Stephen Colbert is a superior father and he has the proof to back that up. “I have a mug that actually verifies that I’m the world’s best dad,” he told BuzzFeed. “That’s a mug. That’s not me talking. You can’t just buy those.”

The Colbert Report host took time to chat via phone while promoting his new DreamWorks animated comedy, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, in which he plays a less-than-perfect father named Paul Peterson. “It’s like Midnight in Paris, but for kids,” Colbert said of the film.

Outside of the realm of animation, the comedian has three children (ages Madeleine 18, Peter 15, and John 12) with his wife Evelyn McGee. Below, Colbert talks about what it’s like to be a famous dad — the good, the bad, and the most hilarious moments.

  • I can’t believe how big the Colbert kids are now! I am sure Stephen is kidding when he says his older ones “don’t like him,” his whole family appears to adore him and understandably so. Even with Stephen’s huge celebrity, they seem like really chill and well-adjusted kids. That is a great accomplishment.
