During a conversation with reporters from Us Weekly over the weekend, Joel McHale revealed he and his wife, Sarah Williams, spoke with Dr. Drew Pinksy for help regarding something terrible that happened in their lives.
The host explained that he and his spouse spoke with the infamous doctor quite a bit. The 46-year-old actor said it was “so strange and wonderful” that such a famous person was so willing to help them.
“We’re forever in debt to that man,” McHale remarked. McHale said that, while they were never actually his official patients, they could easily talk to him, and he would always respond.
Joel, however, didn’t reveal when she had her miscarriage, or when he and his wife spoke to her, but currently, the pair has two sons together, Edward and Isaac who are 13 and 10 respectively.
Earlier in 2017, McHale discovered something surprising about himself that he never realized until his kids came down with an illness. The actor’s children were diagnosed with Dyslexia, an ailment that affects reading, writing, and sometimes even speaking comprehension.
When he was on Dax Sheperd’s Armchair Expert podcast, Joel said the doctor began describing all of the symptoms, and Joel said, “that’s what I have!”
The doctor then told him she was wondering which parent, Joel or Sarah, passed down the illness because that’s how it’s transferred; it’s hereditary. As you may know, McHale and Williams tied the knot in 1996.
The last time we heard from Joel was when he spoke about an interesting experience he had with the producers of E! Formerly, Joel said that he was told by E! to stop talking so much smack about the Kardashians because both parties had the same employer, and it was bad for business.
