Kaitlin says “Axel is a little Psychopath”
In an interview with Conan, Kaitlin called her baby a psychopath and her reasons make definitely sounds like young Axel is one. The Unsupervised actress recalls a particularly disturbing incident when her husband, Rob, was out of town. After a long day and putting the kids to bed, Kaitlin sat by the TV with some wine to relax. However, after half an hour or so, she felt a finger on the back of her neck tracing her back. Olson, being alone in the house, freaked out and turned around to see Axel standing there staring back at her. Furthermore, the young Axel creepily added, “I’ve been watching you the whole time.”
Mrs McElhenney added that the horrifying incident was nothing compared to the “reassuring” words of Axel to a classmate. Axel laughed off and said, “Hope your dad dies” to a friend whose dad was in hospital suffering from pneumonia.
