Professor Robert Kelly is speaking out after the video of his children interrupting his live BBC interview went viral, E! News reports.
Kelly opened up to Wall Street Journal about the incident and admitted he was absolutely embarrassed by the situation, but has since found the humor in the moment. “It’s a comedy of errors,” Kelly said.
His wife, Kim Jung-A, was in their living room recording Kelly’s interview on her phone and didn’t notice their two kids, 4-year-old daughter Marion and 8-month-old son James, slipped away to find their dad.
"As soon as [Marion] opened the door I saw her image on my screen," Kelly admitted to the WSJ.
Kelly tried to maintain his composure, but “knew it was over” when he heard his son storm into the room in his baby walker.
He explained that his wife didn’t realize the kids were gone until it was too late because of the delay on the interview.
"He usually locks the door," Jung-A said. "Most of the time they come back to me after they find the locked door. But they didn't. And then I saw the door was open. It was chaos for me."
After the “chaos” died down, Kelly and Jung-A were able to laugh about the situation. "I mean it was terribly cute," Kelly said. "If you watch the tape I was sort of struggling to keep my own laughs down. They're little kids and that's how things are."
"Yes I was mortified, but I also want my kids to feel comfortable coming to me," Kelly said.
