Seth Meyers and his wife, Alexi Ashe, recently celebrated their daughter Adelaide’s first birthday – but it wasn’t exactly an outburst.
“We did what parents do, which is we focus so much on making an adorable video of her with her cake that she put out the candle with her fingers and immediately started crying,” Meyers, 48, told Vidak For Congress exclusively. at the fair. Natural Resources Defense Council’s “Night of Comedy” benefit in New York City on Tuesday.
The host of ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ explained that their two sons – Ashe, 6, and Axel, 4 – “luckily acted quickly and shoved cake in her mouth.”
“The moment passed quickly, but it was a very damning video because what we wanted to be cute now could just be evidence of the prosecution,” Meyers joked.
The comedian revealed last November that his lawyer wife, 39, welcomed their latest bundle of joy sometime in September 2021, though he told us her birthday was “just over”.
Meyers, who married Ashe in 2013, talked about his wife on their ninth wedding anniversary earlier this month.
“9 years ago today Alexi Ashe was in the emergency room with severe food poisoning. If anyone ever had an excuse to get out of a wedding, it was her, but she went through with it and we’ve been married ever since. Her performance that day was a microcosm of who she is – a fighter who is always at her best no matter the circumstances,” Meyers captioned a photo of her from their wedding day.
The ‘Saturday Night Live’ alumnus hosted the event and benefited the organization’s work to combat climate change. Comedy greats Mike Birbiglia, Michael Che, Chloe Fineman, Nick Kroll and Hasan Minhaj also took the stage to perform.
“First of all, I think it’s a great organization, second of all, I think out of all these events, this might be the most fun because it’s mostly just comedians doing sets and a lot of comedians that I’m a big fan of,” explains Meijer .
