There is no doubt that he has brought us some of the most quality night time TV out there, seeing as that is well-known information, let’s move on to a topic that may not get as much coverage as the comedian himself. So, sit tight as we check out the people he probably leaves at home to be on Late Night TV, Conan O’Brien’s wife, his sister, and his kids.
Conan O’Brien’s Wife
You may be wondering who was saddled with the delightful duty of being Conan’s wife, well wonder no more, her name is Liza Powel O’Brien and she has been married to the star since 2011. The couple actually met on TV, she appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in an advertising skit involving Foote, Cone & Belding, where she worked as a senior copywriter.
They dated for over two years before they finally decided to tie the knot at Powel’s hometown of Seattle. Despite the period of time it took for them to get married, Conan says that it was love at first sight for him and that he knew she was ‘the one’ from the start.
He actually told Piers Morgan, ‘ Somewhere, in the vault at NBC, there’s footage of me literally falling for my wife on camera.’ There is not much out there about Conan O’Brien’s wife out there but one thing that is very obvious is that they are very much in sync and have a wonderful life together.
Conan O’Brien’s Sisters
The star doesn’t just have one, but he has two sisters, so get ready for the double trouble the pair seem to be packing. The first of the pair is Kate B. O’Brien and she was born in 1964. Conan is not the only one who is making his paper off showbiz, she is an actress and she is known for her parts in The Fighter (2010), Ted 2 (2015) and Late Night with Conan O’Brien (1993).
The other sister is none other than Television producer, Jane O’Brien and she was born in 1967. She has worked as a producer on shows like Futurama and The Simpsons, so you know that she has that funny bone that works for Conan so well. She is evidently the baby of the family, but we use the term loosely seeing as they are all full grown adults.
The siblings are evidently doing pretty well for themselves in Showbiz.
Conan O’Brien’s Kids
The star has two children with his wife, Liza and their names are, Neve and Beckett O’Brien. How time flies, Neve, who is the first child and only daughter was born on 14 October 2003, that makes her 13 years old this year. On 9 November 2005, Beckett who is the only son and (obviously) second child in the family, was born.
When the kids were just toddlers, Liza revealed to the general public that Conan is a softie as a dad. She gushed over the fact that he, ‘ …really just wants to snuggle and make up with them immediately. And they’re good – they’re young still, so they haven’t really earned bad cop treatment yet. But when they’re teenagers, it will be interesting to see if Conan can wing it!’
Well, now that there’s one teenager in the house. let’s see how the talk show host holds up. Hopefully, Conan O’Brien’s wife still shares the details with us. This section would not be complete if we do not mention Greg Keating, a college student back in 2014 who stepped forward as Conan O’Brien’s illegitimate son, he even went as far as asking for tuition money.
He claimed that his mother worked three floors above the Late Night studios when he was conceived and she was mysteriously fired from her job after getting pregnant. He ended the hilarious video by saying, ”What I’m trying to say Conan is that we need each other,’ Keating says. ‘You need the warm embrace of your son and I need an easier financial path through college. So I love you, dad.’
It didn’t seem to cause much of an uproar, Conan simply replied by tweeting, ‘ A kid in New Jersey is falsely claiming to be my illegitimate son. For the record, I have three children: Neve, Beckett, and @RonanFarrow.’ He got a few laughs out of it, his family got a few laughs out of it and all was well in the universe.
