WATCH: Seth Meyers’ Newborn Son Kinda Ruined His Uber Rating
A father’s love is only unconditional to a point in this day and age.
Seth Meyers provided his Late Night audiences with the charming New York City tale of his son’s arrival on Sunday, Mar. 27. The new father explained that his wife, Alexi Ashe, went into labor two weeks early following brunch on Easter. He installed a contractions app on his phone before loading into the backseat of an Uber where his wife was on her knees and screaming out of the window, “I DON’T LIKE THIS!”
While Meyer’s six-star driver, Tariq, kept his cool throughout their entire ride, the late night host fears that his passenger Uber rating was diminished as a result.
“My only regret is that you can’t give an Uber driver six stars because you deserved it,” said Meyers in a heartfelt message to Tariq. “I also wanna say I regret that we used my Uber app instead of my wife’s because I’m pretty sure that Tariq gave us the one star, and that goes on my record!”
Meyers revealed that they named their son Ashe Olson Meyers, which is a combination of his wife’s maiden name and his mom’s name—not a tribute to Ashley Olsen.
