Laura Prepon’s toddler daughter staged somewhat of a dirty protest on meeting her baby brother for the first time, the actress has revealed. 

The Orange Is The New Black star, who played Alex Vause in the prison series, revealed that her daughter Ella, two and a half, ‘peed on everything’ when she was introduced to the new addition to the family. 

Laura, 40, told Live with Kelly and Ryan how she tried to introduce Ella to her new sibling: ‘She loves this show called Daniel Tiger and on his show, he got a new baby sister and we would try and explain it to her and be like, “Daniel Tiger has a baby sister, you’re gonna have a baby brother”. 

‘So we really tried to get her to understand the concepts of it. She understood it.’

However, their first meeting didn’t go quite to plan as Laura added: ‘We brought him in to introduce him to our daughter and in her bedroom, we have this pretty cloth tepee — there’s a bunch of blankets in it and stuffed animals, where she plays — and we brought the baby in and introduced them.

‘And it was the craziest thing — she ran into the tepee, took off all of her clothes, stared at us and just peed on everything.

‘It was the most primal marking of territory. And we were trying not to laugh because we didn’t want her to think it was okay for her to pee on her stuff, but it was so funny.

However, she revealed that Ella took to her new brother – whose name Laura and her husband Ben Foster have not yet revealed – pretty well after that. 

Laura and her husband also haven’t shared any photos of their children’s faces on social media, admitting it was a personal choice to protect their children’s privacy. 

She explained: ‘Everyone is different with pictures of their kids – no judgment, do your thing. 

‘It’s a personal thing, but for my husband and I, that’s where we do remain extra private, is when it comes to our kids.’
