In the weeks leading up to the special delivery, Meyers chronicled his journey to fatherhood with clever Instagram posts.

In fact, the comedian recently learned just how tricky it is to build a bed for a young child. "This box contains a crib. I am now going to attempt to build it," he wrote on social media. "My wife has already scheduled for her brother to come build it tomorrow. This is my one chance to salvage my dignity!"

Spoiler alert: The crib was built and the family dog approved.

Throughout Ashe's pregnancy, Meyers has been able to pull off some impressive dates with his leading lady. Whether enjoying a night out seeing "Hamilton" on Broadway or traveling to Patagonia, this pair stayed close together as they eagerly waited for their first child's arrival.

"I'm most looking forward to seeing who it looks like, that's the first thing out of the gate," he recently told People. "Although ... a lot of people have said my wife and I look alike, so I think that's the one thing we know, is that the child will look like us. If not, there's a real problem."

As Meyers and his wife, a human rights lawyer, get used to life with a newborn, one thing is certain: There's still going to be some laughs all around the house.

"My wife is sillier than I am so that makes me laugh a great deal. I make her laugh, too. But I also make her not laugh and that's when I know it's time to retire something," Meyers said during an interview with Your Tango. "I had a sense that she was the closest I'd ever met to someone who I could see myself with. Pretty much right away."
