Being funny comes naturally to the McCarthy-Falcone family.

Husband and wife comedic duo Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone are known for their ability to make people laugh, so it’s only natural that their daughters –Vivian15 and georgette Falcon, 12 – follow in their footsteps, right? After all, the sisters have acted in movies alongside their famous parents The boss and thunder power.

Not so fast. As Melissa exclusively reported during the E! News’ Daily pop on June 6: “I think we both just want them to be doing something they really love and feel good about it.”

She continued, “It could be a gecko catcher in the Galapagos, or actors, or — they’re both very artistic. So I just want them to be happy and lead with kindness.”

“I don’t,” Ben replied hilariously. “I want them to rule with an iron fist.”

Melissa and Ben, who have been married since 2005, both star in the new Netflix series God’s favorite idiot. The idea for the series, which follows Ben as Clark Thompson, a tech support person turned messenger of God, came from Ben’s “very weird brain” many years ago.
