Seth Meyers’ wife gave birth to their son in their apartment building lobby
On Monday’s Late Night, host Seth Meyers shared the incredible story behind the birth of his son on Sunday.
Over the course of 11 extremely charming minutes, Meyers reveals that his wife Alexi Ashe, a human rights lawyer, gave birth to their son Axel on the floor of their apartment building lobby.
“This is how fast it happened,” he told the audience. “I called 911 and over the course of a minute conversation, I basically said, ‘We’re about to have a baby. We’re having a baby. We had a baby.'”
The rest of the story involves a massive group of firefighters, compassionate neighbors, and a few photos from the scene.
Naturally, Meyers choked up talking about his wife’s bravery on Sunday: “That kid’s gonna be fine forever because of her.”
Congratulations to Meyers and Ashe on the birth of their second child, and on having the greatest icebreaker story of all time.
