AceShowbiz - Seth Meyers and wife Alexi Ashe have something extra to be thankful for this year. The "Late Night with Seth Meyers" host made an exciting announcement in Thursday, November 24 episode of the show that he and Alexi are expecting their second child together.
The soon-to-be father of two invited his family, brother Josh Meyers and parents Larry Meyers and Hillary Meyers, to join him in the Thanksgiving episode. "A couple years ago on this show, we announced that we were having Ashe and so I wanna take this opportunity now, you guys obviously know, but my wife and I are expecting a second baby," Seth announced.
Seth's mom later revealed that her son was "sobbing" when he first broke the news to her. "I said, 'What happened? Are you OK?' And he said, 'No, no it's wonderful news, it's wonderful news.' I said, 'What is it?' " she shared. "And he said, 'Well, we're gonna have another baby.' I said, 'That's fabulous--why are you crying?' "
It turned out that Seth's been concerned about the sex of his second child. "Because for over a month I've had to pretend I don't care what sex it is, but I do care, I want a little boy," he told his mother.
On the show, Seth opened up, "That's true. I really wanted a brother for my son because I was so lucky to have one." Hillary later added, "They've always been the best of friends, two years apart and that's exactly what Ashe and Albert are gonna be, right?" suggesting that Seth and Alexis' baby is indeed a boy, who would be named Albert.
Seth, who was recently announced as the host of the 75th Golden Globe Awards, said that they "have not decided on a name," but his dad felt "strongly about Albert." When asked about the reason, Larry explained, "We've had five sheepdogs, and they've all been named Albert. And I really love the dog and I always wonder what it would sound like if it could talk. So I figure, if they name the kid Albert, eventually he'll start to talk and I'll say, 'Ah, yeah that's it.' " Meanwhile, it was revealed that Hillary's "voting for Bruce."
Seth and Alexis, who tied the knot in 2013, welcomed their first son named Ashe Olsen Meyers in March 2016.
