Just half an hour ago, James and his wife Jules had a beautiful baby girl,” he told the audience, adding that he “was just at the hospital before I came to fill in and she looks a lot like James – mainly because James looks like a giant baby.”
The 23-year-old heartthrob added, “I was sitting at home two hours ago in this suit, obviously. I got the call Jules was going into labor so James naturally called the funniest man he knew… he obviously wasn’t available.”
Poking fun at his and James’ kiss in the “Carpool Karaoke” footage, Harry quipped, “I would like to take the opportunity to announce that… we will also be having a baby!”
