As for the birth itself, a source close to People said the Carey was “completely calm” in the hours leading up to giving birth, but her husband was “very nervous”. In a funny note, the following altercation occurred when they finally reached the hospital: “When they walked into the hospital, [Nick] was going the wrong way and they nurse redirected them to go the maternity ward, and I said to her, ‘that’s right out of I Love Lucy,’ and she laughed.”
