During his recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, THE Gossip Girl star, 36, recently offered a rare glimpse into his life since he and wife Domino Kirke welcomed their first child, James Badgley together in 2020.
“Well, you know he’s a pandemic kid,” Badgley told Fallon on Tuesday. “Anyone who has kids, it’s a joy, it’s huge – I mean, it’s wild. It’s adorable. It’s good. It’s a challenge. Cheers to all the parents. Keep it up! Keep it up, it’s getting better.”
Badgley was asked if his toddler knew his father played the serial killer in the Netflix drama series, he explained that James wasn’t entirely aware of his psychopathic character, but he had seen his on-screen father. “We’re going to have to smash that one for him,” he jokingly replied.
“There was a day recently where I was doing something really nice with him, you know, like on my knees,” Badgley added.
“And then I sat on the remote and…it went straight to Netflix on the TV, and my face was just on the TV. He was like, ‘Dad!’ “.
“I started running because the next thing he was going to see was something really crazy.”
Badgley and Kirke tied the knot in 2017 at a New York courthouse and welcomed their first child together two years later.
