James Corden may be a celebrity but he is also a dad who has normal daddy duties and struggles with some, including bringing his kids to the restaurant.

Family Time

Corden may seem like the carefree and happy dad who does not let things bother him, because he appears relax and jolly in his shows. However, the host admits that he too gets annoyed.

In a candid interview, the father-of-three reveals that eating out with his family can sometimes get annoying and it is for a surprisingly relatable reason. Corden admits that eating at a restaurant with his kids is a "nightmare."

The talk show host jokes that they look like they are "fleeing the country," because he has extra bags with him. The bags contain his children's essentials, like their toys, snacks, and extra clothing. Corden says that it is "just not worth" all the hassle to dine out with his entire brood during weekends.

The Carpool Karaoke host recalls one Sunday after he got back from Liverpool and took the kids out to eat. They had lunch at a place at the end of their road and they looked absurd with the extra bags they brought along.

Dining Out

The 39-year-old TV personality says that his experience as a dad has given him more empathy for his own parents. He now understands why they used to not do anything with their kids on the weekends because it is "too much hassle." Corden then breaks down what his typical day with his kids at a restaurant looks like.

"The bags and the stroller, and the baby here and there's wipes everywhere, and Sudocrem, and she's got a sore bum," the Late Late Show host tells Jess Cagle, editor-in-chief of People magazine.

The comedian adds that eating at a restaurant becomes a race to eat the food before a meltdown from the kids happens.

"You're asking for the check before you've sat down. You're just shoveling pasta and butter into one of their mouths as you're trying to eat yours," he explains.

Corden adds that he has to leave the restaurant a big tip because of the mess the kids leave behind. They usually leave crayons scattered around the place.

Corden shares three toddlers with wife Julia Carey. They have son Max, 7 and daughters Carey, 3, and Charlotte, 6 months old.
