Like any mom, Emme Rylan is happy to help her kids with their homework. However, you’d think that an actress who has been on GENERAL HOSPITAL (as Lulu), GUIDING LIGHT (as Lizzie), and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS (as Abby), would be a lot better on camera! “It was a three-minute interview Jackson had to complete for class that took us an hour and a half to complete,” Rylan admitted on Instagram, sharing a video clip of her and her 11-year-old son degenerating into non-stop giggles.
The blame for the infectious laughter rests partially on Rylan’s 9-year-old son, Levi. “Levi, we told you not to bother us!” Jackson manages to get out. And Rylan laughs: “Get out of the door!” The mother and son start to compose themselves, but as soon as Jackson tries to say “okay,” Rylan immediately busts out laughing again, admitting, “It’s not okay!” The pair get it back together only to both look off-camera in unison and shout: “No!” Jackson attempts to regain control by starting the interview, but as soon as he says, “Okay, this is my mom…” Rylan again bursts out into giggles and can barely breathe! (Rylan revealed in her post that they eventually locked Levi out of the room so Jackson could finally complete his assignment.)
Fans and friends flooded the comments to let Rylan know that their laughter was contagious and how much they loved the video. “OMG, this is the best!” exclaimed Tamara Braun (ex-Kim, GH; Ava, DAYS OF OUR LIVES). “Making me giggle watching. Hope you added outtakes to the assignment.” Rylan’s former Y&R castmate Hunter King (ex-Summer) declared: “That was the cutest/sweetest/most heartwarming thing I’ve seen. Honestly, that was so dang cute!”
And Finola Hughes (Anna, GH) probably spoke for many fans when she shared: “You’ve always had the most contagious laugh! I miss it…”
We’re just glad Rylan is keeping us entertained on social media while we wait to see her on TV again. Of course, with her jokester sons — and adorable four-year-old daughter Dakota — keeping her this busy, work might be a little difficult to schedule in right now!
