Robert E Kelly Says His Wife Was NOT Too Rough On The Kids; But What Do YOU Think?
Many have spoken out about the way Kelly's wife removed his children from the room, but Professor Kelly defended her actions, saying that's not how they're usually treated!
This video set the internet on fire!
Feels so good to laugh again!
Kelly cleared things up for his wife at a press conference
Professor; did your wife hurt your children when she was removing them from your study?
We would like to clear up some of the rumors and controversies around the video. Yes, the woman in the video is my wife, not my nanny. Our children were not hurt... we normally do not treat our children the way you saw in the clip.
What were you trying to do?
My hope was that she would play with the books for a few moments until the interview ended.
How do you feel the interview went?
'We thought it was just a disaster, I communicated with the BBC immediately afterward and I apologized to them. I said that if they never called us back or never asked me to be on television again, I would understand.
What did your wife think about it?
My wife and I did not fight after the blooper, we did not punish our children. In fact, we thought that no television network would ever call us again.
People say you're the poster child for working dads; what's your secret?
You have to be flexible. For example, this was my home office space and normally I hope that my children don't come in; I can get more work done. But we want our children to feel comfortable coming into the room and being able to approach their father. And that means you can't keep that strict boundary where some rooms are off limits.
And finally; can you confirm you were in fact wearing pants?
Yes, I was wearing pants!
