Kristen Bell says being a mother is ''far more rewarding than exhausting.''

The 'Veronica Mars' actress, who has 15-month-old daughter Lincoln with husband Dax Shepard, loves watching their little girl grow up and become more independent.

The 33-year-old star said: ''She's delicious. It's such a fun age. I feel like having a toddler is exhausting and extremely rewarding -- and far more rewarding than exhausting.''

The blonde beauty spends as much time as possible with her daughter and even takes her on hiking dates with her husband.

She told ''My go-to workout is usually hiking. I often will strap the baby to my chest for the hike.''

She added: ''[Hiking] is easy because sometimes it doesn't actually take me away from anything because my whole family's coming on the hike.''

The 'Frozen' actress married Dax, 39, in a low-key ceremony that cost $142 in Los Angeles last October and the couple hope to have more children as soon as possible.

Kristen previously said: ''I would love to give her a sibling. I had two older sisters ad I think the relationship between siblings is so special. You're able to share that, 'We're all in this together,' feeling. Because growing up is, like, the worst. Your body hurts and you can't communicate with anyone, and you think you know stuff before you know it, and your parents are idiots, and they're embarrassing.''
