All's well that ends well: Jack Black is blaming his wife, Tanya Haden, for causing him to be the "bean spiller" of news that Angelina Jolie is expecting twins
– much to Jolie's relief, he says.
"It was my wife's fault ... She said, like it was common knowledge, 'Angelina's having twins' – because my wife is a triplet, and she was interested in that," Black, 38, told Today
host Meredith Vieira on Wednesday's show.
As for Jolie's reaction: "She was relieved. She wanted to spill the beans, but didn't know how to and I did it for her," Black said.
The Kung Fu Panda
star also has his own baby news to spill, and Vieira admitted to Black that she misspoke earlier – claiming his newborn son
has been named Jack.
"Not true," Black said. "It's Thomas. I said we named the baby after me, but I didn't say that my actual name is Thomas." Thomas's big brother Samuel turns 2 this month.
The hands-on dad also said that he was in the delivery room for the birth. "I'd like to think that I helped," he added.
