Seth Meyers and his wife Alexi Ashe are expecting their second child.

The late night TV host - who already has a son named Ashe Olson, who was born in March 2016, with his wife - revealed the news on his own show.

Seth shared: ''A couple years ago on this show, we announced that we were having Ashe and so I wanna take this opportunity now, you guys obviously know, but my wife and I are expecting a second baby.''

In recognition of the happy news, Seth invited his brother Josh and their parents, Larry and Hillary Meyers, onto the programme on Thanksgiving (23.11.17).

During the show, Hillary revealed he started sobbing when Seth told her that Alexi was pregnant again.

She explained: ''I said, 'What happened? Are you OK?' And he said, 'No, no it's wonderful news, it's wonderful news.' I said, 'What is it?' And he said, 'Well, we're gonna have another baby.'

''I said, 'That's fabulous - why are you crying?' And he said, 'Because for over a month I've had to pretend I don't care what sex it is, but I do care, I want a little boy.'''

At that point, Seth added: ''That's true. I really wanted a brother for my son because I was so lucky to have one.''

Meanwhile, Seth's dad revealed he was keen for the TV star to name his second child Albert.

Explaining his thinking behind his wish, Larry said: ''We've had five sheepdogs, and they've all been named Albert. And I really love the dog and I always wonder what it would sound like if it could talk.

''So I figure, if they name the kid Albert, eventually he'll start to talk and I'll say, 'Ah, yeah that's it.'''
