On Wednesday’s episode of Live with Kelly & Mark, the Ferrari actor, 40, opened up about welcoming his second baby, a daughter, with wife Joanna Tucker, revealing that life with a newborn can be challenging at times.
After co-host Kelly Ripa, 53, asked Driver about his daughter, he shared, “She’s 8 months.”
“How nice! That must’ve been like a Santa’s wish, I guess.” Ripa said.
“Yeah, yeah. I have an older son who is 6 and so she, now she’s 8 months and you kind of forget how much babies kinda suck,” Driver laughed.
Ripa’s co-host Mark Consuelos, 52, went on to ask if the actor has been getting any sleep since welcoming the newborn.
“Not a lot, not a lot, not a lot,” Driver said. “But I’m remembering this time that I have to enjoy it more. This first time, it went too fast and I was so anxious for him to kind of develop so he could communicate and tell me what was wrong. And now I’m more patient with her. I’m trying to enjoy it more.”
The star added that he’s having better luck this time around because his daughter “likes me more,” whereas with his son, “he didn’t want anything to do with me for the first three years.”
Earlier this month, PEOPLE confirmed that the actor had welcomed his daughter. According to Page Six, who was the first to report the news, Driver announced the arrival of his baby girl during a dress rehearsal for his stint as a host on Saturday Night Live.
“Last year, I asked for a baby girl, and I got it, which is exhausting,” the star reportedly said while practicing his opening monologue. “So this year, I wish for Ambien!”
This wasn’t the first time Driver announced some big news during the sketch comedy show.
After making a few hints, Driver finally addressed his dad status in his opening monologue during his Saturday Night Live hosting appearance in 2020, telling the crowd, “I’m a husband. And a father. It’s in that order though. I’ve been very clear with my son about that, he’s second in everything.”
