star proves it with her September Redbook cover.

In the story, which features photos taken 11 weeks after her daughter Lincoln was born in March, Bell says that she’s 15 lbs. heavier than her pre-pregnancy weight, and she’s okay with that.

“I’m going to continue working out and see where it goes,” the actress, 33, explains.

“I’d like to get back down to where I was before the baby … But if this is where my body wants to be, so be it. I’m not going to make myself miserable for the rest of my life trying to get back to where I was before.”

Kristen Bell may be a first-time mom, but she’s a second-time host at this year’s CMT Music Awards.

Prior to the show’s start, a trim Bell revealed the new mom-friendly way she prepares for a big event.

“My new backstage beauty routine #pumpit #pumppumpitup #CMTAwards,” she Tweeted, sharing a photo of her Medela Freestyle breast milk pump.

Bell and her fiancé Dax Shepard welcomed daughter Lincoln in late March.

Kristen Bell: Why Dax Shepard Is the ‘Best’ Dad

05/31/2013 at 05:00 PM ET

Kristen Bell has one happy household.

The House of Lies star was happy to chat about her 9-week-old daughter Lincoln as well as her baby’s doting daddy, Bell’s fiancé, Dax Shepard.

“[Motherhood is] actually better than I expected,” Bell, 32, says on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Monday. “It’s pretty wonderful, yeah. It’s a lot of fun.”

But parenting wouldn’t be what it is without the help of Bell’s other half.

Shepard, who stars on Parenthood, is “the best,” she shares. “It’s like he’s just made a new best friend. He talks to her all the time and sings to her all day. It’s wonderful.”

Asked about their unusual choice for their baby girl, “it’s always been Dax’s favorite name,” Bell explains. She jokingly adds, “He is substantially bigger than I am so I lost.”

Mid-conversation, Bell was thrown for a loop when pressured by the talk show host to answer whether her baby is as cute as her most-favored folivore.

“She’s close,” Bell said, as numerous photos of adorable little sloths hit the screen after the actress declined to share a photo of her own infant. “There’s nothing cuter than a baby sloth.”
