Kristen Bell has used melatonin to help her children sleep.

The 42-year-old actress has been married to 'Armchair Expert' host Dax Shepard, 47, since 2013 and has daughters Lincoln, nine and Delta, seven, with him and admitted that she used gummies containing the natural hormone to get her children to sleep and she could "hook up" with her husband.

She said: "We just graduated from them sleeping on the floor on this trifold mattress. So you can congratulate me—we did it, they now sleep in their room on beds right next to each other and they cuddle with each other instead of us.. [We used] Hello Bello nighttime gummies. It would knock them out quicker and they'd be great, and then we would hook up. We do not want to go to sleep when they want to go to sleep, so we would hook up our headphones by Bluetooth to the television, put on a show and they would be on the floor like trying to fall asleep. So, that's how we got out of having to go to bed at the same time."

Meanwhile, the 'Frozen' star explained that she had also "desperately tried" the girls to pack their own lunches after complaints but her tactic backfired when they chose to fill their boxes with Skittles.

She told E! News: "I desperately tried to get them to pack their own lunch, but it does not always work. It's like, okay, you didn't like what I packed, you pack your lunch. And I looked in and it was like literally all Skittles!"
