Seth Meyers: My Son Was Born … In Our Building’s Lobby!

Get ready to laugh yourselves to tears … and maybe tear up with genuine emotion towards the end of this sweet, wonderful video.

Seth Meyers and his wife welcomed their second child into the world! it's a wonderful story.

But it's also a funny one, because it just so happens that their new baby was born in the lobby of Seth's building.

Viewers have watched Seth Meyers break down over Trump's electoral victory. That was what young people would call a "mood."

This story is much, much happier.

Seth reminds viewers that his son, Ashe Olsen, was nearly born in an Uber. 

"Move over that story, because that's so normal compared to what happened yesterday."

As it turns out, his wife, Alexi Ashe, gives birth quickly.

Very, very quickly.

They spent all day in the park and, when his wife began having contractions, they — along with the doula who was with them — decided that they should gradually make their way to the hospital.

Then, back at their apartment, his wife went into labor. Meyers called a car so that they could go to the hospital.

But nature had other plans.

"My wife just says, 'I can't get in that car. I'm going to have the baby right now. The baby is coming.'"

And she wasn't wrong.

"My wife was saying, 'The baby is coming. The baby is out.'"

Axel Strahl was born on April 8.

He describes what his wife looked like, at this point.

"I looked at my wife. The only way to describe it, like someone hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants. It was like somebody was trying to sneak the baby on a plane."

That is a hilarious image.

Obviously, they helped his wife undress … and she promptly finished giving birth on the floor of the lobby.

"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.'"

He says that it began as an emergency call and then became a situation in which he was simply sharing good news with a stranger.

Seth also gave a huge shout-out to everyone who helped — the firefighters, the doorman, and everyone who was simply understanding.

"I should point out that we have not lived in this building for a long time at all."

So he felt extra awkward — at least, after the fact, when he was able to process anything aside from the birth of his child.

"We just moved in at the end of last year. I'm so glad that we're already co-op approved, because I don't know."

He didn't care for the Uber driver charging him, especially considering that his wife would have ended up delivering in the Uber, which would have absolutely been worse for the driver than being summoned without anyone getting in.

Uber has since refunded Seth's money and sent him and his wife congratulations on the birth of their second son.

Seth's voice breaks as he describes how wonderful his wife is and how he knows that Axel and Ashe are both going to have good lives and grow up to be wonderful people because of her.

He also shares that while they chose the name Axel because they both like the name, they chose the name Strahl because his was the name of his wife's grandparents.

They were Holocaust survivors.

Seth Rogen’s Mom Tweets About Sex: What Did Seth Say?

There is nothing more embarrassing than having your parents on social media.

They are all up in your business, checking where you’ve checked into. It can be pretty crazy. 

It can also be pretty funny, and Seth Rogen is learning the hard way that his mother will embarrass him at every single opportunity thrown her way. 

In a hilarious exchange between the mother-son, Seth reacts in shock to his mother chatting about sex to her 41,000 followers. 

No, that was not a typo. Seth Rogen’s mother is all over Twitter commenting about sex. 

“Falling asleep after sex is like shavasana after yoga.!,” said Sandy Rogen on Twitter on July 5, shocking everyone who laid eyes on the tweet. 

People tweeted that they were waiting to see Seth’s response, and, well, he did not take it all that well. 

“Jesus fucking Christ mom,” the 35-year-old actor clapped back at his mother. 

However, Sandy was not in an apologetic mood and went with a witty response to her son. 

“It’s just an observation of life!” she responded. We’re actually very surprised the tweet did not disappear from existence. 

Whenever celebrities tweet embarrassing things, they are generally swiftly deleted. 

“Whatever!!,” Seth replied, apparently irate by the whole thing. We can’t even begin to imagine how shocked and embarrassed he was at the time, but it was still hilarious. 

“Whateverrrrrrrr mom mm!,” said back, clearly wanting to keep the exchange going strong. 

Another family member named Danya chimed in with their thoughts on the matter. 

“Seriously. I actually gagged,” the family member said. 

“It’s gnarly,” Seth responded, while his mother said: “Lame!”

Something tells us there are going to be some awkward silences the next time Seth meets up with his mother. 

What do you think about all of this?

Sean Hannity: FIRED From Fox News Over Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory?

If you’re familiar with Sean Hannity, you know that he’s the national news media’s answer to the former fat kid who went from bullied to bully after making third string offensive line, and who now makes up for lost time by shoving twice as many kids into lockers.

Hannity used to beat up on his on-air partner, Alan Colmes, who was clearly meant to play the role of the Fox News audience’s idea of a typical liberal: meek, bookish, always wrong.

But these days, Hannity is on his own, and so he’s forced to terrorize less likely victims.

Like, say, the families of promising young men murdered in their prime.

As you’ve likely heard by now, a DNC employee named Seth Rich was tragically shot dead at the age of 27 in July of last year.

Police have concluded that Rich’s murder was part of a botched robbery attempt, but naturally, the tin foil-hat-wearing nut jobs who brought us #Pizzagate and Alex Jones heard the words “murder” and “DNC” in the same sentence and immediately became fully erect.

Having long ago exchanged his soul for a profitable share in the 49-65 demo, Sean Hannity has decided in recent weeks to force Rich’s family to relive the grim details of their son’s murder in service of a conspiracy theory that his own network has renounced.

Yes, Fox News officially believes there’s no connection between Rich’s murder and the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

(Ya know, because why in the hell would there be?)

Additionally, Rich’s family has publicly asked Hannity to stop politicizing their son’s murder and dragging his legacy through the mud.

But at first, Hannity refused to let it go.

Not only because it was great for whipping up a frenzy at retirement communities all over the country, but also because he had some great sources on his side:

We’re talking about folks like international fugitive Julian Assange and a hacker named – we sh-t you not – Kim Dotcom.

Move over, Woodward and Bernstein! Assange and Dotcom are not members of Tracy Morgan’s entourage on 30 Rock, but rather totes legit journalists here to steal your crown!

Of course, following the firing of Bill O’Reilly, multiple sexual harassment scandals, the departure of Megyn Kelly, and the death of Roger Ailes, Fox News is on shaky ground these days.

Many advertisers who aren’t thrilled with the idea of terrorizing parents who recently lost a child have already jumped ship, and Hannity was forced to issue an on-air pseudo-apology earlier this week.

Now, Hannity has announced some unexpected “time off,” which is the Fox News-speak equivalent of when your parents say they’re taking the family dog to live on a farm upstate. 

Hannity addressed the rumors that he’s being canned by claiming (like O’Reilly and Kelly before him) that his vacation was totally planned and he’ll be back before you know it.

“ANNUAL Memorial Day long weekend starts NOW,” Hannity tweeted, adding, for clarification, that he has not taped his “last show.”

Yes, friend of the working man Sean Hannity might be in the midst of a tireless effort to expose the political scandal of a lifetime, but sometimes you just have to take a five-day long weekend to get your chillax on, ya know?

Hopefully, Sean gets the R&R he needs, and returns ready to stoke the flames of some Des Moines meth-head’s dangerous paranoia.

After all, the parents of murdered young people aren’t gonna bully themselves.
