Will Ferrell and Viveca Paulin Say Farewell with 'Free Bird'

01/26/2010 at 05:00 PM ET

Who’s that Ronnie Van Zant lookalike and the pregnant hippie dancing beside him? Why, it’s Will Ferrell and Viveca Paulin, of course! The comedian and his expectant wife gave Conan O’Brien a musical send-off Friday evening, performing Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s “Free Bird” on the host’s final show — complete with cowbell!

Will, 42, and Viveca, 40, are already parents to Magnus, 5 ½, and Mattias, 3, and expect a third son this month.

That was so cute and funny. The look on Viveca’s face during the performance cracked me up.

mrsh on

I loved that! Viveca is so beautiful, and Will is hilarious.

I excited to here the name of baby #3

Angela on

I had no idea that was his wife! And I honestly thought it was a fake belly when I watched the show Friday night.

Mary on

How fun it must be to have him as a dad!

JMO on

Angela you were not alone. I must have forgotten that he was having another baby so I didn’t know who this girl was but all I kept thinking when he was kissing her is oh lord that is some kiss I hope your wife isn’t mad!!

and with that video, they just became my favorite celebrity couple. seriously folks, any woman willing to go on live television dressed like a hippy at 9 months pregnant while her husband sings free bird with a blonde wig and cowbell is cool by me.

i’m really looking forward to the third mini-ferrell! can’t wait to hear the name 🙂

Alicia on

I didn’t get that performance at all. It was so gross when they were making out. I’m glad Conan had fun on the guitar though.

jenny on

Viveca is beautiful, I will agree. I was laughing at their little stint on Conan’s farewell at first, but then it seemed like the two of them were hogging Conan’s farewell a bit. Maybe that was the camera person’s fault… JMO

nettrice on

I think it needs more cowbell!

Jessicad on

She has to be a little silly too if she’s married to Will Ferrell! That was hilarious. Is it just me or does Conan look kind of sexy with a guitar? 🙂

sat on

nice send-off! Conan looked very happy!

momof4 on

LOL!!!! I was cracking up Friday night! They were great and I agree….More Cowbell!

Danielle on

OMG whenever I see this it makes me so emotional I thought it was real nice of Will and his *very pregnant* wife to do that for Conan.
When I saw this for the fist time on Friday it had me in tears…
I really hated to see Conan’s premature farewell..But he made the most of it and really made it epic.

P.S I wish Will and Viveca the best of luck with there 3rd baby!!

mmh on

Dude she was a really good sport to do this!!!! It was hilarious!! She made me feel much better about having to get into a swimming suit at 8 1/2 months pregnant the next day!!! =)

Sarah on

I think the new baby will have a name similar to Markus. Maybe something odd like Marques.

Tracy on

I knew it was his wife – thought it was hilarious! Especially when they were making out – so funny! Oh yeah – we were waiting for the cowbell too! :o)

Amanda on

Funny, I watched this and didn’t know that that was Will’s wife and I didn’t know that she was really pregnant, I thought that was all part of it. Too funny. Congrats Will!

Dolores on

I can just imagine their boys in 15-20 years sitting and looking at this and saying either, “Our parents were SO cool!” or “Our parents were SO weird!” Ha! What a well-matched couple they are. And his lovely wife looks as if she’s about to pop! I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s not having the baby as we speak! Way cool.

Kristen on

They are adorable. I wonder if she still finds him amusing or if she’s totally over it. 🙂

annie on

you can’t watch that video if you’re not in the United States. That really annoying! I’d have liked to watch it:(

Donna C on

A week later, I’m still touched and amused by the tenderness, emotion, and outrageous fun. Thank you Conan, Will, and Viveca. Best wishes on the new baby boy! Conan – don’t stay a stranger.

Donna C on

Keep it going!
I love Conan, Will, and Viveca. Max Weinberg and LaBomba must also stay around. I can’t watch you enough!!!!!
Cheers – you guys!

She gave birth just a few hours later!!
