Seth Meyers' wife delivers baby in apartment lobby

Seth Meyers' wife delivers baby in apartment lobby

"She lied down in the lobby, we undressed her and the baby was just out, the head of the baby was out", Meyers said.

Clearly moved by the whole situation, Seth became noticeably teary during the broadcast. The couple narrowly made it, and at the time, they thought it would be the most intense birth experience they would endure. "This is how fast it happened".

Seth Meyers told his "Late Night" audience Monday that when his son, Ashe Olsen, was born two years ago, they anxious he might arrive in an Uber. "Mine's pretty similar except there's a baby at home in the morning and at night, but I still go to work", Meyers said of fatherhood during the Today show in May 2016. The baby is coming.'. I'm like look, this - I know because I've been through exactly one birth. We get into the lobby of our building, I call our Uber and our Uber is outside. It was like somebody was trying to sneak a baby on a plane.

"My wife was saying, 'The baby is coming".

Life normal in UP despite Bharat Bandh call
The bus was carrying children studying at a private school in Nurpur town, 300km (185 miles) from the state capital, Shimla. The April 2 "Bharat Bandh" unified many Dalit outfits in the country against one cause - the dilution of SC/ST (PoA) Act.

"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", Seth joked about the speed of the birth. They helped cut the umbilical chord and neighbors continued to put towels in the dryer to keep the newborn warm. Seth was still obviously in shock that this all happened in the lobby of their building, which they just moved into at the end of past year. A boy, who they named Axel Strah, was born happy, healthy, their apartment building's lobby.

As Meyers recounted on his show last night, little Axel (who joins big brother Ashe Olson) was rarin' to greet the world and couldn't wait until mom and dad got to the hospital.

Meyers began his opening segment by recalling that his first son was almost born in an Uber two-years prior, before joking, "Move over that story, because that's so normal compared to what happened yesterday". The middle name Strahl is Alexi's mother's maiden name.
