Corden has talked frankly on the challenges of parenting. In an interview with People Magazine in 2018, he recalled trying to go out with his family for lunch.

Speaking to People Magazine, Corden explained how he sealed a date during that first meeting.

He said: “I remember saying to her, ‘Well, what about on Friday we could do nothing together?’

“You could come over and we could just do nothing. And then maybe we could do nothing on the Saturday, and we could do nothing on the Sunday. And if our evenings are enough of nothing, then maybe this would become something.”

Carey, who was an actress on the TV show Wings, now works as TV producer in Los Angeles.

Corden, who has been living in Los Angeles since 2015, revealed to The Sun that his children have playdates with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s kids.
