Lloyd Bishop/NBC(NEW YORK) — Following his monologue on Monday night, Late Night host Seth Meyers announced that his wife, Alexi Ashe, had given birth to a baby boy — in the lobby of their apartment building!The couple and their birth coach tried their best to make it to the hospital in time, but, according to Meyers, the baby had other plans.“Even our doula…was saying, like, ‘Look this is — you’re going to be fine’…My wife was saying, ‘The baby is coming…the baby is out,’ at which point, [the midwife] looked and then looked to me and said, ‘The baby is out.’”Adds Meyers, Alexi, “looked like someone who was hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants.”This is how fast it happened, joked Meyers: “I called 911 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 praised his building’s doormen, who, “were basically were stopping neighbors from walking into their own lobby because of what was happening. And, the other thing was my wife was like facing — her legs were like facing the elevators…thank God no one came down because that would made for so many awkward interactions for the rest of the time.”Meyers and Ashe tied the knot in 2013 and have an older son, Ashe, who’ll turn two years old on March 27.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

You only have one shot at this.”Fortunately, the surprise went off without a hitch.“It went as smooth as possible. There wasn’t one hiccup,” he said.Noll is home for good now, and said he is very much looking forward to relaxing and seeing his pup.“I’m going to sit in front of the fire and hang out with my dog,” he said. “I’m going to go grocery shopping and bunker down for the rest of the week.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico ABCNews.com(BOSTON) — For Staff Sergeant Mathew Noll’s family, the best part of the Celtics game last night wasn’t the fact that Boston won, but rather, it was the moment their son surprised them on the basketball court home from his seven-month deployment to Iraq, Jordan and Qatar.“I knew I was going to react big, but they were hitting the roof,” Noll, who is in the U.S. Air Force National Guard, told ABC News of his family’s emotional reaction.Noll is a teacher on the civilian side. One of his former students helped him pull off this monumental surprise, which was roughly two months in the making.“One of my seventh-graders from last year was the one who facilitated all of this,” he said. “I had them doing a lot of community service projects where they’d be the one reaching out to companies to facilitate a project, like Make-A-Wish. He, having the knowledge of pulling something off like this, got the ball rolling with finding the members of the Celtics’ front office and he must’ve found the right person and sent the right email. He’s been great.”Noll originally told his family he was returning home on Feb. 10, but unbeknownst to them, arrived home much sooner.“I spent a few days hiding out at friend’s houses,” he said. “I knew it would be worth the wait. That’s what I kept telling myself.”And it certainly was. His mom, Susan Noll, could hardly contain herself when she saw her eldest son entering the arena.“There are no words. I’m still in shock,” she said. “It all felt like a dream. Like, ‘Oh my God, that’s really him. It was surreal. It was just surreal. My husband is retired military and my other son just finished basic training, and to be a military family and to have it happen like it did was just great.” Related
