What happy news.
On Tuesday, James Corden took to Twitter to explain why Harry Styles was stepping into his role as host of The Late Late Show at the last minute. Of course, Corden had a very good reason for being MIA as his wife, Julia Carey, gave birth to their third child. Awwww.
On the arrival of his new daughter, the British late night host dished:
Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world. Both she and her mother are doing great. We can├óΓé¼Γäót stop smiling. Thank you Harry for stepping in to host the show at 2 and a half hours notice! x x x

James and Julia’s third pregnancy was confirmed by a rep back in July — they are also parents to son Max (6) and daughter Carey (3).
Thankfully, The Late Late Show was successful under Styles’ watch, who revealed he “was just at the hospital before [he] came to fill in.” In regards to what baby girl Corden looks like, the One Direction alum quipped:
“…she looks a lot like James ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ mainly because James looks like a giant baby.”
Too funny. While the 23-year-old has been on James’ program many times — he even had a week-long residency in May — the former boy bander only had a two hour warning before jumping into the role of host. He noted:
“I was sitting at home two hours ago in this suit, obviously. I got the call Jules was going into labor so James naturally called the funniest man he knew├óΓé¼┬ª he obviously wasn’t available.”
LOLz. We couldn’t be happier for James and Julia AND we’re so proud of Harry for being a last minute sub.
