Now that’s a Mother’s Day surprise!
Melissa McCarthy hosted NBC’s SNL for the fifth time and during her monologue, she had mothers from the audience stand up and be honored. She picked one of them, a woman named Joan, to go on a 90-second on-air tour backstage.
On the way, they encountered recurring guest star Alec Baldwin, who was getting ready to reprise his role as President Donald Trump, cast member Kyle Mooney, musical guest HAIM, SNL pages, a man in a sombrero holding a tray of tequila shots, a llama and…Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who gave Joan hugs.
“Hi! Oh my God! McCarthey said. “What are you guys doing here?”
“You invited us,” the actor deadpanned.
“Yes, yes I did,” McCarthy responded.
The actress led Joan to the stage, telling her, “You’re gonna host SNL.”
“You’re a mom. You is kind, you is smart, you is important,” McCarthy continued, quoting Viola Davis‘ character’s line from The Help.
And Joan knocked it out of the park!
During the episode, McCarthy reprised her SNL recurring guest role of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
At the end of the episode, McCarthy was honored herself, for joining the SNL 5-Timers club. Veteran former cast member Steve Martin appeared onstage.
“Listen, welcome to the 5-Timers club, Melissa!” he said, handing her a special 5-Timers jacket. “Congratulations!”

“There are few words to fully convey this feeling of complete happiness,” Abby wrote at the time, alongside a photo of her smooching her fiancé. “Daniel Smyers, knowing and loving you has been the most rewarding part of my life thus far and continuing our journey together as your wife will be an honor. I love you so much my heart could explode!!! Y’all WE’RE ENGAGED!!!!!”
Smyers wrote on his own Instagram page, “We’re gonna save all the animals together, FOREVER. I love you, @abbydlaw!”
They welcomed a baby boy, Asher James Mooney, this past March.
Both members of Dan + Shay crashed another couple’s wedding in Florida earlier this month and surprised them with a private show. The couple, Madeline Roberts and Brandon Bateman, even danced their first dance as the duo performed “From the Ground Up,” A Taste of Country reported. They later performed their latest single “How Not To” as well as cover of Taylor Swift ‘s “You Belong With Me.”
