New dad Josh Holloway, whose baby girl Java is now 9-months-old, recently admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that though he’s trying his best to help out his wife, Yessica Kumala, there are a few parenting tricks that he hasn’t quite mastered.
“I got up and I am sitting there burping the baby and my wife scolds me,” he explained Wednesday on The Ellen Show. “She’s like ‘What are you doing?’ and I was just in shock! ‘Well what do you mean? I’m burping the baby!’ I had the gall to scold her, I said, ‘You be quiet, I’m burping the baby’ and she said ‘I’m holding the baby.’ I was burping the couch and I had a pillow and I scolded her!”
“That was it,” he laughed. “What do you say to that? There’s a reason why women have babies.”
The 40-year-old actor went on to say that though he’s “not rested” he’s “good at faking it now”. Either way, we think he looks great!
Java is the first child for Josh and Yessica, who wed in 2004.
