Georgia is now eight years old.

Georgia’s parents would see their relationship end in June 2022 when Kenan filed for divorce from Evangeline.

The birth of Georgia Marie Thompson changed Kenan Thompson

Kenan Thompson says the birth of his daughter Georgia changed him in a hilarious way. The Ohio-born comedian said this during his part in an Apple TV documentary: Fathers. He also stated how his calm ended soon after the birth of his first daughter Georgia.

One day you’re not a father and the next you are. From that moment on you are just a father. And sure, my composure just got sucked out of me. I didn’t know… I didn’t even feel it, but I just started wearing black socks and shorts right away,

said the now 44-year-old actor.

Kenan also said he looked corny in stores and asked too many questions about items that were otherwise super obvious to him.

Thompson added in the interview for the documentary that he also worries constantly as he learns to calm down and tests his daughters’ resilience. Challenges arose in figuring out the warning signs, too, according to SNL’s longest-serving cast.

In addition, Kenan said while speaking to People in 2020 that the biggest wake-up call for him was how quickly everything happened to him.

Thompson said that after his daughter was born, he began to grow and mature in ways he never imagined. He also said it was great for him to see his daughter Georgia do her homework.

Thompson also shared similar sentiments when he appeared on the NBC talk show Today in 2014 Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb about fatherhood, the D2 actor said it really changed him and it was both incredible and the best thing in the world, “like witnessing a real miracle.”

Christina then took it to her Instagram to show off her daughter’s time in AGT. At the time, Thompson had received an offer to fill the role of the show’s regular panelist, Simon Cowell who was then recovering from his accident with an electric bicycle.

Apparently, both Georgia and her sister Gianna have interests in entertainment and acting.

“My big girl is one of the greatest amateurs I’ve ever seen. She’s so funny. She is 6 years old. It goes hand in hand, she’s funny and she’s also very energetic, just everywhere and just like a kid.

Kenan also added that his baby girl, Gianna, also had a really sly sense of humor. He said those were probably more from their mother, Christina’s side.
