Jordan Peele Can’t Get His Baby Son to Laugh


Jordan Peele hasn’t yet figured out the trick to making his baby boy laugh.

The actor and filmmaker is married to Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Chelsea Peretti, with the couple welcoming their son Beaumont last July (17).

While their little one, nicknamed Beau, is very content, Jordan admitted during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday (09Jan18) that the tot will only giggle for his wife.

“I’m married to Chelsea Peretti, a very funny comedian, and clearly funnier than I am. She gets him to laugh, I can’t,” he moaned.

The Get Out writer and director added that Chelsea will get a chuckle out of Beau whenever she makes a “boo” sound. But he struggles to replicate that “magic quality”.

“I try the exact same thing and he just (turns serious). It’s the look away that’s really disheartening,” he sighed. “It’s tough being married to a hilarious comedian!”
