'Breaking Bad' Is A Decade Old And Aaron Paul Went On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' To Celebrate

Here is your daily reminder that your life is slowly slipping away between your fingers - Breaking Bad turned ten years old the other day.

Yes, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman turned to cooking up some of that sweet, sweet crystal meth a whole decade ago. How the time flies.

On the actual day (which was last Sunday) the starts came out on Twitter to remember the show. Aaron Paul - who played Pinkman - tweeted: "Ten years ago today Mr. White and Jesse Pinkman decided to start cooking crystal meth. Thank you Vince for coming up with this crazy concept."

Bryan Cranston (who played Walter White) also posted: "Just thinking about the 6 magical years on BB with our great cast and crew. I miss you all, even those Heisenberg had to kill. Vince, you're a genius and a wonderful human being. Thank you for the ride of our lives!"

It's been a big few weeks for Aaron Paul, as it happens. He appeared on Jimmy Kimmel to talk about his latest show The Path, as well as the anniversary of Breaking Bad, and the fact that he is going to be a dad.

Apparently, Paul's wife Lauren is due to give birth 'any minute now' and he is pretty happy about the whole thing.

He told Kimmel: "I'm over-the-moon excited. I love babies, I've always loved babies."

He then went on to say that him and his wife have hired a doula (nope, me neither) to help with the pregnancy and the first few weeks afterwards.

A doula (apparently) is a non-medical person who hangs around with you during the pregnancy and stays with the mother before, during, and after the birth of the child to provide emotional support or whatever you need basically.

Sounds like a pretty tough task.

Paul continued: "We got a doula, I had no idea what a doula was but she's teaching us some stuff. She said, 'First thing you need to know is never say the word relax and don't ever say breathe.' She said that my wife would most likely hit me if I do. She's just telling me what not to do."

So what will the little thing be called? Well, he's remaining pretty tight-lipped about that - although he did reveal that they have a few names in mind.

He told People last month: "We have a few names. If one of us didn't like one of the names it never made it into the pile. We have a handful of names and we're going to name her once we meet her."
