Seth Myers says his new son was born in the lobby of their apartment building.

The Late Night with Seth Meyers host told the audience about the birth of his second child during his latest episode.

Myers said he figured he had plenty of time when his wife, Alexi Ashe, went into labour - but she told him she wasn't able to reach the car, and the baby arrived in the lobby.

The 44-year-old said he called 911 and over the course of a minute said, "We're about to have a baby. We're having a baby. We had a baby."

Emergency responders took his wife and their son, Axel, to a hospital after neighbours had helped out by bringing the family blankets and warm towels.

Meyers got emotional while praising his wife for staying calm and showing him everything would be "fine forever", but of course also joked about the moment.

"I'm getting choked up just thinking about how brave I was," he said.

The couple also already have a two-year-old son.
