Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard got kicked out of the airport — and no, not for letting their kids drink non-alcoholic beers.
The celebrity couple shared that they spent $600 buying pillows and blankets to help their family crash after flight delays at Boston’s Logan International Airport. However, they were evicted from the airport even though it was open 24 hours a day.
Bell said Wednesday in a now-defunct Instagram Story that her husband and their two children, Lincoln, 10, and Delta, 8, were “stranded at Boston Airport” after hours of delays. And Shepard Posted that the flight was “postponed to the next day in its entirety” after a seven-hour delay; and that there were “ZERO” hotel vacancies in the greater Boston area.
In a video showing the famous family improvising by setting up a makeshift “bedroom” on the airport floor, the “Idiocracy” star jokes with his wife that he spent $350 on sheets and neck pillows: “But then you gone and you spend a little more!”
She admitted to spending “$253 on linens.”
“So we’re at $600, we could have stayed at a really nice hotel, but they’re all taken,” Shepard added, before his wife joked that the night at the Boston airport cost her $600.
But that wasn’t the point. The “Armchair Expert” podcast host admitted he only treated himself to one toothbrush for the whole family, which saved the family a whopping $7.50 (times three) after dumping all the dough on pillows and distributed sheets.
On the Frozen star’s now-defunct Instagram Story, she said they were biding their time with card games like Uno and Spades before crafting their sleeping quarters. Then airport officials came to break up the slumber party.
Bell shared an update on this after They had taken their sleeping pills and were “kicked out” from the airport.
“Luckily we found friends of friends who lent us their attics and took us in at 1am!!!!!!” Bell said on her Instagram Story. “And then the next morning we went on a hike with lots of dogs and it was heaven!”
Now, Bell recently admitted: “The Kelly Clarkson Show” that she allows her children to enjoy non-alcoholic beer, something they have shared with their father (who is a recovering addict) since childhood.
While it’s unclear if kids sipping non-alcoholic beers at an airport slumber party had anything to do with the family getting kicked out, it’s more likely that Boston Logan — delay or not — has a delay politics It states: “Travellers are not permitted to wait or sleep on airside after security checkpoints have closed for the night.”
