Kieran Culkin told his wife he "wants more" children as he accepted his Emmy Award on Monday (15.01.24).
The 41-year-old actor scooped the Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series accolade, beating out 'Succession' co-stars Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong, as well as Pedro Pascal ('The Last of Us'), Jeff Bridges ('The Old Man') and Bob Odenkirk ('Better Call Saul') and grew emotional as he expressed his gratitude for those around him, particularly his parents and spouse Jazz Charton.
He said: "I love you all so much, especially everyone in the cast. J, Alan, Sarah, Brian, every single one I love you.
I'm not going to have time, I don't want to get yelled at so... I've got to thank Jesse Armstrong for being a brilliant writer, showrunner and gentleman, thank you for 'Succession', thank you for everything."
Kieran then fought back tears as he continued: "I've got to switch to the personal really fast. I have to thank my mom for giving me life, my childhood which was great, so thank you for that.
"I have to thank my manager, Emily Gerson Saines, who I've been with about 29 years - sorry Emily, you probably didn't want me to say the number but I did. I just have to thank you for keeping my name in the conversation when nobody else was talking about me so as far as I'm concerned this is yours.
"And of course, my beautiful wife Jazz. Thank you for sharing your life with me and for giving me two amazing kids. Kinsey Sioux and Wilder Wolf, I love you so much."
He ended his speech with his request to further expand his family.
He quipped: "And Jazz - I want more. You said maybe, if I win. I love you so much."
