Colbert is living a happy married life with McGee since the year 1993. His wife performed the role of his mother in an episode of Strangers with Candy.
The couple shares an amazing bond together. In February 2017, Colbert brought his wife on stage in an episode of The Late Show and gave her a big kiss in front of the mass and guest Leslie Mann.
"He’s so sexy. And he taught me the importance of being silly. Being silly is so important. Silly is the opposite of grief. It’s throwing yourself into a moment without care."
"You can’t always maintain your status as a dignified person — it gives you blinders. When you always expect the world to fulfill your expectations, it wears you down. It closes you off. So sexy."
The couple has three children; Madeleine Colbert (1995), Peter Colbert (1998), and John Colberrt (2002).

When asked about his parenting skills, the star gushed,
"That’s my parenting style — ‘Go watch the TV.’ I’m one of 11 children, and my mother’s parenting style was ‘There’s the TV. Go watch it. Mommy’s got 10 other people to take care of.’"
"Conversations with your kids. Just having a conversation about what interests them, or them asking you about something that interests you … You know, coming home, pouring yourself a glass of wine, and sitting there and having a conversation with your kid about how their day was. It’s not dramatic, it doesn’t seem exciting, but it’s probably the nicest part of it."
Colbert and his family live together in Montclair, New Jersey.
