Seth Meyers' Son Was Just Born in His Apartment Lobby
The Late Night host tells the unbelievable story
Seth Meyers wife Alexi Ashe just gave birth to a healthy baby boy - Axl Strawl Meyers - in the lobby of their apartment building in New York. The Late Night With Seth Meyers host told the incredible story on tonight's show, revealing the quick timeline that led to the unusual birthing location.
Following increasingly quick contractions, Seth, Alexi and her doula were rushing to get to their UBER to get to the hospital, when Alexi revealed it was already too late.
"My wife just says, 'I can't get into the car, I'm going to have the baby right now, the baby is coming,'" Seth said. "My wife is saying, 'The baby is coming. The baby is out.' At which point [the doula] looked and then looked at me and said, 'The baby is out.' I looked at my wife, and the only way I can describe the way my wife looked, was she looked like someone who was hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants."
The baby was delivered quickly by Alexi and her doula, as emergency personelle didn't even get there until after the baby did.
"I called 911 and over the course of a minute conversation, I said, 'We’re about to have a baby—we’re having a baby—we had a baby. It was...I went from someone calling in about an emergency, to just sharing good news with a stranger."
The host went on to show pictures from when the emergency teams did arrive, and we seriously still can't believe this happened!
