Olivia Wilde gave birth to her second child with husband Jason Sudeikis last week, Daisy, who was born at an NYC hospital. But Daisy first decided she was ready to be born while her parents were in a car on their way to a Beyoncé concert, Sudeikis revealed during an appearance on Harry Connick Jr.’s talk show this morning.

"We were in line to get in the Lincoln Tunnel and there was an accident in there,” the actor said. “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.”

That's when Wilde started to have contractions. If there's one thing you miss Beyoncé for, it's to birth a human. So they made a U-turn out of the tunnel.

“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,” Sudeikis said. “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!”

After they left the tunnel, her contractions lessened, so it turned out to not be such a close call. Daisy was born just a few days later, joining big brother Otis, 2, and made her debut on Instagram shortly after her arrival:

There goes the neighborhood. Daisy Josephine Sudeikis. Born, like a boss, on #internationaldayofthegirl. ❤️

In the end, her parents didn't get to see Beyoncé. But they did get a baby. Seems like a pretty even trade.
