From Actress to Entrepreneur: Kristen Bell’s New Baby Line

Kristen Bell, founder of Hello Bello

Kristen Bell is known for her strong acting chops, but this blond beauty has also made her way into the business world. As of last month, Bell has launched an affordable plant-based baby line called Hello Bello. To follow her journey towards entrepreneurship, let’s start at the beginning. Here is everything you need to know about Kristen Bell.
Kristen was born and raised in Huntington Woods, Michigan. After leaving New York University in 2001, the movie star began her professional acting career on Broadway playing the role of Becky Thatcher in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. In 2008 she transitioned to the big screen after landing the title role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. From there, she went on to achieve success on big and the small screen productions with roles like Eleanor Shellstrop on the acclaimed NBC comedy series The Good Place and the voice of Elsa in Frozen.

After working with fellow movie star Dax Shephard multiple times in films such as When in Rome and Hit and Run, the two tied the knot in 2013. According to the December 2013 issue of Flare magazine, the pair met through mutual friends at a birthday dinner party in 2007. While she told the magazine that there wasn’t initially a spark, their romance slowly blossomed, and they eventually had two children together named Lincoln and Delta. In addition to being her husband and the father of her children, Dax went on to become her business partner. On February 25, 2019, the couple launched a baby line called Hello Bello.

Kristen Bell’s new baby line is part of an exclusive partnership with Walmart, but you can also buy products from the brand’s online store. According to Kristen, the brand’s goal is to produce high-quality baby products that everyone can afford.

"A lot of people have to choose what’s good for their baby or what’s good for their budget, and we just generally didn’t think that’s fair," Bell, 38, told the Today show.

Products in Kristen Bell’s new baby line range from $1.88 to $23.94 and are made with plant-based ingredients. The 10-product line includes printed diapers, shampoo, baby wipes, sunscreen, and laundry detergent.

Whether it is on-screen or behind the scenes of another business venture, we can’t wait to see what the multi-talented Kristen Bell does next.
