Appearing on Last Call on Thursday, Rules of Engagement star Oliver Hudson, 31, tells Carson Daly about the birth of his son, Wilder Brooks, now 4 weeks — and his reaction to the realization that his child was, in fact, a boy.
It was crazy man, the most insane, intense experience of my life — I went through every range of emotions…the fear and love, it was all coming down on me at once. It was intense.
We didn’t know what it was going to be, which was really fun. We thought about going for it, then we held back, and then we decided, ‘Let’s just wait.’
[So] the baby’s coming out, it’s all happening — I’m going crazy, I’m going to faint and throw up all at the same time — and the baby’s head’s coming out, and I’m not even paying attention — all I’m looking for is the package. You always want a healthy baby, which is the truth. [Secretly], of course, I want a boy. I’m a man, I want my first kid to be a boy. I wasn’t telling anybody, because you don’t want to put it out there. [laughs]
So the baby’s coming out and the head comes out and all I’m looking for is the nuts! And then it comes out and I’m looking at it, and I’m like, ‘Oh, there’s balls, we’ve got balls, it’s a boy!’
Wilder was born on August 23rd.
