A few years from now, James Corden could be taking part in a bit of carpool karaoke – with a car-load of his own kids!

The TV presenter and his wife, Julia Carey, have welcomed their THIRD child into the world – a little daughter to go with the son and daughter they already have.

James, 39, announced the happy news on Twitter last night – and his fans were over the moon.

Corden presents The Late Late Show in the US, but it sounds like he had to drop everything while actress and charity worker Julia gave birth.

He later tweeted: “Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world. Both she and her mother are doing great. We can’t stop smiling. Thank you Harry for stepping in to host the show at 2 and a half hours’ notice! x x x.”

The “Harry” in question turned out to be none other than One Direction star Harry Styles, who stood in admirably for his fellow Brit while Corden was in the birthing suite.

And the pop star has clearly seen the new arrival with his own eyes. He told the studio audience: “She looks a lot like James. Mainly because James looks like a giant baby.”

One fan wrote: “Congrats!!!! That’s amazing. I’m so happy for you and your wife.”

Another added: “How lovely. A new baby for Christmas – congratulations!”

And a third chirped: “Happy birthday, baby girl Corden! Congratulations! Today’s my mom’s birthday too! If looking for names, hers is Barbara.”

Corden has been friends with Harry Styles ever since the One Direction star and his band took part in Corden’s legendary Carpool Karaoke – where he invites A-list celebs to sing in his car with him.

And according to reports, Harry will star in a special Christmas edition of the popular singing skit.

Not only that, but we understand the two Brits KISS during the clip (well, it is Christmas, after all).

Just as long as Harry remembers that James is married with kids – lots of them!
