Bell was talking about breastfeeding with Scandal star Katie Lowes.
After her daughter had stopped nursing, Bell had mastitis (it is a build-up of milk in the breast duct that, if left untreated, could turn into an infection).
"I was in Atlanta. We couldn't call a doctor, and this was right after the baby stopped nursing. I said to my husband, 'I really need you to suck this out. We could talk about it, we could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse. He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I've never been more in love. In my life."
