- MAYBE YOUR LITTLE GIRL WILL TURN OUT TO BE A DANCER.

SHE COULD DO ANYTHING SHE WANTS.

SHE'S GONNA BE SPOILED ROTTEN.

HER NAME IS WYATT. - YES.

- AND SHE'S, WHAT, TWO MONTHS OLD NOW?

- UH, YEAH, A LITTLE BIT--

LIKE, A LITTLE BIT OLDER THAN TWO MONTHS.

LIKE, 2 1/2 MONTHS ALMOST, YEAH.

[laughter]

TWO MONTHS, 12 DAYS.

- SO MILA IS-- - I'M NOT COUNTING.

- [chuckles] AND YOU HAVE NO NANNY?

IT'S JUST MILA AND YOU TAKING CARE OF THE BABY?

- YEAH, IT'S JUST THE TWO OF US.

- WOW. - IT'S AWESOME.

IT'S UNBELIEVABLE. - GOOD FOR YOU.

[cheers and applause]

- I WANT TO--YOU KNOW--

IT'S INCREDIBLE.

YOU KNOW, YOU GET-- LIKE, WHEN YOU FIRST GET THEM,

IT'S, YOU'RE ALL EXCITED, AND YOU'RE, LIKE, READY TO,

LIKE, DO ALL THESE THINGS, AND YOU HAVE ALL THESE DREAMS,

AND THEN YOU REALIZE IT'S LIKE GETTING A NEW CELL PHONE

WHERE ALL THE FEATURES DON'T WORK YET.

IT'S LIKE A PHONE THAT, LIKE, DOESN'T HAVE--

IT WON'T TAKE PICTURES.

IT'S LIKE, WHY DOES MY NEW PHONE NOT TAKE PICTURES?

AND IT WON'T MAKE CALLS, AND IT DOESN'T DO A LOT.

BUT IT LOOKS REALLY CUTE.

[laughter]

- BUT EVERY DAY, THERE MUST BE A NEW THING--

THAT SHE'S FOCUSING AND GRASPING.

- YEAH, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

SHE FOUND HERSELF IN THE MIRROR

AND REALIZED SHE WAS ABLE TO CONTROL THE THING

IN THE MIRROR...

- WOW. - WHICH WAS PRETTY COOL.

- YEAH, IT WAS-- BUT THE MOST AMAZING THING

ABOUT HAVING A BABY IS MY PARTNER, MILA.

SHE'S THE GREATEST MOM.

I CAN'T EVEN--

LIKE, I GO TO WORK EVERY DAY,

AND I COME HOME, AND SHE'S, LIKE, PERFECT,

AND IT JUST SEEMS LIKE EVERYTHING WENT AMAZING.

[laughter]

AND I KNOW THAT SOMETHING PROBABLY DIDN'T GO AMAZING,

BUT SHE NEVER COM-- LIKE, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

SHE'S INCREDIBLE.

I'M REALLY LUCKY. - THAT'S AMAZING.

WELL, GOOD FOR HER, AND GOOD FOR YOU

FOR RECOGNIZING THAT.

[applause] THAT'S HARD.

I MEAN, SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO STAY HOME AND DO THAT, AND--

I MEAN, YOU COULD HIRE A NANNY,

BUT YOU WANT TO DO IT-- YOU WANT TO--

- YEAH, WE JUST WANT TO KNOW OUR KID,

AND WE WANT-- LIKE, WE WANT TO BE THE PEOPLE

THAT KNOW WHAT TO DO TO-- WHEN THE BABY'S CRYING

TO MAKE THE BABY NOT CRY ANYMORE.

WE WANT TO KNOW, LIKE, WHEN SHE MAKES A LITTLE FACE

OR A LITTLE SOMETHING OR DOES A LITTLE--

LIKE, WE WANT TO BE EMOTIONALLY IN TOUCH WITH HER,

AND I THINK THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN DO THAT

IS BY BEING THE ONE WHO'S THERE.

AND THAT'S IT.

- AND WHAT'S THE HARDEST THING THAT--

WHAT SURPRISED YOU THE MOST ABOUT IT?

- UM...

YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST HOW MUCH YOU CAN LOVE ANOTHER PERSON.

LIKE, YOU THINK YOU KNOW

HOW MUCH YOU CAN LOVE ANOTHER PERSON,

AND THEN YOU HAVE A CHILD, AND THEN YOU REALIZE

YOU DIDN'T KNOW.

AND--AND IT'S--

IT'S, LIKE, INFINITELY REWARDING.

THERE'S A GREAT QUOTE BY CARLOS SLIM,

AND HE SAID, "MOST PEOPLE THINK THAT THEY NEED TO

"MAKE A BETTER WORLD FOR THEIR CHILDREN,

"BUT THE REALITY IS,

WE JUST NEED TO MAKE BETTER CHILDREN FOR OUR WORLD."

