Do John Oliver and Kate Norley have children?
Oliver and Norley are parents to two sons, with their latest being born in 2018.
The couple kept the birth under wraps, with Oliver revealing it during an interview with People at the 2018 Emmy Awards Governors Ball.
When asked where he was going to keep the Emmy he won for outstanding variety talk series, Oliver replied: “I have no idea! We have a three-month-old, so as far away from the three-month-old as possible.”
Jimmy Fallon congratulated Oliver on his son’s arrival during an episode of his show.
He also added: “I gotta be honest, I didn’t really know about this baby until I talked to you backstage.”
In response, Oliver explained why he and his wife chose to keep the birth a secret from the public, saying: “Yeah, well, we didn’t really announce it because it doesn’t matter.
“To me, it matters a great deal, let me just make that clear.
“But just like, publicly, it just doesn’t feel like it’s worth making — this is not a royal baby, in terms of how far in line he is to the throne.
Adding: “It’s a peasant, I have a peasant child. So it didn’t even cross my mind that we should make a public thing about it, cause that seemed weird.”
What is John Oliver’s net worth?
Oliver reportedly has a $30million net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The outlet reports that his annual salary for Last Week Tonight is $8million.
