Expectant Kristen Bell ‘Completely Stumped’ on Name for Second Child

Kristen Bell has captivated children everywhere as the plucky Princess Anna in Disney’s hit animated musical Frozen.

But there’s one little girl who has yet to experience the magic: Bell’s daughter Lincoln, 15 months.

“She does not watch TV yet,” Bell, 33, tells PEOPLE. “She has no idea!”

Pediatricians recommend limiting TV viewing for children under 2, so Lincoln hasn’t see her mom or dad, Parenthood actor Dax Shepard, on the small screen. Once she’s old enough, though, Bell is happy Lincoln will learn Frozen’s brave lessons.

“I think it’s beautiful to show kids how great it can be to love through fear, to love someone even when they’re afraid to love themselves,” she says. “That’s a huge message I want to teach my kids: You’re allowed to be afraid, but you have to know why … and you have to try to love beyond that fear.”

The movie’s moral of sisterly love will take on an added significance soon: Bell is carrying her second child.

“So far, it’s been the exact same, and Lincoln came out like a champ,” Bell says. “Lincoln was an easy pregnancy and an easy baby, so hopefully this one will follow the same path.”

As for what to call their next bundle of joy, Bell says the expectant parents are “completely stumped” after falling in love with Lincoln’s name for a boy or girl the last time around.

“It’s hard to take focus off her and think about the second baby, even though the second baby is here and growing,” she explains.

“Lincoln’s like my television. I love being a mom and I love watching her explore the world and talk to me about things. It’s mostly babbles, but she signs, and so we can communicate. I’ve never been so interested in anything in my entire life. I have heard parents say that when you have a second child, your love doesn’t divide, it multiplies, so I have confidence that will happen.”

“And then eventually, I’ll explode,” she jokes.

No kidding — it’s been a busy year for the new mom, from Frozen-mania to the fan-funded Veronica Mars movie and her show House of Lies.  She got behind the camera for her latest role as creative director of the Lipton Iced Tea mini film series. The last of three videos premiered Wednesday and gives a hilarious spin on the theme “Win an Extra SUNday,” showing Lipton deliverymen Carl and Stu sending a harried couple off to relax as they complete their busy to-do list.

So what would Bell do during her dream extra Sunday?
“I would want to probably spend the day either at the movies or at some sort of barbecue with friends, something either creative or social, and come back to a fully organized house where everything was labeled and I knew where everything was,” she says.

Not that things aren’t fun enough inside her and Shepard’s home.

“It’s bumpin’ over here, I’m not gonna lie,” she tells PEOPLE, laughing. “There are a lot of dance parties. He’s extremely involved as a dad. We really fight over who gets the baby.”
