Recently on his show Late Night With Seth Meyers, Meyers filled in the audience on the exciting birth of his second celebrity baby, Axel Strahl. “I called 911 and over the course of a minute conversation, I said, ‘We’re about to have a baby — we’re having a baby — we had a baby,'” Meyers said. According to UsMagazine.com, the New York Police Department and fire department arrived after the baby was born in the couple’s apartment lobby and cut the umbilical chord while their neighbors warmed up towels in the dryer for the newborn. Meyers and his wife, Alexi Ashe, welcomed their baby on Sunday. This celebrity couple was wed in September 2013 and also share a two-year-old son, Ashe. Best wishes to this new family of four!
