Huge, heartfelt congratulations are in order for James Corden and his wife, Julia Carey, who welcomed baby No. 3 into their clan on Dec. 12!
How awesome is that? It sounds like Carey went into labor and they had to scramble at the last minute to find a guest host for Corden’s “Late Late Show.” Fortunately, Harry Styles was kind enough to take the helm.
Corden took to social media to announce the arrival of his newest little one. He revealed that the baby is a girl (but no word yet on her name):
Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world. Both she and her mother are doing great. We can’t stop smiling. Thank you Harry for stepping in to host the show at 2 and a half hours notice! x x x

As you can imagine, Corden and Carey are over-the-moon with joy at the birth of their baby girl. This is the third child for the couple. They also have a 6-year-old boy named Max and a 3-year-old daughter named Carey (after Mama’s maiden name, of course).
Corden met his talented wife in 2009 through a mutual friend, actor Dominic Cooper who is best known for his roles in “Captain America” and “Marilyn.”
Carey, a former actress, is now a television producer—alongside the busy job of raising two (now, three) little ones. However, many people credit her with helping to encourage Corden’s success, including Corden himself. Upon receiving a Tony award for his work in the play “One Man, Two Guvnors,” the late-night talk show host had this to say about Carey:
“Seriously, I would not be holding this if it wasn’t for her. She made me say ‘us’ instead of ‘I’ and ‘we’ instead of ‘me’ and I love her. Thank you very much.”
He also later credited her for being willing to move to the States (Corden and Carey both hail from the United Kingdom) in order for him to pursue his career, even though she had a 5-week-old-baby and a 3-year-old toddler to consider as well.
As we know, their risk-tasking and Carey’s faith in her hubby paid off big-time. And now they have another bouncing baby to add to their beautiful family. We’re wishing them much happiness—and hopefully a little sleep!
