As the host of NBC’s reality competition, The Voice, Carson Daly is accustomed to screaming fans and the chaos of set life.
But off-camera, Daly’s main focus is his family: fiancée Siri Pinter, 32, and the couple’s two children, Jackson James, 4½, and Etta Jones, 16 months.
“After this many years, I know who I am. My life is not television,” Daly, 40, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’m a family man first and foremost. Everything I do in this business, it all pays off when I come home.”
And with a self-proclaimed “insane” life — it’s packed with his own radio show, his late night talk show, Last Call, and a gig on Today – home life is also Daly’s cherished escape.
“Our family time is like happy hour,” he says. “Siri and Etta are cooking and I’m making kiddie cocktails with Jack — that’s our thing.”
