Melissa McCarthy's Daughter's First Words Perfectly Predicted Her New Show With Ina Garten

No one knows how to have fun like comedian Melissa McCarthy. According to People, the Emmy Award-winning actor plans to team up with food connoisseur Ina Garten on a new special, Cocktails and Tall Tales with Ina Garten and Melissa McCarthy. The half-hour show features Garten and McCarthy catching up and shooting the breeze over Zoom while enjoying a slew of different cocktails. These two larger-than-life personalities might not be your obvious pairing, but their team-up couldn't prove more natural.

McCarthy's love of food and kinship with Garten came out in the most unexpected of places — her daughter's first words. According to Food Network, McCarthy couldn't hold back how excited she and her husband felt about joining Garten on their new show, saying, "The fact that Ben and I are having a double-date via Zoom, with our soon to be new best friends Ina and Jeffrey Garten seems like a wonderful fever dream. I mean, two of our daughter's first words were Ina and ganache...Seriously." If there's ever a perfect match made in heaven, it's these two.

McCarthy and Garten have created a show that's perfect for cocktail lovers

Premiering exclusively on discovery+ on March 26, Cocktails and Tall Tales with Ina Garten and Melissa McCarthy shows off a wide variety of cocktails perfect for the summer. According to Southern Living, the show is perfect for fans of Garten's legendary giant "quarantini" that she made in spring 2020 for "cocktail hour in a crisis" (via Instagram). According to Next TV, the special opens with Garten (Zooming from New York) talking McCarthy (Zooming from Australia) through how to make the perfect whiskey sour.

When you want to kick back, relax, and enjoy some quality time with Ina Garten and Melissa McCarthy, you have to check out this duo's powerful chemistry on March 26th. While McCarthy's daughter's first words might have been "Ina," the comedian did admit there was only one life experience that could have topped cocktails with Garten. "I couldn't have imagined how it would feel to cross 'Cocktails with Ina Garten' off my bucket list but let me tell you, second only to the day my babies were born, it was pretty much the best day of my life," McCarthy told People.
