The “Succession” star and his wife, Jazz Charton, welcomed their second child in August.
Kieran Culkin and his wife’s newborn son – Wilder Wolf – have determined a unique name, but he was unnamed for seven weeks.
While appearing in Tuesday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, the actor remembered the process of naming his second child and explained why it took several weeks before he and his wife, Jazz Charton, finally settled down at Wilder for their baby boy. which will be three months on Wednesday.

“My wife wanted Wolf. She fought hard for Wolf,” Kieran, 39, began. “We found it in the hospital the day he was born, and we thought, ‘That’s great.’ [we thought], ‘Let’s torture ourselves for about seven weeks’, disagreeing with names before we get to the name we chose. Because we did not know if we were getting a boy or a girl. We had a long list of names. “
“But when we were in the hospital, she had to have this antibiotic in her,” he continued, adding that the antibiotic had to “take hours to take place” before Jazz could give birth. “[But] she is told: ‘Oh, you crowns actually now. You can have this baby right now, but that means you’ll have to stay an extra day in the hospital because you did not get all your fluids, or you can just, you know, keep it inside for an hour and an hour. . half so you can go home a day early. ‘”
The “Succession” star said the Jazz decided to “keep the baby inside” for an hour and a half so they could go home a day early. The waiting period gave the two time to decide on a name for their then unborn child.
“She’s lying in bed and we have a dry whip board and we’ve just gone through all the names we’d been thinking of,” Kieran recalled. “And we thought, ‘Let’s focus on girl names because we like them.’ We narrowed it down to two girl names we really liked, and we agreed that it should be one of the two names if it’s a girl and if it’s a boy we’re confused. “
“And we got a boy and spent seven weeks arguing over names.”
The couple – who also share daughter Kinsey Sioux, 2 – welcomed Wilder in August, with the Jazz announcing the news on Instagram a month later.
“A month with our perfect little man 17.8.21 #gettheepidural,” Jazz wrote along with a series of photos, including one of her holding the newborn in the hospital.
Also during his appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Kiernan said he and his growing family are increasing in size and getting a larger apartment, revealing that they are moving out of the one-bedroom apartment he has called home in 20 year. The Emmy nominee said he has lived in the apartment since moving out of his mother’s house when he was 19.
Kieran said he and Jazz had to give their daughter the bedroom because she “had trouble sleeping.” This forced the two to sleep on a mattress “on the floor.”
“We’ve been sleeping on it a bit for the last year and a half, two years,” he said.
The “Igby Goes Down” star then recalled the moment Jazz, who was heavily pregnant with Wilder at the time, told of their life situation.
“There was one day in particular where I came home from a long day [at] work, and my wife is now like the seventh month pregnant, “Kieran said.” The place is a mess because I left it a mess because I had to go to work all day and I came home and I tried to explain like: ‘ I’m a little too tired today to clean up. Is it okay?’ and she says, ‘Yes, that’s fine.’ “
The Golden Globe nominee said he saw “mess” around him and how his pregnant wife “lay on a mattress on the floor”. Kieran apologized to his wife, who had the rather funny – but downright honest – answer.
“She says, ‘You know you’re in a hit TV show, right? We do not have to live like this,’ ‘remembered Kieran, who stars as Romulus’ novel” Roy in the Emmy-winning series. ” Succession. “
“But we’re on our way out,” he added, telling Ellen, “We have an apartment, yes, a bigger one.”
