Melissa McCarthy can’t get enough of her husband Ben Falcone. The Identity Thief actress gushed about her actor-director and said she "hit the jackpot."
“It’s about finding someone who you just absolutely are better with. He’s nothing but supportive, and he’s super smart,” the Bridesmaids actress told People. “He makes me gut-laugh, like crazy gut-laugh, four or five times a day. I hit the jackpot!” She also noted that her husband, 46, “leads with nothing but kindness,” especially when it comes to raising their daughters Vivian, 12, and Georgette, 10.
“I just think if they ever meet somebody and that little red flag goes off, the bell is gonna sound even louder because they have Ben as their baseline,” Melissa, 49, noted of Ben's parenting skills. “They’re gonna pick well, whoever they end up with, you know? I want them to have someone utterly kind who roots them on.”
“We talk a lot to our kids about how being kind and good is really important. It’s hard to make that resonate in a world where the nastiest comment wins and it’s a sporting event to be mean to people,” the Illinois native told the publication. “Ben and I discussed wanting to put just really good stuff back out into the world.”
The couple is coproducing the latest season of NBC's Little Big Shots, which encourages people to embrace their quirks, something they are on the same page when it comes to their home life.
“It’s not the most serious household. There’s a lot of serious stuff happening in the world, and we don’t have to have it in the house,” Melissa confessed.
“I always say I’m living in a constant old Calgon commercial where every single day in our house there’s people yelling, people coming in and out, people riding through the living room. Our youngest is constantly on some kind of wheeled thing ripping through the house, and I just kind of love it,” she quipped.
