Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s eldest daughter is only five but they decided it was time to have “the talk” with her after she asked a question many parents dread answering.

The couple explained the situation during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” this week, where they promoted their new line of plant-based baby products.

Bell said her daughter, Lincoln, asked, “Where do babies come from?” And the parents instantly decided it was time for “real talk.”

Shepard told host Ellen DeGeneres:

“We went through the anatomy. Penis, vagina, ovum, sperm. We’re laying it all out. We get right to the action.”

Bell cut in, adding:

“Right to the good part. And she’s like (irritated) ‘Okay, I gotta go outside.’ And she just left.”

Shepard added:

“Yeah, she bailed. She knows all the organs but when it got to the actual nuts and bolts of the operation…”

The mom concluded, “We bored her to death.”

The correct age to start having the “birds and bees” talk with children varies from expert to expert, but most seem to agree that it’s best to start young.

Louanne Cole Weston, Ph.D., told WebMD that you should start incorporating the proper names for private parts into their vocabulary when they’re still developing their language skills.

And when they ask honest questions, give honest answers. She wrote:

If you talk about sexual matters from the beginning of a child’s use of language, there never needs to be the big “birds and bees talk.”

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states, “It’s never too early to start talking to children about their bodies.”

But at the end of the day, it’s up to parents to decide what age they think is best.

    But if they’re “born” gay… then you don’t have to have the “talk”.
    Urban legend and quack psygcologists have told us that people can be born gay. Odd how things like that don’t hold up when you apply normal standards.

    Exactly like the lies the Left & the abortion industry want everyone to believe so they can justify the mass murder of innocent children in the womb. So, what are you supposed to do when their “it’s not a baby” lie falls apart and a failed abortion produces an actual child? According to the MAJORITY of our cuurent CONGRESS, get rid of it! That’s right…EXECUTE it! Forget the FACT that this HUMAN BEING is an American citizen and “We hold these TRUTHS to be self-evident that ALL MEN are CREATED EQUAL, that they are ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR with certain UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, that among these are the RIGHT TO LIFE…” These “minor” details be damned! Just get rid of it! WAKE UP, AMERICA! STOP FALLING FOR THE LIES! STOP THE INFANTICIDE! SAVE THE BABIES & VOTE THEM OUT!! #ABOLISHROEVWADE!
