Olivia Wilde’s Baby was Nearly Born in a Tunnel After She Got Stuck in Traffic!
What a birth story! Jason Sudeikis has revealed that his wife Olivia Wilde nearly gave birth to daughter Daisy in a tunnel, after the couple were stuck in a traffic jam on the way to see Beyoncé in concert.
“We came really close,” the Horrible Bosses actor recalled.
Jason and heavily pregnant Olivia were on their way out for one final date night, when she began getting contractions.
He explained: ‘On Friday night, [Olivia] and I were going out – date night.
‘This is how confident of a lady Olivia is. She’s like, “Date night, we’re going to go see Beyoncé.”‘
‘So, we were in line to get in the Lincoln Tunnel and there was an accident in there.
‘Everything was gummed up, so it was going to take us like an hour to get through the tunnel, and we would have been a half hour late to the concert, which would have been a bummer because we would miss all the choreography and fireworks.
‘I don’t know if it was the pressure, if it was the traffic, or the fact that we were going to be late. It was just bad in the back seat of the car.
All’s well that ends well though, as it turned out to be a false alarm. Baby Daisy was born four days later.
Speaking on Harry Connick Jr.’s new chat show Harry, he said: ‘We hightailed it to the Upper East Side where the hospital was, got out of the car, walked around the neighbourhood a little bit.
‘Then, Daisy calmed down. I think she was just fired up. Just sitting there doing the [‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’] dance, like, ‘I know where I’m going!”
