He’s keeping it real! In a candid new interview, late night host James Corden admitted that life has become a bit more complicated now that he and his wife, Julia Carey, are parents to three young kids.
While recently speaking to People, James, 39, jokingly confessed it’s sometimes “not worth” the hassle for himself and his wife to take their three children, son Max, 6, and daughters Carey, 3, and Charlotte, 6, months, out to eat at a restaurant. “We looked like we were fleeing the country. We had that much stuff. It’s absurd. The bags, and the stroller, and the baby here, and there’s wipes everywhere, and [diaper rash cream], and she’s got a sore bum,” he joked.
“You’re asking for the check before you’ve sat down. You’re just shoveling pasta and butter into one of their mouths as you’re trying to eat yours. You have to leave a huge tip, because the place is covered in crayons. And it’s just not worth it,” James added.
Last December, James and Julia welcomed their newest addition, third child Charlotte, into the family. At the time, the comedian was so overwhelmed by his daughter’s arrival that he admitted to almost naming her Beyoncé.
“I looked at the doctor and I said, ‘We’re going to call her Beyoncé.’ My wife did not think that was funny,” James said on The Late Late Show last year. Not realizing he was joking at first, James explained that a nurse actually started filling out Charlotte’s birth cerfiticate with the name Beyoncé before the star corrected her. “I had to go over to her and go, ‘Excuse me, there’s only one Beyoncé,'” he said.
Now that he’s a dad-of-three, James said he’s gotten used to juggling parenthood and his Hollywood career. “Your first child, you’re like, ‘Oh! He coughed. Is he okay? Oh my God. Google it! Google the cough. Check the temperature. Oh, my word. And you’re telling people, ‘Shh!’ Your third one, you’re like… what did she do, cough? Yeah, she’ll be fine. We’ll figure it out.’ It just becomes easier,” he remarked before sweetly adding that fatherhood has helped him “realize the depth of love that you could feel for someone you’ve just met.”
