– Hey Steve, I got a question. My wife and I have been
married for two years, and she’s now 15 weeks
pregnant with her first child. (audience cheers) – Oh, okay.
(audience cheers) – Lately though she’s been riding this emotional rollercoaster, and I don’t know how to
sometimes respond to it. For example, she would
cry at the drop of a hat, or she would obsess
over her growing tummy, which is barely even big right now. And Steve, I know you’ve
been through this before. What are some tips to being
the best supportive husband during this time?
(audience goes aw) – Well okay, Why are y’all saying “Aw, that’s cute?” (audience laughs) First of all, you don’t bring
it up on a national TV show. (audience laughs)
(audience claps) If you don’t think you
gon’ hear about this during the pregnancy,
you wrong about that. (audience laughs) “Then you went on Steve
and told him I was crying “and sitting up here like
something wrong with me! (audience laughs)
Yeah, this your first mistake,
but I appreciate you ’cause you’re young and
you’re trying to find a way to make it work. First of all man, you did the
right thing about her stomach, you know, she’s talking about,
’cause women’s shape changes, but you gotta reassure them
that pregnancy is beautiful. Because pregnant women
(audience applauds) look beautiful.
(audience applauds) Women have the ability to do
something that no man can do. – Right!
(audience laughs) – They can produce a child.
(audience applauds) No, seriously, seriously.
(audience applauds) And I’m not just saying
that sucking up to you, this real talk. You have the ability to
make another human life. That, that, you the winner. (audience applauds)
That tops– (audience applauds) I don’t care how big I get in life. I don’t care how much money I make. I don’t care how many awards I get. A woman can make a baby. You have nothing, fellas, that tops that. (audience cheers)
Nothing. (audience cheers)
So that’s good right there. (audience applauds) So you gotta be complimentary of it. You say she just starts crying sometimes. Yeah.
– Few times a day. – Yeah, but when she cries,
that means you start crying. (audience laughs)
(audience claps) Now listen to me carefully. You’re not in a win situation.
(audience laughs) Even though they’re carrying the brunt of it, there’s
nothing we’re going through compares to what they’re going through producing a child, so our job as men, you
just have to deal with it. Stop saying you don’t get it. It ain’t nothing for you to get. (audience laughs) Stop saying you don’t understand. You can’t understand. Men kill me when they go “I can’t understand what she’s doing.” You can’t have a baby either
dog, so what we talking about? (audience laughs)
I know good and well you can’t understand. (audience applauds)
Stop saying that, and just sit there and wait
and whatever she want, get it. We’ll be right back. That’s what I would–
