Seth Meyers had quite a story to tell on last night’s talk show — he and his wife Alexi welcomed their second child, a baby boy. And the birth story was insane.

His wife suddenly went into labor and while preparing to get to the hospital, discovered that there was no time to spare.

Seth said of his conversation with 911: “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.’ I went from someone calling in about an emergency to sharing good news with a stranger.”

They named their newest addition Axel, Scandinavian for “my father is peace.” His middle name, Seth explained, is to honor his wife’s grandparents, who were liberated from a concentration camp and met in a hospital in Austria the next day.

Seth went on to thank the many people involved in helping with the very sudden birth of their son and teared up as his thanked his wife, while joking, “I’m getting choked up thinking about how brave I was.”

Axel joins big brother Ashe, who was born in 2016.
