James Corden’s baby, a girl, came as a huge surprise this week! Apparently, there is a very funny story regarding the newborn’s name too! After welcoming the bundle of joy, the nurse asked for her moniker, and Corden simply said ‘Beyonce!’
A couple of days ago Corden became a third-time dad after wife Julia delivered their baby girl.
Upon coming back to The Late Late Show, James decided to share with his audience the extremely amusing story of the child’s unexpected birth as well as the name he almost made official by putting it on her birth certificate.
As you may already know, James and Julia are also the parents of a six-year-old son named Max and a three-year-old daughter, Carey.
The new addition to the family, however, is yet to have a name of her own.
‘We still have not chosen a name for her yet. After the baby’s birth I was crying, my wife was crying, the baby was crying, and the doctor asked about a name. I do not know why I said it, but I looked at the doctor and said, ‘We are going to call her ‘Beyonce.’ My wife didn’t think that was funny,’ the host recalled.
What is even funnier is that the nurse took his words seriously and started writing down the name on a form.
‘I had to go over to her and say, ‘Excuse me, there’s only one Beyonce,” he explained.

It’s understandable that they hadn’t picked a moniker at the time considering they weren’t expecting the baby for another couple of weeks.
At least they got to have this great story to tell!
‘We went for a routine check-up on Tuesday, and suddenly the doctors turned to us and said, ‘Oh no, this is probably happening today. And this baby could arrive in the next few hours,’’ Corden told his audience, adding that he and his wife were totally unprepared and panicked.
That very night James even had to host a show!
In the end, he was replaced by Harry Styles.
Considering Beyonce is not an option, what should they name the baby girl?
