by at .

Get ready to laugh yourselves to tears ... and maybe tear up with genuine emotion towards the end of this sweet, wonderful video.

Seth Meyers and his wife welcomed their second child into the world! it's a wonderful story.

But it's also a funny one, because it just so happens that their new baby was born in the lobby of Seth's building.

Viewers have watched Seth Meyers break down over Trump's electoral victory. That was what young people would call a "mood."

This story is much, much happier.

Seth reminds viewers that his son, Ashe Olsen, was nearly born in an Uber. 

"Move over that story, because that's so normal compared to what happened yesterday."

As it turns out, his wife, Alexi Ashe, gives birth quickly.

Very, very quickly.

They spent all day in the park and, when his wife began having contractions, they -- along with the doula who was with them -- decided that they should gradually make their way to the hospital.

Then, back at their apartment, his wife went into labor. Meyers called a car so that they could go to the hospital.

But nature had other plans.

"My wife just says, 'I can't get in that car. I'm going to have the baby right now. The baby is coming.'"

And she wasn't wrong.

"My wife was saying, 'The baby is coming. The baby is out.'"

Axel Strahl was born on April 8.

He describes what his wife looked like, at this point.

"I looked at my wife. The only way to describe it, like someone hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants. It was like somebody was trying to sneak the baby on a plane."

That is a hilarious image.

Obviously, they helped his wife undress ... and she promptly finished giving birth on the floor of the lobby.

"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.'"

He says that it began as an emergency call and then became a situation in which he was simply sharing good news with a stranger.

Seth also gave a huge shout-out to everyone who helped -- the firefighters, the doorman, and everyone who was simply understanding.

"I should point out that we have not lived in this building for a long time at all."

So he felt extra awkward -- at least, after the fact, when he was able to process anything aside from the birth of his child.

"We just moved in at the end of last year. I'm so glad that we're already co-op approved, because I don't know."

He didn't care for the Uber driver charging him, especially considering that his wife would have ended up delivering in the Uber, which would have absolutely been worse for the driver than being summoned without anyone getting in.

Uber has since refunded Seth's money and sent him and his wife congratulations on the birth of their second son.

Seth's voice breaks as he describes how wonderful his wife is and how he knows that Axel and Ashe are both going to have good lives and grow up to be wonderful people because of her.

He also shares that while they chose the name Axel because they both like the name, they chose the name Strahl because his was the name of his wife's grandparents.

They were Holocaust survivors.