AND I TRY TO LIVE BY THAT.

AND I THINK-- I REALLY--

LIKE, I LOOK AT THIS AS THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY

OF MY LIFE.

- WOW. GREAT.

[applause]

AND I AGREE WITH THAT.

I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE,

AND WE TEACH THEM WELL AND LET THEM LEAD THE WAY

IS WHAT I BELIEVE.

[laughter]

I'VE ALWAYS SAID IT.

SO NOW, IT MUST BE HARD THOUGH,

BECAUSE YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY LEAVE THE HOUSE.

I MEAN, 'CAUSE PAPARAZZI-- FIRST OF ALL,

THE TWO OF YOU ARE HOUNDED, BUT NOW YOU'VE GOT A BABY,

AND, OH, PAPARAZZI LOVE BABIES.

- YEAH, I MEAN, WE HAVE, LIKE, ALL THESE COOL TOYS.

LIKE, WE GOT A LOT OF GIFTS FROM PEOPLE

THAT ARE SUPER GENEROUS,

AND WE HAVE ALL THESE COOL TOYS,

AND WE DON'T GET TO USE THEM ALL.

LIKE--YOU KNOW, LIKE A--

I WOULD LIKE TO JUST USE THE STROLLER ONCE,

BUT, LIKE, WE DON'T GET TO GO TO THE MALL AND STROLL.

- MM-MM. [laughter]

- SO I'M LIKE--I HAVE--

AND I'VE ASSEMBLED A LOT OF THINGS

THAT WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN TO USE YET.

AND SO I'M JUST ASSEMBLING THINGS, ELLEN.

[laughter] - YOU'RE A MAN.

YOU'RE A MAN ASSEMBLING THINGS.

- I'M AN ASSEMBLER.

[applause]

- SO YOU'RE HUDDLED TOGETHER INDOORS,

YOU AND MILA AND WYATT--

- [laughing]

YOU MAKE IT SOUND LIKE WE'RE IN A CABIN.

WE'RE HUDDLED AROUND A FIRE HOLDING THE BABY.

- WELL, 'CAUSE YOU CAN'T LEAVE. WHAT DO YOU DO INSIDE?

WHAT DO YOU DO? - [chuckles]

UM... [laughter]

YOU KNOW, I'VE WATCHED MORE TELEVISION

THAN I'VE EVER WATCHED IN THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS.

- WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING?

- WE STARTED WATCHING "THE VOICE."

- "THE VOICE" IS GOOD. - IT'S AMAZING.

- "THE VOICE" IS GOOD.

- THOSE PEOPLE ARE SO TALENTED.

THEY'RE SO TALENTED, THESE KIDS.

AND WE HAVE THESE-- WE HAVE FUNNY CONVERSATIONS

ABOUT, LIKE, "GOD, DIDN'T GWEN LOOK GREAT TONIGHT?"

AND, LIKE, WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE FRIENDS WITH GWEN.

AND THAT'S FUN.

AND THEN, YOU KNOW, WE'RE--

OH, WE WERE WATCHING THIS--

WE STARTED WATCHING THIS SHOW CALLED "UTOPIA."

- I TRIED TO WATCH THAT.

- I THINK WE WERE THE ONLY ONES IN AMERICA

THAT WERE WATCHING IT, AND--

'CAUSE I WOULD, LIKE, TRY TO ENGAGE FRIENDS.

LIKE, "OH, DID YOU SEE 'UTOPIA'?"

AND THEY WERE LIKE, "NO, WE DIDN'T.

THAT'S NOT--THAT'S NOT ONE OF THE COOL SHOWS."

SO IT GOT CANCELED. - RIGHT.

[laughter]

- AND THEN--AND THAT WAS, LIKE, THE FIRST SHOW

THAT I REALLY LOVED TO WATCH THAT GOT CANCELED.

IT WAS LIKE--REMEMBER WHEN BECKY DISAPPEARED FROM "ROSEANNE"?

IT WAS LIKE THAT.

- OH, YEAH. [laughter]

- SHE WAS JUST GONE.

- IT'S NOT-- IT'S NOT THAT BAD.

YOU NEED PRIVACY.

YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO BE ABLE TO WALK YOUR BABY.

SO LOOK AT THIS. WATCH THIS.

ALL RIGHT. - WHAT?

- YOU BRING THE BABY OUT.

THE BABY'S COMFORTABLE.

AND THEN IT'S...

[laughter] PAPARAZZI-FREE.

- I NEED ONE OF THOSE FOR ME.

- I KNOW. ALL OF YOU.

HOW GREAT--AND IT'S A REALLY GOOD STROLLER TOO.

- THAT'S INCREDIBLE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[cheers and applause] THANK YOU SO MUCH.

- YOU'RE WELCOME.
