The Office star Angela Kinsey is enjoying pretending that she’s pregnant on the hit NBC sitcom, but according to the actress, her daughter, Isabel Ruby is having just as much fun with her mom’s fake bump.
“The day I got fitted for it, I brought my 3-year-old daughter. Why would I do that? That’s weird, what am I doing to her?” Kinsey, 40, joked during a recent appearance on Conan. “She was like, ‘You have a fake belly and it squishes.’ And then she was [poking it like a punching bag].”
That’s not the only prosthetic Kinsey’s been sporting these days. The single mama has also gotten quite comfortable with the “very round” derriere her Struck by Lightning director asked her to wear for her role in the film.
Angela embraced the “Kardashian moment,” and Isabel loved telling everyone about her mom’s new tush.
“My daughter started saying things to my neighbors like, ‘My mama has a fake butt,’” Angela shares. “And I was like, ‘She’s…messed up. Sorry.”
Kinsey is concerned, however, that Isabel may have a bit of an obsession that can be traced back to her potty-training days.
“If you came over to my house and had to go to the bathroom, she’d be like, ‘He’s going, let’s go everybody! Check it out!’” Kinsey tells host Conan O’Brien. “The other night I went to the bathroom and I didn’t tell her [because] she was playing. And then she literally came around the corner and was like, ‘Did you just flush the toilet?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah.’ And she’s like, ‘But I wanted to see you poop!” says Kinsey, who says that Isabel immediately started “freaking out.”
“She was like, ‘Poop again! Poop now!’ and I was like, ‘No, I’m not going to poop again! You don’t do that!’ For five minutes she was like [sobbing], ‘I didn’t see your poop!’”
