As Corden doted over his new baby girl, he asked his close friend Harry Styles to host that evening's show. There was just one catch: the singer had less than three hours to prepare for his temporary role as late-night talk show host. Still — because he's just that kind of guy — Styles gamely agreed.
After leaving the hospital, where he was visiting with Corden and Carey, Styles headed to the set and later told the Late Late Show audience the great news. "Just half an hour ago, James and his wife Jules had a beautiful baby girl," he said. “[I] was just at the hospital before I came to fill in and she looks a lot like James — mainly because James looks like a giant baby.”
Styles went on to fulfill his hosting duties with ease, charming the audience with witty jokes and interviewing guests Owen Wilson, Jane Krakowski, and Joel Edgerton.
It shouldn't come as a shock that Styles was willing to help Corden out at a moment's notice. After all, the singer made his affection for the TV host known when he planted a smooch on his lips in the December 11 episode of Carpool Karaoke. The cute video is basically an early Christmas present, so watch the bromance blossom below.
