The actor shared the first pictures of his children, Spike and Sunday, on The Late Show With David Letterman Thursday. Myers named his 3-year-old son after his father, explaining, "Spike is very common Liverpool nickname is your name is Eric." He's also a fan of Spike Milligan, the poet and comic. Why did Myers and his wife Kelly Tisdale choose the name Sunday? "Me and my wife Kelly hate Sundays—I'm not even kidding—and we wanted to turn it around and make it a good thing." Regarding the 4-month-old's middle name, the Shrek star said, "Molly is because of my auntie Molly in Liverpool, England, who was my dad's sister but more like my grandmother who I love very much and she's my guardian angel."
Myers called his son "super funny" before sharing a cute anecdote.
"He has a weird accent. I'm from Toronto—I have a Canadian accent—and my wife's from Boston, but we live in New York City. He has this weird accent," 51-year-old Myers said before imitating his mini-me.
"When Sunday came home, he was like, 'Oh, this is great. Is she staying here?' I said yeah," the Austin Powers actor recalled. "I said, spike, one day, Sunday will be your best friend. And he said, 'We'll see.'"
Myers, who directed Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, said he tries to "involve" his son as much as possible when it comes to taking care of Sunday. "I'll say, 'Baby Sister'—because he refuses to call her Sunday; it's always Baby Sister—I'll say, 'Baby Sister needs a diaper,' and it's like four feet away. And I said, 'Can you be a big brother and get the diaper?' And he goes, 'I'm on it!'" he shared. "He runs over there and he does this thing as if it's really hard, and he [huffs and puffs]. It's all a bit! As if he had to go under barbwire, swim a lake, take enemy fire. It's like four feet away! He knows it's a joke, which is fantastic. I said, 'You're a great big brother, Spike,' and he turns around and goes, 'Just doing my job.'"
Sounds like Spike inherited his father's sense of humor!
