What a week it鈥檚 been for Seth Meyers! Just one day after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that the funnyman would be hosting the 2018 Golden Globes, Meyers revealed that he and his wife, Alexi Ashe, are expecting their second child.

The proud dad-to-be shared the news last night on his talk show, Late Night With Seth Meyers. He was joined by his parents, Larry and Hilary, and his brother Josh, which should have been our first clue that it was a special episode.

鈥淚 want to take this opportunity now [to tell you that]鈥 my wife and I are expecting a second baby,鈥 he told the audience. When the crowd let out a thrilled cheer, he added, 鈥淰ery excited. Thank you! Very excited.鈥

Afterward, his mother revealed how she found out about the upcoming arrival. 鈥淚 get the phone call, and my Seth is sometimes a crier. 鈥 He鈥檚 crying on the phone and he can鈥檛 catch his breath, he鈥檚 sobbing, and I said, 鈥榃hat? What happened? Are you okay?鈥 And he said, 鈥楴o, no, it鈥檚 wonderful news. We鈥檙e going to have another baby.鈥 And I said, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 fabulous! Why are you crying?鈥 He said, 鈥楤ecause for over a month, I鈥檝e had to pretend that I don鈥檛 care what sex it is and I do care, I want a little boy!'鈥

The comedian, who married his wife back in September 2013 and became a dad to Ashe in March 2016 (yep, that鈥檚 little Ashe wearing the turkey costume and dancing to Beyonc茅), backed up his mom, saying, 鈥淭hat鈥檚 true, I really wanted a brother for my son because I was so lucky to have one.鈥 Aw!

The grandparents even have a named picked out: Albert! Why Albert? Well, as Meyers鈥 dad explained, 鈥淲e鈥檝e had five sheepdogs and they鈥檙e all named Albert. We have Albert V. And I really love the dog and I always wonder what it would sound like if we could talk.鈥 (This is NOT the explanation that we were expecting.) He continued, 鈥淚 never hear, like, a voice from a cartoon or a movie or a child that [makes me think], 鈥楾hat鈥檚 what Albert would sound like.鈥 So, I figure if they name the kid Albert, eventually he鈥檒l start to talk and I鈥檒l say, 鈥極h, yeah, that鈥檚 it.'鈥

Congrats to the growing family!
