Here’s something you don’t hear every day on late night television:
Ellie Kemper and Michael Koman had a big decision to make when it came to raising their 1-year-old son
You see, Kemper was raised Catholic, while Koman was raised Jewish… Well, theUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star joined The Late Show Wednesday night and dished to Stephen Colbert that they decided to go the Catholic route…though she’s not sure if she received a sign from the “higher ups” that perhaps she made the wrong
“He got baptized sort of late, like in May, he was 10 months old,” Kemper began. “I was actually very nervous when the priest was holding him because I’m not sure priests are known for their, like, grit.”
She continued, “[At 10-months-old] they’re strong, and they’re emotional, and they have opinions…He screamed.”
Colbert jokingly explained that means the priest “got rid of the devil” inside little James, but Kemper isn’t convinced.
“An hour after the baptism,” Kemper recalled, “I found James with a shard of glass in his hand! It was in my parents’ house…He was miraculously unhurt. I don’t know if he was testing God. I don’t know what the point was, but I mean, he turned out OK. I don’t know if it was a sign.”
