Children pick up accents much easier than adults! Jason Sudeikis shared a hilarious story about her children during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. THE Horrible bosses star, 47, revealed that her two children Otis, 8, and Daisy, 6, which he shares with his ex Olivia Wilde, 39, had started developing British accents while living in the UK while working on his hit series Ted Lasso.
Jason admitted that since the kids have been in the UK for most of the last year they’ve picked up the accent, but he also joked that he hasn’t gotten very strong. “We came back in November, and we’re back in Los Angeles right now, but he and Daisy were there for most of 2022, and they started having very little accents, but not enough. They went as far as Dick Van Dyke In Mary Poppins,” he joked. “Someone takes care of their Disney+ a lot.”
Given the emphasis that Ted Lasso has about football, Seth Meyers asked the star if her children were fans of the sport. “Strangely, Otis has fallen in love with it more since he’s been back here,” he said, while admitting his son regularly watches YouTube videos about different football stars. “He is really enjoying football at the moment.”
He also revealed that his children discovered the love of music with a karaoke machine which he attributes to a great popstar. “They love composing songs,” he said. “I really believe it’s because I had the – what’s it called when you think of something – the way to look at the Billie Eilish documentary. So when you see Billie and her big brother Finneas making music together and making each other laugh, it was a bit like when I went to visit my uncle george on the Cheers together.”
Jason and Olivia have been in a custody battle for their children since the start of 2022, and it’s reportedly still ongoing when the Ted Lasso the star’s attorney went to a New York judge to resolve child support issues in February, per TMZ. Despite the custody battle, the former couple were seen cuddling while meeting in January.
