“It’s great to be with you all. Goldie’s awesome…I wake up today just profoundly moved,” he said during the call.

“Watching Siri over the last 24 hours — not to mention during this pregnancy, but being 9 months pregnant at this time, you can just imagine the extra anxiety that has brought Her heroism…she’s a superstar, she’s a superhero. I wake up enamored by her.”

He also revealed the reason for his daughter’s name.

Patricia is an homage to his late mother, who died back in 2017.

“It would have been my mom’s birthday tomorrow, so that worked out to be quite nice,” he said.

As for Goldie, he said he was looking for Irish names after the results of his Ancestry DNA kit confirmed his “98 percent Irishness.”

“We had a shortlist of names that we liked but nothing was sitting its neck out. And I thought about it and I said, ‘You know, this is our fourth kid. She seems like a pot of gold at the end of our family rainbow. I told Siri, ‘What do you think about Goldie Patricia?’ And that was it. It was just one of those things, we knew.”
