You wouldn’t know it from the couple’s social media platforms, but Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone have the coolest kids on the planet. The comedy duo — who refrain from posting about their kids on social media aside from rare photos where their faces are obscured — have had their fair share of funny moments on screen, but their two daughters, Vivian and Georgette, are just as funny — if not more — say the couple.
“It’s a balancing act. Kids are really smart,” McCarthy told People at the premiere of “The Boss.” “They pick up on everything and then you still have to not laugh in front of them as you tell them that something’s not appropriate, or something might be too aggressive. Then, when they leave the room . . .”
“You laugh really hard,” Falcone chimed in.
McCarthy and Falcone are so invested in parenting, they both took part in writing Falcone’s book about fatherhood, “Being a Dad Is Weird,” for which McCarthy wrote the foreword.
Just like their mom and dad, Vivian and Georgette have a knack for the big screen. Both sisters acted alongside McCarthy in “The Boss,” and McCarthy and Vivian also costarred in Netflix’s “Thunder Force” (Vivian played McCarthy’s characters’ younger selves in both movies). Falcone wrote the script, making it a family affair. Learn more about Viv and Georgie and their bright futures below.
