Dax Shepard has been a welcome part of Kristen Bell's family, even before their marriage in 2013.
But Bell, during her appearance on The Ellen Show on Monday, recalled a time that Shepard accidentally turned a conversation between himself and her mother into a flirtatious one.
'The minute you involve an EGGPLANT EMOJI, the whole thing changes,' emphasized Kristen to the talk show audience.
Whoops! During her sit-down interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Monday, Kristen Bell (right) recalled a time where husband Dax Shepard (left) accidentally flirted with her mom Lorelei via text message; the couple were pictured in 2017 at the SiriusXM Studio in New York
Welcome back! Kristen, who was just on Ellen's show in December, returned to discuss her latest ventures with the 62-year-old host
It all started when Bell's mother Lorelei decided to come to Los Angeles for a family visit.
'[My mom] sent [Dax] a text "be there by 11" and then he sends something else that says, "can't wait to see you tonight."
But, what was meant as a casual reply, quickly evolved into something else entirely.
'[Dax] meant to respond [a series of SMILEY FACE emojis], but instead he replied [with a series of EGGLANT emojis],' explained Bell.
According to Kristen, when Dax realized the magnitude of his emoji error, he let out a dramatic gasp, turned to her, and dramatically uttered: 'Oh no! I made a huge mistake!'

Kristen continued: '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.'
'Because now it reads,' began Kristen, who immediately switched to a sensual narration, 'I'll be there at 11. Can't wait to see you tonight.'
The audience, as well as the 62-year-old talk show host, roared with laughter.
'Which is NOT how the original text read, but, thankfully [her mother] doesn't know what an eggplant emoji is,' concluded Bell as she wiped imaginary beads of sweat from her forehead.
Totally different meaning: 'By the way, the minute you involve an eggplant emoji the WHOLE story changes,' said Kristen of her husband's hilarious mistake
Bell looked stunning in a black off-the-shoulder maxi dress for the talk show's Monday shoot.
Her signature blonde, shoulder length hair rested in a neat middle part that framed that actress' heart-shaped face.
She rounded out her appearance attire with a pair of statement making snakeskin boots that stood out against her monochromatic dress.
Even DeGeneres remarked on the actress' awe-inspiring glam.
'You are so dolled up, where are you going after this,' said Degeneres playfully.
'No, I'm just going to a rock climbing gym with my kids,' joked the actress behind gritted teeth.
