He and Kelly Ripa also joked about turning into the parent while on vacation, asking them to "bring the sunscreen, the sunglasses, something to read."

David then told them that he'd even given his parents the advice to watch The White Lotus before going on the trip, which led to awkward conversations regarding the explicit subject matter.

"Are we going to The White Lotus?" was what they asked him, which he clarified to them didn't actually exist, although Kelly quipped that he should've said: "No, but we're getting as close as we can!"

David and Kelly share a close relationship, with their families often vacationing together, discussing in the interview how his work would often disrupt their trips.

The World News Tonight host recounted one incident where he broke away from their holiday to prepare for an interview with the Pope, although Kelly used it as a way to praise her friend.

She recalled telling her three children at the time: "I was like 'I wanna show you something. This is a person who's on vacation and I want you to pay attention to how hard he works. He is all about work and proper preparation.'"
