''I snuck backstage for a wee, checked my phone and saw a message...''

When The Masked Singer's Lindsay Lohan told the crowd that winner Cody Simpson owed her some furniture, fans were left scratching their heads.
And while this palava was being carried out on-stage, host Osher Gunsberg was in for a whole other surprise- his wife Audrey Griffin was in labour with their first child.
Taking to his Twitter during the airing of the grand finale, in which Cody was crowned the winner, Osher shared the anecdote with his 37.9k followers.
"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 candidly.
"I went back inside and shouted take it off for Robot, then drove VERY safely home and to the hospital...[sic]"
Of course, fans were very quick to comment on the tweet, praising the new dad.
"So you really had four reveals that day! And the best one was saved for last! 😊" one wrote, referencing the top three finalists.
"Wow! A true pro Osher! 🙀" another commented.
And then there was this conspiracy theory: "I was wondering after listening to you talk about it in your podcast when in the filming process this happened! Wolfie - Wolf any connections 😆".

Back in August, Osher and his wife, make-up artist Audrey Griffen announced the happy news that their first child had been born.
Sharing an adorable photo of their new bub with the world on Instagram, Osher penned a gorgeous message about the experience.
"Please meet Georgia's youngest brother, Wolfgang. ⁠We call him Wolfie for short," Osher wrote, alongside the picture featuring their adorable new son, Audrey and himself in an embrace.
The proud as punch new dad continued: "He and @Audreygriffen did so well on Friday when he was born perfectly formed with ten fingers and toes, healthy and happy at 3.97kg.⁠ (Though between the delivery bed and the scale he did do a massive poop - and the doc agreed that if he hadn't he would have topped 4kg easily.)"
The Bachelor host said he was in "complete awe" of his 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 wrote.

And as we expected, the new daddy has taken to fatherhood like a duck to water - even relishing in the unpleasant tasks of parenting like changing nappies.
A few weeks after Wolfie was born, Osher posted the most adorable footage to his Instagram.
The video, filmed covertly by his mother-in-law, shows Osher singing a tune while attending to his son at a changing table.
"Busted. My wonderful mother in law secretly filmed me changing Wolfie the other night," Osher captioned the post.
"This is my "coconut bum cream" song. Anyone that knows me, knows I sing/narrate a lot of my life - because if we don't sing as we go, how are we ever going to feel like we are in a musical? Yes, Wolfie and I are working on choreography too."

One thing we love about Osher is ability to share his feelings and the raw moments of his life.
Just days after his son was born, the 45-year-old shared a black-and-white image of the pair engaging in skin-on-skin contact.
Osher wrote the most beautiful message explaining just how in love he is with his family's newest addition.
"Getting skin to skin with our boy Wolfie about ninety minutes after he was born. I was whispering my first words to him, welcoming him to the world and making some promises to him," Osher wrote on Instagram.

"To say that the smell of him seeped into my brain and started to rewire things is an incredible understatement. ⁠

"We are now a few days in, and between feeds & nappy changes - whenever I can I'm whipping off my shirt and charging up on this little guy like he's an induction stove. ⁠

"I don't know how long he'll let me do it - but holy moly I feel the gears shifting between my ears when we cuddle like this. ⁠

"I can't nurse him like @audreygriffen can - yet when he's grisly but then settles when he's on me? ⁠

"I'll take that feeling for as long as I can get it."
