Seth Meyers Recounts His Baby’s Dramatic Apartment Lobby Birth

-We love you.
Thank you for coming down. -Oh, my God.
So good to be back! -Thank you for coming down.
You know what we should get? We should get
a fireman’s pole for you. -I would love a fireman’s pole. -You’re right above us. -We could fully Wayne Manor
this entire situation. -Just pull back the Sharpie
thing, press a button — yeah. -And then I come down.
-And then you fly down. Thank you for doing this.
I want to hear about everything. We have so much to talk about. First of all,
how’s the baby baby? -Baby’s good.
The baby is, I think, 10 weeks. -Yeah.
Dude — -But it’s interesting.
He’s my second baby. So that’s why I say, “I think.” Your first baby,
you know exactly how old they are every minute. And then the second one,
you’re like, “How long have you been here?” [ Laughter ] Yeah, I know there was a —
there was a time you weren’t here,
and now you’re here. -Now you’re here.
Everything’s cool. Yeah, your baby’s already, like,
got his driver’s license. Whatever.
[ Laughter ] Tell the story, if you
don’t mind telling it again. Because it is
one of the best stories. I can’t believe
that happened to you, dude. I can’t believe it’s real,
how Alexi had the baby. And everything’s great.
The baby’s healthy. -Yeah, the baby’s great.
The baby’s a regular baby now. But my wife
fully delivered our baby in the lobby
of our apartment building. [ Laughter ] Which was not the plan.
-Oh, it wasn’t? -No.
-Oh, that’s interesting. -We were —
We were gonna do hospital. -Oh, interesting.
That’s a move — That’s a move —
That’s a choice. -Yeah,
we were gonna do hospital, and then at the last minute,
we’re like, “Everyone does hospital.
Let’s do lobby.” -“Yeah, let’s do it in
the lobby of our building.” -But we were on the way
to the hospital. And our first baby, we almost
had in an Uber and made it. And so, this time,
we were dialed in, you guys. I want to stress that
this was not us being lax about the miracle of birth.
We were ready to go. The minute
she had a contraction, we were gonna just go.
-And she felt it. -And then she just
had one contraction. [ Laughter ]
-That’s it. -That was basically it.
-That was just one and done. -One long contraction. And we got down to the lobby,
and the Uber was outside. And we started
walking to the Uber, and my wife just said, “No.
It’s not gonna — No.” And —
[ Light laughter ] There’s this thing you do
as a guy where you have no idea what it feels like,
but you think this moment calls for me to be an expert. [ Laughter ] I think it’s —
It’s known as mansplaining, where I said, “Look, I know
you think the baby is coming.” -“Let’s get in the Uber.” -“But let me tell you
how this works.” [ Laughter ] “We’re gonna go to the hospital,
and you’ll have the baby there.” And then, I look down,
and her sweatpants looked — There was a —
like it was a — There were two people
in the sweatpants. [ Laughter ] You know, um… You know
the difference between… [ Laughter ] You know how tandem bicycles — [ Wah! Wah! ] Yeah.
That was the noise she made. -Yeah, no —
-You know how tandem bicycles are different than bicycles?
-Yes, I do know that. -That was what her sweatpants —
they were tandem sweatpants. -It was ta–
[ Laughter ] -And I don’t know
if you guys know this about lobbies in buildings,
but they’re a common area. [ Laughter ] They’re sort of
a thoroughfare, no less. Like, that’s where everybody — And it’s a —
It was a small lobby. And my wife, you know,
got on her back and basically very quickly
delivered our child. -Wow!
-Very quickly. -Very fast. And then —
-And I will say I want to thank — And I did
this on my show, as well. But we had two doormen who
basically had to be traffic cops to let us have this moment. [ Laughter ] It’s a private moment.
-A private moment. Yeah, hello?
-Not just a private moment of, like, you’re welcoming
a child into the world but, like, there
are private parts involved. [ Laughter ] -Yes.
Of course there are. Yeah. -And it’s interesting. Because we have these
two wonderful doormen. But it’s been a different
experience for both of them. [ Laughter ] Because one of them, I think, he now believes
he’s our family member. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah, of course. -Like, he was there
for this moment. And every time he sees the baby, I feel like he thinks they’re
like tied together for life. -Yeah. -And then the other doorman
can’t even look at my wife. [ Laughter ] Like, for him it was like,
“I have seen too much.” [ Laughter ]
-It’s like, “Uh-oh.” But now you have
this beautiful baby boy, along with your other —
How old is Ashe? -Ashe? Ashe is now
2 years and 3 months old. Yeah.
-You know exactly to the day. -Yeah, I know exactly.
[ Light laughter ] -And you’re potty training.
-We’re potty training. -That’s fan–
-We’re nailing it. -Mine came kind of easy. My girls are like —
They kind of figured it out. -By nailing it,
I mean it’s not going well. -I understand.
Yeah, no. I heard the —
I read the sarcasm. Yeah, yeah, it’s not. He’s, uh — Yeah. -What’s your — What’s your
method of training? -Our method —
Well, we read this book, and when I say “we,”
my wife read a book. [ Laughter ] -Yeah.
No, I didn’t read… -She told me to read the book.
-Okay. -And I kept telling her
that I was reading it, but I wasn’t.
But now, because of Kindles, they can’t tell
what you’re reading. You know, in the old days,
if you were reading a Stephen King book,
you couldn’t say, like, “No, I’m reading
the potty-training book,” but now you can.
-Yeah, because it’s Kindle. -Yeah. And so she’s like,
“Are you reading it?” And you go, “Yes.”
And then you just very slowly close one,
and then open the other. -Oh, yeah, of course.
The potty-training book. -But the thing is, they say,
you know, this — the method we’re using is
keep an eye. One of us has to be watching
him, and he will let us know. ‘Cause they say, like,
babies have tells when they’re
about to go to the bathroom. You know, they basically,
like, show you somehow whether it’s like
they, you know — they cross
their knees or something. -Yeah.
-His tell is that one of us stops looking, and then,
he takes a dump in the kitchen. [ Laughter ] -It’s a good move. -And then he tells us.
-That’s a tell. Yeah, he tells you —
“Look what I did.” -But by the time he tells us,
we don’t — we know because — I think this is healthy. It’s —
Because his butt’s not that far off the ground,
but you can hear it hit. -Okay. All right, all right,
all right, okay, yeah. -It’s like — It’s like when
you get a pound of salmon and they throw it on the scale. [ Laughter ] -It’s like…
-Okay, all right! Now I have that audio,
and I can’t unhear. And, yeah. But I thought
this is super cute. -Yeah, my wife sent me this
when I was at work, and this made me real happy. -He’s potty training
on a little tiny toilet. -Yeah. -And he’s just doing some
reading — some light reading. -He’s reading
a magazine about his dad. -This is you on the cover
of TV Guide. -Yeah. And that’s an old —
that’s an old TV Guide. He’s visiting his grandparents,
who save old TV Guides with their child on it. -Oh, my God.
It’s fantastic. Congrats on that dude.
-Thank you.

Boys are so much harder to potty train then girls. My son at four would steal one of his overnight diapers put them on and hide in the bathroom to poop because he hated getting splashed by toilet water and REALLY hated the sound of The toilet flushing. He got over it but it wasn't until at least ten that he would regularly flush without me having to remind him.
