Olivia Wilde gave birth to her & Jason Sudeikis’ 2nd child earlier this month, but their precious daughter Daisy almost came even earlier according to Jason. And he thinks Beyonce had something to do with his fiancée’s false labor pains! Read his detailing of Olivia’s hilarious false alarm story here and find out why Queen Bey may be to blame.
Born just a few days ago on Oct. 11, Olivia Wilde, 32, and Jason Sudeikis‘, 41, daughter Daisy Josephine, may ALREADY be a huge Beyonce, 35, fan! After all, while pregnant, Olivia had a false alarm and thought her daughter was coming on Oct. 7 — but apparently little Daisy was just excited about hearing Beyonce live…at least that’s what Jason thinks!
“Daisy was born on Tuesday, but on Friday night, [Olivia] and I were going out — date night,” Jason revealed to Harry Connick Jr., 49, while appearing on his talkshow Harry just 10 days after welcoming his daughter into the world. “This is how confident of a lady Olivia is: She’s like, ‘Date night, we’re going to go see Beyonce.'” For being nine months pregnant, attending a massive concert IS a pretty bold move, but we totally love Olivia’s determination!
“So, we were in line to get in the Lincoln Tunnel and there was an accident in there,” Jason continued. “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.” Jason and Olivia then decided to turn around, and it was then the actress started feeling contractions!
“I don’t know if it was the pressure, if it was the traffic, or the fact that we were going to be late,” the Horrible Bosses actor explained. “It was just bad in the back seat of the car. We U-turned and got it out of there. We figured it would be a bad scene to have the baby in a tunnel—and a little redundant!”
Once they were out of the tunnel, the two “hightailed it to the Upper East Side where the hospital was, got out of the car and walked around the neighborhood a little bit. Then, Daisy calmed down. I think she was just fired up,” Jason joked. “Just sitting there doing the [‘Single Ladies’] dance, like, ‘I know where I’m going!'” We love it!
While on the show, Jason also made sure to point out why he had to cancel his original appearance on the show — and he had a super good reason! “I was supposed to be on the show that afternoon,” he said. “I was supposed to be here at 4, she came out at 3:39. She does not care about show business. But she will.” And with actors like Olivia and Jason for parents, we’re sure she will!
