Harry Styles saves pal James Corden’s show
EX-ONE Directioner Harry Styles stepped in to host James Corden’s show after the TV star became a dad just before it was due to air.
James’s wife Julia Carey gave birth to a girl — a sibling to their son Max, 6, and daughter Carey, 3 — and stepping into the breach, Harry couldn’t resist poking fun at his pal.
‘I was just at the hospital before I came to fill in, and she looks a lot like James — mainly because James looks like a giant baby!’ he joked in his opening monolgue on the show.
Corden, meanwhile, thanked Hazza for filling in ‘at two and a half hours’ notice’, and the show’s producer, Ben Winston, also praised Styles’s impromptu performance after a ‘crazy day’.
‘Our wonderful host James Corden had his baby today with a half hour to go before the show!’ he revealed.
‘Congrats to the Cordens. And thanks to the incredible Harry Styles for stepping in literally at the last minute. What a performance with no prep!’
But we don’t think James needs to be worried about Harry stealing his spot, as Styles insisted it would be a ‘one-time only’ event — though he couldn’t resist adding, ‘unless CBS likes what they see…’
The birth comes just a day after Harry and James caused a stir by releasing a video of themselves kissing on the lips as part of the popular Carpool Karaoke segment.
After puckering up with his pal, Corden said: ‘Wow! I did not expect that for Christmas!’
