Maya Rudolph makes her children play music!


Maya Rudolph is well on her way to becoming a stage mother.

This week on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the 49-year-old actress opened up about her new Apple series, Loot, as well as her four children, admitting that she forced them all to play music.

Maya believes that her four children, whom she shares with partner Paul Thomas Anderson, have a musical talent because she is the daughter of singer Minnie Riperton and songwriter Richard Rudolph.

“I think they have the gift of music and don’t realize how great they are, so they keep it to themselves,” she told host Seth Meyers.

“I force them all to play, to have piano lessons,” she continued.

Maya continued, joking about them starting a band during COVID lockdowns.

“Well, because I have four kids, I was like, ‘Guys, it would be great if you played those drums,'” she explained. ‘I mean, there’s a piano, a bass, a guitar, and an amp in there,’ she says.
