John Mulaney took son with Olivia Munn to Saturday Night Live set & shows off rare backstage photos from hosting gig
BEFORE hosting Saturday Night Live, John Mulaney brought son Malcom to the show's iconic set and snapped behind the scenes pics.
The Big Mouth star announced that he was having a baby with Olivia Munn after completing a stint in rehab following a relapse.
After appearing on SNL, John took to Instagram to share a series of sweet photos of his son on set.
In the first of those photos, the Chicago native posed in front of a Studio 8H sign while holding his son in his arms.
Another photo showed Malcom, three months, looking over his father's shoulder as he stood before Seth Meyers who appeared to be opening a dressing room door.
John also snuck in a photo of himself holding a large sandwich. Malcom was not featured in the snap.
The photo dump included several pics of the stand-up comic rehearsing his skits with the SNL cast.
There also appeared to be a few photos from the night of the show.

John captioned his post: "There is no better way to spenda week."
Saturday's show marked his first appearance on SNL since returning from rehab.
During his opening monologue, John addressed his addiction battle.
He opened with: "It is amazing to be hosting Saturday Night Live for the fifth time.
"For many, many reasons, I'm grateful to be here tonight after a very complicated year it is wonderful to be in a place that's always emphasized sobriety and mental health.
"Since I last hosted, different things have happened. In December (2020), I went to dinner at a friend’s apartment. But it was not dinner. It was an intervention for me — my least favorite kind of intervention."
"When I walked into my intervention, I knew right away that it was an intervention.
“Do you know how big of a drug problem you have to have if you open a door and see people gathered, and your first thought is, ‘This is probably an intervention about my drug problem?’”
The TV writer revealed that he had to dump his drug dealer, going into detail about their final exchange.
“It’s called ‘breaking up with your drug dealer.’ I texted my main dealer, Arvin — I shouldn’t have said his name, but that’s OK, you don’t know him.
“I said, ‘Hey, I’m deleting and blocking you. I’m sober now, I’m never gonna buy drugs again.
“But I’m really polite, so I didn’t know how to end the text, so I said, ‘But thank you, for all the nights that became days and your inspired professionalism.’
“Before I can delete and block him, he texts me back and goes, ‘Hey, I’m so proud of you. I’m so happy that you got sober. You know, I only bought drugs to sell to you, because I was worried about you, and I didn’t want you to get worse stuff off the streets.'”
“So, I text him back, and go, ‘You sweet man. You only bought drugs to sell to me? Did you sell drugs to other people?’
“He said, ‘No, I’m a painter. We talked about this.’ Ladies and gentlemen, I have no idea how I know this person. So I texted him, ‘How did it come to be — that you sold me drugs?’
“There are many tales of drug dealers turning innocent people into drug addicts, but I might be the first drug addict to turn an innocent man into a drug dealer.”
John went on: "Life is a lot better and happier now. I have a 12-week-old son.
"I'm very excited, he is a pretty cool guy for someone who can't vote. His legs are like little calzones, and I want to eat him."
Reflecting on his son's birth he said: "We were in the delivery room. My girlfriend had just given birth to him and he's crying a little, so they bring him over to this warmer on the other side of the delivery room, and they put them on the warmer under this big bright light and light is just shining in his eyes.
"He just looks up at the light and [he squints]. He was annoyed, but he didn't say anything. I was like, 'That's my son.' A police man in an uncomfortable situation, but he's not going to make a fuss. He's a very good boy."
John announced that Olivia was pregnant with his child in 2021 during an appearance on Seth Meyer's late night show.
He shared: “I went to rehab in September , I got out in October, I moved out of my home from my ex-wife.
“Then in the spring I went to Los Angeles and met and started to date a wonderful woman named Olivia. … And we’re having a baby together.”
Malcom was born in November 2021.
