Jimmy Fallon, Travis Scott and Jimmy Kimmel’s kids steal their shows while working from home during lockdown
The novel coronavirus pandemic that has caused stringent lockdowns across the globe has had some pretty adorable repercussions. With social distancing becoming the new normal, celebrities, talk show hosts, and newspersons have begun hosting shows and webcasts from their homes.
Away from the usually-controlled environments of their studios and stages, these webcasts face some interruptions. The recent most famous one was from Betty the Weather Cat, a pet that has now gone viral. It began when meteorologist Jeff Lyons of WFIE’s 14 News converted his living room into his new office in the midst of the lockdown. He set up a green screen for broadcasting his weather reports. With his human around, Betty couldn’t afford to be away from in front of the camera.
During one broadcast, Betty walked over to Lyons, demanding to be pet. Lyons then picked her up midway and Betty became an overnight internet sensation. She now often features on the show, while receiving cuddles.
But Betty isn’t the only one stealing the limelight away from those usually in front of cameras. Like pets, children too get in the way and the results have been adorable and hilarious. Recently, late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon‘s daughter made an appearance on his show. During the monologue portion of his now-at-home edition of ‘The Tonight Show’ on Monday, April 20, the host had to take a quick break. His five-year-old daughter Frances Cole entered the frame to speak with her father.
“Can I help you?” Fallon asked her, who immediately responded with, “Daddy, you know what?” before leaning in to whisper something into his ear. She told her father that someone “has two things that she needs to do,” before exiting the frame and asking her dad for his help later. “Absolutely,” Fallon responded, before turning to the camera and saying, “I can’t believe she recognized me with this great Hollywood lighting,” referring to the light situated on his lap.
Fallon wasn’t alone. The late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, on Thursday’s home edition of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ sported a full face of brightly colored makeup. In fact, he delivered his monologue while sporting that, a pretty floral-patterned bow headband and white necklace decorated with pastel-colored puff balls.
"To bring my daughter to work, my daughter, Jane, did my makeup tonight," Kimmel said, joking about the national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. He also showed footage of five-year-old Jane applying color to her dad's eyelids and cheeks and adding multicolored eyelashes. “Oh my gosh. You should look at yourself when you're done, okay?” said Jane, to which Kimmel asked, “Do I look beautiful?”
“You look like a girl!” said a giggly Jane.
The same day, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott's two-year-old daughter Stormi Webster made a surprise appearance at her father's Fortnite game. Scott's Instagram story during the game shows Stormi temporarily taking up her father's Playstation 4 controller. "Stormi took over. Be back one sec," Scott wrote on a video of his daughter as she played the game while wearing a pair of noise-canceling headphones.
