2:07 am
media, here you go. go easy on me for the next 90 years. >> steven colbert had a great take, because everyone was talking about how beautiful kate looked when she came out and a lot of women the day after you give birth you don't look like that. anyway, steven colbert had fun with it. >> this is the new standard what you must look like 24 hours after giving birth, smiling, glamorous, hair perfect, radiant and fresh. okay, step up your game. >> so bad. >> that's funny. he's right, though. jessica alba, some of these beautiful women have set the standard and we see them in the pictures. when you're a woman, can be intimidating. she looked great. >> do you remember when you first took your baby home? >> yeah, i do. >> william took it, stuck it in the car, locked it down. >> we hadn't bought our car seat until the day before. we were barely prepared. he was well rehearsed. i see he went with the britax, we have the boulevard in the
2:08 am
daly household.nap an that base is already in there. the baby is harnessed in, it's snapped in, then he drives off. most dads don't get it right. we got home and i realized in hindsight jackson, my son, was barely even restraint. i had his arm out, his head was over here. we actually walked in our house in santa monica with our first kid and you've probably done the same thing, it's such an overwhelming moment. you're so surprised the hospital lets you leave with this precious cargo. we put jackson on the table, now what, what do you do now? >> how was the drive from the hospital home? i wondered with him behind the wheel, you're responsible for more than just you and your wife. >> you do have precious cargo and that drive is something you'll always remember unless you have royal secret service driving you. >> he drove himself. >> blind spots, you drive defensively. you assume someone is going to hit you and avoid it at all costs, of course.
2:09 am
>> congrats to our good, good friend jimmy fallon, he and his baby had a baby, too. they have not yet named their baby either. >> what are they waiting for? >> waiting until they know what to name the baby. >> they are great. congratulations, jimmy and nancy, that's awesome. so, there was a couple who was in disney world and the husband was about to propose to his future wife. >> at disney world, is that romantic to you? >> that would not be in my top 20, not in my top 20. so, there's a moment, moment you remember for a lifetime. every now and then someone steps in the middle of it and kind of blows it. there was some guy and they are calling it the in the way guy. do you see him with the thing around his -- okay, he stood right in front. >> that guy is proposing to that guy. i'm like who's the person -- i'm waiting for goofy to come out. this is not a same-sex proposal. >> no, it is not. the wife's behind.
2:10 am

2:11 am
what he was going to do, because he said more things were coming out. but, in fact, they were things that happened since that apology and there was a big "people" magazine spread -- >> what happened to that family, the baby -- >> it said i'm a different man now. they said when that thing was printed, he had sent a sext to that girl a week before that. >> while he was apologizing, pretending to be a changed man, he was still in the sexting acts. >> she looked really in pain. >> why would she give such a big speech like that, though, didn't make any sense. i felt sort of sorry for her. they are three years into their marriage, then they have a baby, think they can get it back on track. >> he's running for mayor. >> this stuff happens, she's on the campaign trail. first three years of your marriage is supposed to be the honeymoon phase, where does it go from here? >> you wonder, every woman turns into judge judy, so does every man. how could you do that? we don't know what's happening in their world, but most women just stand there like a potted
2:12 am

2:13 am
more that's coming out, remember, i told you there was more. so he said that, you know, i would guess there's probably more. >> definitely more. the answer is, yes. >> the answer is -- should we show these or no? this was his name when he was sexting. >> carlos danger? that is just disgusting. >> why is that your name, carlos danger? and you know what, if you read the sexts, and don't read them, if you choose to, they are bad. >> read one. >> no. >> every time there's a bad word, substitute it with roker. >> you are -- >> i'm alone at night holding my roker. what are you doing? can you send me a picture of your roker. is it like that? how explicit is it? oh, these are them? >> be careful. >> still holding your hair. okay, i spread your roker. your lauers are swinging already. take out -- that's a good read.
