Los Angeles : BBC News is today in news not because of any breaking or exclusive but because of one viral story that involves the news channel itself.

The whole world saw it when Professor Robert Kelly’s kids interrupted his BBC interview last week.

As seen in the hilarious footage, the Professor was speaking to the news anchor when his toddler swaggered into the shot, followed by other baby in bouncer, and then with the wife trying to shut the whole thing down.

The video immediately went viral garnering many pageviews. On Tuesday the family finally made an appearance again on the BBC – but this time they intended it to happen.

The wife Jung-a Kim joined her husband, along with their children Marion and James, to talk about becoming unintended household names.

Telling her side of story, she said, “We understand why people find it enjoyable, catching a regular family off guard. It’s funny, we understand that. I hope people just enjoy [the video], not argue over this. I’m not the nanny, that’s not true. I hope they stop.”

The family also mentioned that their first response was to feel mortified and that the BBC would never call again.

They agreed that the whole thing had been a little bit stressful but that they are fine and getting better.
