While Osher Was Revealing Cody Simpson As 'The Masked Singer' His Wife Was In Labour

When Osher Günsberg checked his phone during a break backstage, he would've had every reason to panic.

He had received word from his wife Audrey Griffin that she had gone into labour with their first child.

It was in this moment that Osher was just about to go back out on stage and reveal Cody Simpson as the winner of 'The Masked Singer'.

But being the true professional that he is, Osher went out and wrapped up the finale of the show before driving, as he recalls, very safely home and then to the hospital.

Osher shared the behind the scenes experience on his Twitter account last night after the finale of the show had finished airing.

"FYI when we shot this, in this ad break I snuck backstage for a wee, checked my phone and saw a message from my wife that she'd gone into labour," he wrote.

"I went back inside and shouted take it off for Robot, then drove VERY safely home and to the hospital..."

Audrey and Osher welcomed their first child together, a son named Wolfgang (or Wolfie for short), on Friday 25 August.

"He and Audrey Griffin did so well on Friday when he was born perfectly formed with ten fingers and toes, healthy and happy at 3.97kg," he wrote at the time.

I am in complete awe of my wife. ⁠What I witnessed her do, the power I saw her summon from within her to bring this boy into the world was utterly astonishing. ⁠

Osher shared that Wolfie's big sister Georgia was also in the birthing suite and made a special playlist for the occasion. ⁠

"This boy came into the world to the sounds of Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce and Khalid," he said. "Less than an hour after he was born, Wolfie met G for real - and she’s the best big sister he could have ever hoped for. " ⁠ "We are in love and drowning in gratitude, oxytocin and new baby smell. "

And Osher made it there just in time.
