Kristen Bell loves sloths. No, you don’t get it. She really, really, loves sloths. Kind of like the way you love kittens and puppies – but if nature somehow merged the two into an amalgamation of cuteness. A “kitup” or a “puppen”. Anyways, you get the point.

The 31-year-old actress (who can be seen in the new film “Big Miracle”) appeared on “Ellen” recently; disclosing her hilarious (and incredibly emotional) birthday meeting with a sloth.

“The day of my birthday, we’re sitting in the living room and I hear a knock at the door,” she told DeGeneres. “[Dax Shepard, her fiance] says, ‘Your present is here. Why don’t you go grab the dogs and go in the back room?’” Bell told DeGeneres. “I had no context for knowing what it was, but I grabbed the dogs and walk into the back room of the house and I was immediately overcome and I thought, ‘There’s a sloth near. There’s a sloth here; it’s close; it’s going to happen.’”

The Huffington Post quoted an Insider interview from last year where Bell said she Googles images of baby sloths several times a week.

Check out her emotional breakdown on “Ellen” below. Do you have something that you love as much as Kristen loves sloths?
