You probably know Jake Johnson best as Nick Miller from Fox‘s New Girl. The American actor, comedian, film producer, and screenwriter currently stars in HBO Max‘s Minx.

Of course, everyone knows that Jackson Wang actually already has a loving mom and dad who are very supportive of him. They have a great relationship, and Jackson has even been living with them in China recently.

Yet, like all of us, upon meeting Jackson, Jake Johnson and Natasha Leggero couldn’t help but fall in love with him (but in a parental way)!

Recently, the singer, dancer, and businessman Jackson Wang was in the United States promoting his new single “Blow.” There, he made history at 2022 Coachella as the first Chinese artist to perform on the main stage.

It was during this period that he met the American actors. The three guested on American singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson‘s NBC daytime show The Kelly Clarkson Show.

The Kelly Clarkson Show interviews one guest after another, but each stays for the following guest’s interview. So, since Jackson’s interview was last, the previous two guests were already present.

He told the story of how he left a successful athletic career in fencing to become a K-Pop idol. Yet, it took convincing his parents for seven months because they were originally concerned for his safety in the music industry.

They told me about like ‘This entertainment… No, they’re going to kidnap you and put you in a cave…’

After finishing the story, Jackson realized huge gaps between him and the other guests. So, being the personable person he is, he asked if it was necessary and could they be closer.

We have to sit this far?

Jackson’s charm at that moment captures everyone’s hearts! Jake Johnson immediately pulled Jackson in closer to be by his side. The two then brought Natasha Leggero over so that the three shared the one couch. In just a few seconds, the actors “adopted” Jackson.

We want to adopt him!

Jake Johnson went into dad mode right away after that. He reassured Jackson and told him what every kid wants to hear from their parent.

Nobody’s going to kidnap you, son. There’s no caves for you. You made it! You made it, kid!

Later in the interview, Jackson promoted his single “Blow” and his upcoming album MAGIC MAN. He encouraged everyone to check out his music, including those sitting next to him.

If you have time, please check it out.

Jake Johnson replied that he has not only already checked out “Blow.” He is actually a listener of Jackson’s music, proving already to be a “supportive and proud dad!”

I have, yeah, I listen to your music.

And Natasha Leggero didn’t need convincing to listen to Jackson’s music, of course. She already loves him!

I will do anything you say. I wanna adopt you. He’s so vulnerable and cute!

Since the episode’s premiere, Jake Johnson posted on Instagram, advertising it. He included a sweet “family photo” and message referencing the “adoption.”

It got a little chaotic in the comments, though, because apparently, mom and dad weren’t on the same page after all…

Jackson, always with the witty responses, commented too!

Well, no family is perfect, we guess!
