Seth Meyers is a dad!
He and his wife, Alexi Ashe, welcomed their first child together Sunday, and the Late Night With Seth Meyers host opened up about their newborn on his show Tuesday. "My wife gave birth to our first baby, everybody," he told the crowd, who cheered and clapped upon hearing the news. "Really it was mostly her."
Meyers told the story of his baby's birth, informing the crowd that Ashe Olsen Meyers arrived two weeks early, much to the surprise of the couple. He and his wife went to brunch and returned home when Alexi began to feel uncomfortable. "About every 10 or 12 minutes my wife would say her back hurt and I would go rub her back," he explained. "I'm bad at recognizing patterns or else I would've known those were contractions."
Because it's 2016 and we're living in a digital age, the new father turned to technology to help his wife. "Once we realized what it was I downloaded a contractions app because I'm on top of it," he joked. The two tracked her contractions for a little while but they "were speeding up pretty quickly," so he helped her get dressed to go to the hospital, only to have her water break all over the floor.
"Wow," he said in disbelief. "That sounds like what water would sound like if it broke. It is incredibly well named for what it is."
