He was texting his wife Kristen Bell’s mother with a series of eggplant emojis….Kristen told the embarrassing story on Ellen during an interview that aired on Tuesday.
Kristen explained how this happened! Kristin’s mother was coming into LA to visit, and Dax was texting Kristen and mother-in-law trying to coordinate pick up time.
“(Dax) meant to respond (with a series of smiley face emojis), but instead he replied (with a series of eggplant emojis).”
Kristen continued the conversation,
“And I was like, ‘What?’ and he shows me the phone… and, by the way, the minute you involve an eggplant emoji the whole story changes,” she laughed. “Because now it reads (changes to a sensual tone) I’ll be there at 11. Can’t wait to see you tonight.”
As Ellen and the studio audience laughed, Kristen continued: “(That was not) how the original text read, but, thankfully (my mum) doesn’t know what an eggplant emoji is.”
