Kristen Bell has reminded us that she is not only a beautiful woman, but a funny one, too.

During her interview for the December issue of Flare magazine, Bell graced the cover with her sultry looks, but also offered funny anecdotes about being a mother to her daughter Lincoln and her relationship with actor Dax Shepard.

Although she and her new husband both grew up in Metro Detroit, the couple actually met while in Los Angeles. "We would not have been friends in high school," she says. "He was a drug addict and he was wild, and I was very much a good girl who went to Catholic school. He is also five years older than I am, and he lived in Milford, which is a bit more drive-your-tractor-to-the-7-eleven-type Michigan, and I was closer to downtown Detroit."

The pair's first encounter occurred at a dinner party and was "not electric," she says. "And then two weeks later, I went to a Kings versus red Wings game—he was with someone I knew, and I was with my roommate, [Veronica Mars co-star] Ryan Hansen—and we ran into each other. It was on from that point."

As we all now know, things went well with the adorable duo, and they recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl. But Bell admitted that she was very nervous about adding a little one into their relationship.

"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.' I was being serious. Because I f--king love my dogs; they are my children.

"I love people the more I know them, and I didn't know her. It could've been a water bottle in my belly, that's about how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy. But within about 24 hours after she came out, my hormones reset, and they reprogrammed my feelings about her."

Bell confessed she would rather spend time with Lincoln more than anyone else, and is also very protective of her little girl.

"Dax and I realize it might make someone smile when we have sassy twitter fights, or when I tweet something that he says to me," she explains. "I'm fully aware that it's a tiny taste of our relationship. But the real day-to-day, we are extremely territorial of. I would really not like to see the aftermath of the first person who tries to take a picture of Lincoln. There are going to be a lot of stitches."

But until that time comes, the actress is enjoying her time as a new mommy and an even newer wife to her very entertaining husband.

"Can I tell you the text message I just got?" she asked. "[Dax] said, ‘Do you want noodles?' And I said, ‘Yes. Pho, please.' ‘Should I order now? I love you so much.' And I wrote, ‘Order in 20 minutes. I'll be home at 5:45.' He responds with, ‘Titty party. Bone patrol launching boner boats now.' What? I am married to an 11-year-old!"
