Kristen Wiig has played some tough audiences, but nothing is harder than getting her two kids to laugh.

On Thursday, April 3, the comedian, 50, appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and spoke about how motherhood had affected her comedy. Wiig — who shares her 4-year-old twins, Shiloh and Luna, with husband Avi Rothman — said that she's had some mixed results when joking around with her kids.

“I’m definitely trying hard at home with them because they’re not — they don’t always think I’m funny," the Palm Royale star admitted.

“I remember one time, my daughter, she was eating and she had potatoes. And she was like, she was playing with the potatoes and saying it was like a boat, or whatever. And she was like, ‘Look!’ And I was like, ‘Oh is that a bo-tato?' " she recalled, while speaking to Clarkson.

"And I thought it was funny. And the way she looked at me, I was like, 'I’m so terrified. You’re never gonna have a sense of [humor],' " the mom of two said. "I mean it’s not that funny. But the way she looked at me was just like, 'No.' She was like, ‘No. No more.’ ”

Last month, Wiig opened up about her path to motherhood while speaking to The Hollywood Reporter. Looking back on her experience with in vitro fertilization (IVF), the actress recounted what a "struggle" it was.

"It was such a struggle," Wiig said of the process. "When you go through it, you meet other people who are going through it, and it's almost like this secret little — the whispering conversation at a party. It feels like not a lot of people talk about it."

"It is such a private thing, but maybe it doesn't have to be," added Wiig, who seldom opens up about her family and also chooses not to be on social media. "It's part of my story and part of how I got my amazing family."
