Seth Meyers is a father for the second time, and new son Axel Strahl made his arrival on April 8 in dramatic fashion. Meyers told his audience Monday the story of how he and his wife, Alexi Ashe, were heading to their Uber to take them to the hospital when his wife informed him that she couldn't make it, reports People. (See the clip here.) Back they went into the lobby of their apartment building. "I called 911 and 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," Meyers said. New York City police and fire crews arrived soon after the birth and helped cut the cord, and both mom and baby are doing fine. (More Seth Meyers stories.)
