John Mulaney Opens Up About His New Baby & His 'Complicated' Year In Candid 'Saturday Night Live' Monologue
John Mulaney got candid in his Saturday Night Live monologue, from hinting at his journey with sobriety to revealing the moment he knew his newborn shared with girlfriend Olivia Munn was truly his son.
"We were in the delivery room. My girlfriend had just given birth to him and he’s crying a little, so they bring him over to this warmer on the other side of the delivery room. [He’s] under this big bright light, and light is just shining in his eyes," Mulaney explained on this Saturday night's episode of SNL.
