“We love her enough to do something we don’t really want to do, which is, have a second,” the proud papa explained, before adding, "We travel a lot. It's not fair to bring this little human everywhere we go and deal with only adults. We owe it to her to give her a playmate that travels with us."

Although the sibling dynamics were tricky at first, Shepard knows he and the The Good Place actress made the right call on expanding their brood. "For a minute that was difficult, 'cause when you're 5 and the baby's 3, that's no fun," he said. "But I will say the corner we've turned is now the party. Not only do they party together, they're united against us, which I love."

"And I'm like, 'That's right. That's your role. You guys gang up and kill me. It's you two against the world like that,'" he joked about his daughters' relationship.

Since completing their family, both Shepard and Bell have basked in being a family-of-four. In fact, the Frozen star exclusively told OK! they're committed to prioritizing time together over anything.

"My favorite thing to do with them is bedtime. Their brains are really open right before bed, and so my husband [Shepard] and I make a commitment to lay with them for a half hour each night — and I know that sounds like a lot of time, but we prioritize it," Bell revealed.

"We start early and hear about their day," she continued. "We talk about their roses, butt and thorn, like what is the best part of your day, what you could improve on and what you're looking forward to. It's probably the happiest moment of my day."
