John Oliver has basically the greatest meet cute story ever, involving The Daily Show, the 2008 Republican National Convention, and the risk of arrest and deportation. The meet cute resulted in Oliver’s marriage to Kate Norley, an Iraq War Veteran, who Oliver called one of his heroes on Veteran’s Day yesterday:
“I’m incredibly proud of her for everything that she did and has done and is continuing to do and supporting everyone who she has served with,” Oliver told the New York Daily News. “So, yeah, I have more skin in the game regarding veterans’ issues than you might imagine. I’m a British impostor! She went through a lot and I got to hear all the stories what it was like from her. She’s one of my heroes.”
Today, news arrives that one of his heroes has given birth to his child, as Norley delivered unto the world a baby Oliver.
No word on how it will affect this Sunday night’s scheduled episode.
