Kristen Bell took time to connect with baby

Kristen Bell admits it took her a while to develop a bond with her baby.

The 'Veronica Mars' star gave birth to her first child, Lincoln, in March, with her husband Dax Shepard, and she only began to feel a close connection with her daughter the day after she was born.

The 33-year-old actress told the December issue of Flare magazine: "I kept saying to Dax 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."

She added: "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."

The blonde beauty married Dax in a low-key ceremony that cost $142 in Beverly Hills last month, after six years of dating, and they help keep each other grounded.

She said: "Our main rule is: Check your ego at the door, and be aware of when the other person is spinning out. As artists, everything is vanity and narcissism driven: my career, the strategy behind it, the next level I want to hit, my photo shoot, how I was in my acting scene, my premiere. So we try to do a really good job of being human beings in the rest of our life."
