Seth Meyers’ newborn baby Axel was seen for the first time with his beaming mother, just four days after he was born.
Mother Alexi Ashe gave birth in a dramatic fashion on Sunday April 8 on the lobby floor of the couple’s Manhattan apartment when the baby arrived much sooner than expected.
Axel is the second child for the couple, who share two-year-old son Ashe Olsen Meyers.
Just four days after giving birth the 34-year-old lawyer was seen smiling as she left her $7.5million duplex.

Crowded house: ‘I looked at my wife. The only way to describe it, like someone hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants,’ Seth said on her speedy birth
The glowing mother was accompanied with her mother Joanne Ashe on Thursday as they stepped out of the apartment with both children.
The mother-of-two smiled as she strode out in black sunglasses and a black peacoat, her hand protectively holding her newborn’s head.
Her older son Ashe sat in a stroller while newborn Axel was held close to her chest in a baby sling.
Ashe could be seen reaching out his arm towards the mother as the family walked in the New York streets.
The family was headed to the doctor’s office.
On his late night program, Meyers revealed details of baby Axel’s wild birth on Monday’s show.

‘Wake up, totally normal Sunday. Go to brunch. We’ll go to the park. My wife starts feeling something. We’ve been talking to the doctor. We have a friend, our friend Neelu is, she’s a doula. She’s like a midwife. Talking to her. Everything sounds fine,’ said Meyers.
‘But we’re thinking today is the day. We’re going to work our way to the hospital. But again, nothing, 20 minutes apart everything’s fine.’
That all quickly changed however when Meyers got word the baby was coming, and much faster than he or his wife had anticipated.
‘The only way I can describe how my wife looked was she looked like someone who was hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants. It was like somebody was trying to like sneak a baby on a plane. And so then we’re — like, we bail. We’re not going to leave,’ explained Meyers.

‘So we walk back in and we had to decide, do we go into the lobby or back on the elevator. Those are terrible options when what you’re looking for is a hospital. Because neither of them are very close to a hospital.’
He continued: ‘So my wife basically decided for us and she went and lied down in our lobby. And — and we just sort of like created like a semicircle around her and you know, we undressed her and the baby was just out. The head of the baby was out. I called 911. This is how fast it happened. I called 911 and 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 shared a photo of his wife and their new son Axel surrounded by EMTs in the lobby as well as an image of his new son on Monday.
