Baby joy! James Corden and his wife Julia welcome daughter named Carey

James Corden and his wife Julia have welcomed their second child.

Representatives for the actor and presenter have confirmed to MailOnline that Julia gave birth to the couple’s first daughter on Monday night.

According to The Sun, the pair have named their baby girl, Carey, which is Julia’s maiden name.


The pair are already parents to their three year-old son, Max, whose birth caused Corden to revamp his lifestyle so he could be a healthier parent.

So far the BAFTA-winner has lost five stone, going from 21 stone to 16 stone.

But James wasn’t all too excited with the reality of parenthood after the arrival of his firstborn, as he told Danny Wallace on XFM, it could be rather ‘annoying’.

‘For a while it’s nothing but annoying and then slowly and surely in around three months when you get a smile you go, “Aww, actually you’re all right”,’ Corden joked in 2011.

He joked: ‘Let’s be honest – I’m fed up of these guys who go, “Aww! The minute I held it in my arms, I just knew I’d jump in front of a bus for it.” No you didn’t. A parked bus maybe.’

James previously revealed that his son was given one of his middle names in honour of Beatles legend, Sir Paul McCartney.

The comedian had to promise that his son would bear the musician’s name in order to get Sir Paul to agree to appear on a Comic Relief TV sketch.


The pair shared the story as they appeared on The Graham Norton Show in 2013.

Explaining his approach to Sir Paul, Corden said: ‘I laid it on very thick, telling him, “people won’t die if you do our sketch”. It makes it very difficult for people to say no.

‘He said, “bloody hell, James, I’ve heard some groveling in my time”. I then said, “that’s nothing – if you’d said no, I was going to say I would name my unborn child after you”.

‘To which he said, “if you promise to do that, I’ll do the sketch”. And that’s why my son is called Max McCartney Kimberley Corden.’
