Remember on Friday, when your day suddenly became a whole lot brighter because of 2 awwwdorable kids who interrupted their father’s serious Interview on the BBC? Ever since then, you have been wondering what happened that lead to that unforgettable moment. Today, Robert E Kelly, his wife Kim Jung-A and their two children, Marion and James, broke their silence to The Wall Street Journal.
They explained what happened that lead them to becoming international sensations overnight. The father told the newspaper that it all boils down to “a comedy of errors.” Papa Kelly normal locks the door when he does interviews from his office, but for some reason he didn’t do that day. His wife was in the living room with the kids watching and recording her husband with her phone as he was on TV doing the interviews. Since she was focusing on the television, she didn’t realize that her 4 year old daughter had gotten up and ran away. She also didn’t notice that her 8 month son followed his sister like he always does, until she saw them on the television a few seconds after it happened because of the time delay. Horrified by what was happening, she tried to sneak into the room and get their children out of there. As we know, she wasn’t that sneaky. The reason why she came in the way that she did is that she was only wearing socks that caused her to glide on the hardwood floors as she rushed to her husband’s office.
When it comes to Marion, her father explained why she danced her way into the room. He said, “She was in a hippity-hoppity mood that day because of the school party.” Kelly also revealed that he knew his interview was over the second he saw his baby roll on in.
What he didn’t know is how popular that video was going to become and how his life would change. In fact, when he was done with the interview, he sent the BBC an apology letter. They actually loved it so much that they asked him if they could put it online. At first, he said no but then they decided to let them to do it. Once they did, his phone and social media blew up and they shut it all off because they want their normal lives back. They are just a normal Family and it shows because parents all over the World knew his pain. That is why we can’t stop watching his family. Thank Gd for “comedy of errors,” because it is just what we all needed!
