Seth Meyers‘ wife is a champion. She recently gave birth to their second son Axel, after an extremely short labor in their apartment lobby, not only did it give Seth an incredible story, but it showed just how many people help bring a new life into the world.
Meyer’s wife went from feeling contractions in their apartment to having the baby crown before they left the lobby. “The only way I could describe how she looked was like somebody was trying o hide a baby in a pair of sweatpants,” he said while laughing. “It looked like someone was trying to sneak a baby on a plane.”
He then canceled their Uber to the hospital, called 911. But it was too late. “I basically said, ‘We’re about to have a baby. We’re having a baby. We had a baby.’ I went from calling in an emergency to sharing good news with a stranger.”
The firemen were the first responders on the scene and helped his wife and baby until the ambulance arrived. “We have to get an apartment closer to the hospital,” he joked as he started to tear up.
He went on to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone involved, especially his wife. “My kids, they’re always going to be fine because of her.”
