The singer takes on James’ host duties as his wife goes into labour.
It’s no secret that Harry Styles and James Corden are good mates, judging by the amount of times the singer has been a guest on The Late Late Show.
But this week Harry went above and beyond, when he stepped in at the very last minute to host James’s show when his wife went into labour.
Taking to the stage, Harry announced ”our wonderful host James Corden had his baby today".
Whilst the show’s producer added: "Congrats to the Cordens. And thanks to the incredible Harry Styles for stepping in literally at the last minute. What a performance with no prep!"
Meanwhile, James tweeted: “Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world. Both she and her mother are doing great. We can’t stop smiling.”
“Thank you Harry for stepping in to host the show at 2 and a half hours notice!”

This wasn’t Harry’s first time filling in for James however, as he hosted the show back in May.
During this week’s show he made a shameless plea for James’ role saying: “I want you to know that I of course realise that this is James’ show and this is a one-time only thing... unless CBS likes what they see.” - which he followed by a cheeky wink.
To be fair to Harry, his jokes were pretty much on par with his fellow host, even addressing the viral kiss he shared with James during the recent Christmas Carpool Karaoke. Following the smooch, he joked that he and James will be having a baby.
He also interviewed actress Jane Krakowski during the show, and was a natural. Well done for stepping up Harry!
