On Monday, January 24, Mulaney took to IG to post a two-month birthday tribute to his “tiny man.”

In every photo, Malcolm is in fact “stuck” to Mulaney in a baby body carrier.

Fatherhood looks great on the comedian, who is coming up on the one-year-anniversary of his completion of rehab.

The Blast previously reported on the actor/comedian checking himself into rehab in December 2020 after relapsing on cocaine and alcohol.

Mulaney stayed at a rehab facility in Pennsylvania from December 2020 to February 2021.

Upon checking out, a source told Page Six the actor was “doing well” and continuing to work on his sobriety as an outpatient.

“John has completed 60 days in rehab and now he’s in outpatient sober care,” the source told the outlet at the time of his rehab departure. “He is doing well, although he is still not ready to return to work.”

Upon getting out of rehab, Mulaney filed to legally separate from his estranged wife, Anne Marie Tendler, last May.

News of their separation was confirmed by their reps to Page Six on May 10, 2021.

From Tendler’s statement, it appears it was Mulaney who wanted to end the marriage and separate.
