And he talks about it here while you were shooting. This your incidentally. Right. And this is when you had the accident. Yeah. Yeah. I was on a motorcycle scooter, but a big one. And I hit the guy a guy turned in front of me. I hit him at about seventy miles an hour. So I was a I got launched and I like crushed his his windshield in with my head, and then I went flying up after knock mammoth shoes, proper accident. And I actually thought that was it. You know. And if you did one hundred times ninety nine times I wouldn't be be around for. So I got I used up nine lives and then. My wife and I said, okay. Up's bowl to wheels. Well, we know that and we feel bad that you would not get to ride again. So what we've done for you. Come on. And you've got the sexiest man. Yeah, it's your which oh that's, that's an old one. Now the AARP sexiest man still alive. So that gift she just gave. Yes, is so funny, you have to see what it looks like check your DVR so you can see him driving around about scooter. Holy crap. It's a it's a great visual. I'm gonna turn over dead clapping. Thank you. I think we should play a clip of him talking about his kids twins and about how he is dad. I thought it was funny. Yes. Relatable and kind of adorable. Absolutely. So here that you have apparently to children. I found out I have two children. There are about like that now now, are they equal heights? No. He's taller. Yeah. It's weird. They're very they're very their own personalities. He goes outside hugs, my car car, and he hugs it, which is, is bad when I'm driving. Seems dangerous really gets right in the wheel wells. And then and then my daughter's up my wife's closet with versus going mine. So I see this is going to be a fun. Fun life. Yeah. And they're there to right? It'd be two in June. Okay. So two babies is one thing, but to walking around running things is another Zola. They run in two different directions. You should tell them together with, like a bungee. Yeah. So that they can only go so far. I hadn't thought of that. That's why I'm here I come to you for most parental advice. Yeah. Well, yes. I always come to you, aren't you smart? Yes. Yeah. But that's really sweet. That they're, and they're so are they pretty well behaved for two because the terrible twos is thing. Right. Very well. They were sick of the last couple of days does sort of ruin your nights is you must imagine, and did they in the same room. Yes. Most of the time, unless they're just waking each other. Right. Isn't that a thing like because I have a friend who has two kids, and to finally separate them and have their own rooms. Is that going to be a thing? I don't know. I haven't done it yet. I'm a find out it will come to me for parents advice. Do they have accents because you live in Italy? And then here in England and England. So you the other day I caught my son because my wife is very, very English. British my son said, zebra. To fix that. That's not gonna happen. No, no, no, no. But what kind of accent, they have, then if they're to do they have do they have an accent, cute? Tell you do. They can here's the scary part because the obviously got my, my wife's brains. They're, they're not quite two and they can count from one to twenty in English and Italian. I'm still trying to do the. That was. Yeah. Wow. They are super smart. Then. That's right.

Every week every SOPs up I get it. And I would say this you have to watch. But we go to L in tube and find it but we scared him the first time he was here. Yep. We scared him the last time us on the show. Right. And he came back. And of course, I said, we're not scaring you. He looked around. He was very suspect and did a lot of inspection of the tables to the way we scared on the last time was we played a game, and the performance area of our stage which was to people facing each other at a table seated facing each other at a table playing a game where they had to describe the it was, basically, it was called movies. But during it the table that they're playing in front of was like, made out of styrofoam and our talent exact Corey jumps out of this table and scares the bejesus. Sterling K Brown. So we knew we couldn't scare them that way. So we got a table that looked like a scare table. The top was a false top. You could open it up and see inside the table. We showed him all of that. And then during the game we dropped a ninja from the rafters at crazy and saying at such a fast speed and that can't not scare you. The you can't prepare yourself for something new guy. I knew it was coming in. It's slowed saying, yeah, we love you thought saying not saying I got you. Yeah, you're, you're you're pretty jumpy at times.
