has always been very honest, which is why people
adore you so much. And one of the things
you also talk about is your husband, Chris.
-Yeah. -Here’s a photo of you guys
right here. -You should show the cake again.
-What? -What if you showed
the cake again? This is my husband. -And that’s
what the cake looks like. -That’s Chris.
[ Laughter ] -He’s very handsome
and a lovely person. -He is handsome, yeah.
-But you talked about how you went, and he got tested…
-Yeah. -…and was —
and is on the autism spectrum. -Yeah. He was diagnosed
as high-functioning autism spectrum disorder. -But that has been something
that has been, like, a sum positive
for your marriage. -Yeah, totally.
That’s why we wanted — We both wanted to talk about it, because it’s been
totally positive. I think a lot of people resist
getting diagnosed and even some of their children, ’cause of the stigma
that comes along with it. But you’re not just diagnosed,
and then they throw you out. Like, you know,
hopefully if you can get help — Like, the tools
that we’ve been given have made his life
so much better and our marriage
and our life more manageable. And, so, I just wanted to,
you know, encourage people to not be
afraid of that stigma. Because, like, you know when
A.D.D. was the new thing — Like, everybody —
You’re a little embarrassed if you got diagnosed
with attention deficit. And now everyone’s like,
“I have that.” -Yeah.
-And, you know, I think there are a lot of people
with autism who go undiagnosed, when I think their life could be
better if they got those tools. -And I —
[ Cheers and applause ] It’s wonderful. -Thanks. No, but, also,
his life and his trajectory — That’s not like everybody
on the spectrum. You know?
-Right. -But that’s our story.
He’s an amazing guy. I don’t want
to make it sound like, “I’m so nice that I married
someone with autism.” [ Laughter ]
-Yeah. -Like, I love —
I fell in love with him. -Yeah.
-And he’s — you know, I wouldn’t trade him in
for anybody. -One of the great —
One of my favorite things that made my wife and I
laugh the hardest, because, one,
it was super funny, and, two, we had the added bonus
of knowing Chris… -Yeah.
-…is you talk about how he is just incapable of lying,
which makes such a great… -He just can’t — -…such a great quality
for a husband. -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] It’s a dream, but it’s also,
like, a real nightmare. You know, like —
Even — He’s here. And I came out, and I was —
Right before. ‘Cause I changed outfits.
I’m like, “Does this look okay?” And he was like,
“Well, it’s too late.” [ Laughter and applause ] He’s right, though.
-Yeah. -It was too late!
-It’s also — The other great observation
you make is you forget. Because you go,
“Oh, I don’t want my husband to be capable of lying,” but he also can’t lie
on your behalf at all. -No.
-Yeah. -No, it’s —
it’s really challenging, ’cause he can’t lie for me.
-Yeah. -You know?
Like, you need your partner to be like,
“Yeah, we do have to get home.” You know?
[ Laughter ] But he’s like,
“No, we have nowhere to be.” [ Laughter ] “Cool, Chris!
Thank you!” -Well, he’s the best,
and you’re the best. And I’m so happy you guys
are gonna have a baby. It’s the most exciting thing
in the world. -We’re having a baby! [ Cheers and applause ] -Well, I love both you guys.
-Love you. -Congratulations.
It is so great having you here.
