Kristen Bell Terrified Of Childbirth, Wants Whiskey & Epidural!

What a combination!

For some, childbirth is a lovely miracle. For others, it's just down right scary. It's definitely the latter for actress Kristen Bell.

The star, who is pregnant with fiance Dax Shepard, appeared on Ellen this week (and it will air Thursday) and opened up about how she believes she'll feel on her way to the hospital come Spring.

"I feel like, when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back and I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it's over," she said to the talk show host. "I've seen the videos — and it looks terrifying!"

Promoting her upcoming film The Lifeguard at Sundance last week, the star also told Entertainment Weekly that she's not sure if she's prepared for the changes to her body and her life. "This is without question the biggest transition I'll make in my life to date."

However, one transformation she's excited about? "Reverse body dismorphia," she calls it. "I can understand what my shape is, but I see Brooke Shields," she said about her refliction in the mirror since being pregnant. "And it doesn't make a lick of sense, but it's something that the baby's giving me hormonally makes me feel really giggly and happy."

Aww, good for you!
