During his Late Show monologue, Meyers recalled how his first son, Ashe Olsen, now 2, was almost born in an Uber. "Move over that story, because that's so normal compared to what happened yesterday," Meyers said.

"We basically get to the steps of our building—we're in the lobby and we're walking out on the steps and my wife says, 'I can't get in the car. I'm going to have the baby right now. The baby is coming!'"

Within seconds, their second son was born. Meyers goes on to say that his wife "looked like someone who was hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants."
