Kenan Thompson On Becoming a Father: “I’m Terrified”

By  | 


Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson may be full of jokes, but he will soon be taking on a more serious role as a father.

The 35-year-old and his wife, Christina Evangeline, are expecting their first child.

“I’m about to be a daddy!” he said on Late Night with Seth Meyers. “That’s right! Papa Kenan.”

When Seth Meyers asked the funnyman if he is ready for his impending fatherhood, he had a confession to make.

“I am terrified. I don’t know what to do with babies. Like, what do you feed it and, like, put it away or something?” he joked.

Thompson also admitted that accompanying his wife to prenatal visits are sort of freaking him out.

“A guy’s doctor visit is straightforward—just a little cough, a little touch here, a little ear, nose and throat. But women, that’s an intricate type situation. You go through a lot—I applaud you,” Thompson added.
