Seth Meyers Recalls Son’s Birth: It Was A ‘Horror Show’


– You may have noticed that I said in the five years my wife and
I dated before we got married, the only mistake, the only
mistake I made with my wife, is that I made her wait five
years before I married her. That is too long for a
woman of her caliber. I made a mistake. I also appreciate right now,
that if you’re watching this with a woman you have dated
for five or more years I have ruined your night. (crowd laughs) Right now you are staring at me, but you can tell and
she is staring at you. (crowd cheers and applause) – Welcome back, I’m here
with Seth Meyers y’all! – So happy to be here! – [Kelly] Yeah! Okay so that was a clip
from his stand up special, Lobby Baby, which is
the greatest title ever and it’s on Netflix, not Nightflix. – Yeah. – [Kelly] Just Netflix. That brings us to our next
cocktail, the Stand Up, in honor of his first Stand up special, bring out the drinks. – [Seth] Oh my goodness. (crowd cheers and applause) – So it’s got tomatoes, because
none were thrown at you. – Uh huh, oh that’s good. – In your stand up special. – (mumbles) bacon, ’cause
you’re bringing home the bacon as we discussed
– [Seth] There we go. – [Kelly] You getting drunk for the money. – [Seth] Yeah, yeah. – [Kelly] It’s not your fault. Okay, so here we go.
– Here we go. – You ready, cheers.
– To the stand-up, yeah. Cheers.
– Cheers to stand-up. Cheers to your stand-up. – That’s really good. – [Kelly] Okay but you’re
not taking this one. – Well, the thing about a
Bloody Mary is you want it to be your first drink of the day. – They took my– Oh! (applause) – Aye! (applause) – Challenge accepted. – We were made to drink together. – We were so made to be drinking buddies. – I know. – Now why did you decide
to do a stand-up special since you’re on TV all the time. – I always love doing
stand-up and this special is very much about the moment of my life I’m in right now with my little boys and my incredible wife,
and I just felt like that was what the material was about and it was either now or never. And I was just really glad
to have commit it to tape and have it be this
thing that’ll live now. – That’s cool too that
they’ll be able to watch that like later in life, that’s
so cool to have that. – Yeah, yeah, I’m worried
that my second son, who is the lobby baby. My second son was born in the lobby of our apartment building. – I was getting there (mumbles)
why you named it Lobby Baby. – [Seth] I’m worried it
will give him a complex when he realizes that I named a special, yeah, there it is. – [Kelly] I’m just
worried because every time you and your wife procreate,
getting the child out seems to be the issue.
– [Seth] Yeah. – You’re like racing in an Uber, or your– – Yeah, the first one almost in an Uber, and the second one fully in the lobby. – [Kelly] Yeah.
– Yeah. – It’s just like they’re
ready when they’re ready. – When they’re ready,
they’re ready to come out and I will say, you know my wife has said given the choice of 36 hours in a hospital or 30 seconds in a lobby,
you take lobby every time. – [Kelly] I would take lobby. – The only thing I’m very happy
about is that the second one was the lobby baby,
because if the first one was in the lobby, I would of lost my mind. Not that I didn’t, but because any and when you watch any baby – At least you’ve done it once. – Yeah, ’cause when you
watch the first time you watch a baby getting
born, you’re like, oh, this is everything about
this is terribly wrong, And then, but the doctors
aren’t freaking out, ’cause it’s normal. – Some people think it’s magical I am not one of those people. – [Seth] Well I’ve said this – I just think it’s really gross – When I watched my first son be born, it was the most magical
thing I had ever seen – [Kelly] Really? – I have since seen a still
photo of it, horror show. (Laughing) (crowd laughing and applauding) – [Seth] Like in the moment, I was like Oh my god the Majesty of life! And then it was like ‘Here’s
what it looked like.’ I did not remember all that. – [Kelly] You should not
have photographed it! – I should not! Who took a picture? (Kelly Laughing) – That is something that should – Who was free to take a picture? – Pass by The doctor. – Who’s the weird guy in the back like, Hey I’m Reggie, you want me to take this? – [Kelly] I got this! It’s a good one. – I got this it’s a good one. – Alright well, it’s
time for drink number 3. – Drink number 3 already
