Seth Meyers’ Creative Baby Name Is a Sweet Tribute to the Women in His Family
Is it just us, or have all the hosts of the late night shows been sort of slaying it on the dad front lately? Just last night, James Corden made us laugh with his adorable, dad-approved boy band, and earlier this week, Seth Meyers announced the adorable arrival of his first son.
When he returned to his show on Tuesday night, Seth opened by telling the hilarious story of his wife Alexi Meyers’ delivery on Easter Sunday. Basically, it involved a screaming Uber ride, a hospital full of nurses wearing bunny ears and Seth Meyers having an uncontrollable case of the giggles he couldn’t shake, no matter how much it annoyed his wife. After revealing that rom-com approved story of his son’s birth, he went on to chat about the baby’s name.
He told the audience, “We named our son Ashe. I can’t think of a better way to honor what my wife did than naming him after her. The middle name is Olson which is my mother’s maiden name. To be able to name him after those two women…” He goes on to address what everyone’s next thought is by saying, “A couple people have said to us, Ashe Olson? Do you think people will think you named him after Ashley Olsen? And to them I have said, ‘No one will think that because I’ve long been a Mary-Kate guy.'” LOL. Judging by that epic dad joke, we’re thinking Seth is going to be just fine on the parenting front.
