Sudeikis and Wilde began dating in 2011, and he popped the question a year later. They ended their engagement in November 2020, and the amicable exes share two kids, Daisy, who will turn 5 later this month, and Otis, 7.
The reminiscing began when DeGeneres revealed that Sudeikis allowed Daisy to shave off the mustache he grows for his role on Ted Lassoafter filming ended.
"Just so she knew it was me. I paid her," he quipped of Daisy. "... It was one of those clippers."
The actor felt OK letting his tot take on the job, because he'd previously allowed Wilde and DeGeneres to cut his hair during a 2019 episode of the daytime talk show.
"You and Olivia cut my hair one of the last times I was here," he recalled. "Then Daisy shaved my mustache. I don't care. I'm going to have Otis wax my chest. That'll be the hardest gig of all. It's a jungle down there."
During the episode in question, DeGeneres brought out Wilde to convince Sudeikis that his hair was getting too long.
"It's long. It's the same as my hair. There's only room for one of these in our house," Wilde told Sudeikis, before leading him over to a barber chair to get his hair chopped.
Sudeikis took the moment in good fun, even after Wilde admitted that she wasn't "good with the scissors."
