Even when they are talking about their children’s potential Hollywood careers, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are refreshingly relatable.

The couple – parents to Lincoln, 6, and Delta, 5 – agreed that they don’t want their daughters to become “child stars,” but in an interview with E! News about the one-year anniversary of their Hello Bello baby-care line, they admitted they are open to the idea of the girls exploring acting careers further down the road.

“Sure, when they’re adults,” Dax said. “I think acting is a great job if you can find employment.”

He also theorized why “a lot of actors” don’t want their kids to go into the family business: “I assume those actors haven’t had real jobs because they’re lousy for the most part. I roofed and washed cars and de-tasseled corn. Acting is much nicer.”

Kristen, however, wasn’t on board at first.

“I had the initial instinct to keep them away from it, but that’s simply because I think about the rejection and what the spotlight can do to your personality, but then Dax politely explained to me, ‘Well, do you enjoy being creative?’ I said yes. He said, ‘Do you enjoy being overpaid?’ I said yes. And he said, ‘Why on Earth would you not want that for our children?'”