I haven’t eaten my bacon. – We’re talking about kids. Well that’s okay we’ll double fist it. (coughing) – We’ll double fist it. – Wooo – The kiddie cocktail is
in honor of your kids. – Oh my god that’s so lovely. – Okay, so I’ve got
juice, freshly squeezed from a kids juice box. Sweet and sour mix because
kids can go either way. – That’s very true. – Whoa is it ever. And a sugar rim because kids love sugar. – There you go. – and look at the fun straw. – It is a fun straw. – It makes you smile. – This brings me back to my frat days. (audience Laughing) – The crazy straw, me and the bros – See I’m just catching
up on college with you – So how’s your son doing? How’s he doing as a big brother? – He’s good, every now and then we’ll meet older people and they’ll say Oh I had two boys. They’re all grown up now,
but I had two little boys and my older one will say, did the older one hit the younger one? And I’m like, Buddy you’re giving a little too much away to these strangers. So every now and then he gets a little cause the little one will
take things away from him but other wise he’s a good older brother. – No my five year old is definitely socked my three year old in the face, yeah. – [Seth] Yeah. – And she’s the girl! She socked the boy, he did something and then she punched him and
then looked at my husband and was like- and kinda scared but
like, What? And then like Oh god, like, yeah. – Do your older ones do this thing where they are performatively
nice to the younger one when other people are around. Like he’ll be like, oh
Axel, I love you baby Axel. – Yes! – OK You’re not that good an actor. – And then she’ll run up and be like, I gave my strawberries to Remi. And I’m like, do you want a Prize? – [Seth] Yeah. – Okay thanks for being nice. – Also they’re my strawberries,
that I gave to you. – Exactly! So are your kids getting
into the holidays. – They’re getting excited, they celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas. And so every time something comes up we will tell my son,
when he wants something we’re like you just have
to wait for Hanukkah you just have to tell us what it is. He’s very specific things, Like he saw every one thousandth cab in New York City is a green cab. Because it’s like one of those eco-cabs – Oh okay. – So he wants like a green taxi cab He want’s things that are – Like a real one? – No, Yeah. Obviously a real one. No uh. But he’s like he wants
a toy green taxi cab – Okay I was like- – But those are like hard to find, like that’s not easy. So he thinks of things that would be easy except he has another weird twist on it that makes it like a scavenger hunt toy. – Yeah – Yeah I mean it’s such an
exciting time to have kids, the holidays. – [Kelly] It is! – Because I will say before I had kids. I had reached an age where I
started to hate the holidays. – And now I like them again – Really? – yeah. – Scrooge! – I was single forever and
loved the holidays without kids. – You and I might have
a different world view, and that’s okay. – Yeah (laughing) that’s okay! See America we can do this. – [Seth] Yeah, we can get along. – We have different points of view. – Yeah one of us is cynical. – He’s wrong and I’m right. (laughing) – No, It’s almost Thanksgiving, I bet your kids did something cute for Halloween though right? – Our youngest son dressed up like Pizza and it was very exciting – [Kelly] Oh my god! – [Seth] And this is him seeing himself in the mirror a bunch of times. – [Kelly] They love that. – [Seth] They love it. And – [Kelly] My Son And
Daughter Talked To Themselves in the mirror like they’re
acting out a scene. – [Seth] Like he just
keeps getting surprised by – That pizza – I wanna know, like you live in L.A. and like two mirrors in an
apartment is not a big deal. It’s a big deal in New York City – We’re fancy – We have an apartment with
two mirrors it’s a big deal. – Makes it look bigger. – Yeah absolutely, You
need it in New York. – In New York, there so, I KNOW! I just come from a different
world, that’s always so small, every time you go into like a place I’m like oh my god I’m claustrophobic. – I know it’s very tiny. – Because I grew up in the country. – Even I lets be honest,
your dressing room here is, because you’ve been on my show your dressing rooms here are massive. – They are (laughing) – At my show they’re very small. – We have a little more
real estate than New York. – Yeah that’s true and
I just want you to know that I appreciate it. – I’m not mad at all, 7 season in and my
dressing rooms are smaller – Very small.
