Kaitlin Olson Had To See Home Run Before Giving Birth
KAITLIN OLSON and husband ROB MCELHENNEY have announced the birth of their first child, 'Axel Lee'. However, in a statement reported by The Press Association, Olson says she had to watch Philadelphia baseball player Ryan Howard hit a home-run before giving birth, stating, "I went into labor at the Phillies/Dodgers game on Tuesday night. As soon as Ryan Howard hit a three-run home run, we felt comfortable leaving to go have our baby. We love him like crazy, even though he made us miss the second half of the game." Despite missing the end of the ball game, the star of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' - finally gave birth to 'Axel Lee', who weighed 8 pounds and 7 ounces.
