Olivia Munn gets something she will treasure just before Christmas. didn’t ask for — a middle-of-the-night alarm clock! The Newsroom actress, who shares 1-year-old son Malcolm Hiệp with John Mulaney, opened up about her long night with their teething baby, and their not-so-effective attempt to make the most of it.
“We were awakened by a screaming Malcolm…” Munn wrote on her Instagram Story, in a timestamped 12:14 a.m. post early this morning. The video shows Munn yawning as he reads to their son, who is wide awake.
“He’s teething again…” she shares in the next post, which shows Mulaney reading a Richard Scarry book. Malcolm’s still dressed in his dinosaur sleep sack (wishful thinking on the parents’ part, perhaps?) and immersed in the story.
Munn continued: “Looks like we’ll be having a Christmas molar.” She is definitely not thrilled. At 12:44, the Violet actress shared another update, this time just a selfie of her giving a look with “The Sound of Silence” by Disturbed singing, “Hello darkness, my old friend” paired with it. Ah, we’ve all been there!

Later, she finds it difficult to get her glasses out of her hair. “It’s too f-in late for this nonsense,” she wrote, as she tries fruitlessly to untangle her glasses from her messy bun. It’s why is it so hard to do everything in the middle o’ the night.
Anyone who has ever slept in a long time knows that the morning is always coming. Mulaney and Munn decided to take their son out for winter fun when Friday morning dawned snowy and cold. (You can guess what Malcolm did with it!)
“Put on snow clothes but came right back inside bc the windshield is 🥶,” Munn wrote, over a video of Malcolm struggling to take off his adorable white hat. Every mom has been through it. The kids get so excited about getting into the snow gear. It takes them around 20 minutes to put it on. However, they cry when they feel the cold air. She’s trying to make the magic happen, despite teething setbacks, but it’s so hard!
This isn’t the first time Munn has shared a painfully relatable post about motherhood. In August, she shared that she was in “a teething tunnel nightmare” with Malcolm. She also mentioned the fact that she hasn’t even been able to text back friends.
“This will also serve as a group text to anyone I haven’t texted back,” Munn wrote. “Will get back to you in however long it takes for this tooth to come out.” Moms get it, don’t worry!
It can feel so overwhelming when your baby is in teething pain and there isn’t much you can do. Mulaney and Mulaney are hoping Santa will soon bring them a quiet night.
