This Sportscaster Casually Walked Off Set When His Wife Texted Him She Was Giving Birth

Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 3.45.42 PMScott Rude is an anchor on Sports120. He’s also a husband and father of one. Well, father of two, now, but when the video in question was shot, he was still a father of one, but just barely.

During a taping of his program, the nonchalant Rude got a text from his wife about being in the hospital, getting an epidural, and needing him there right away.

His colleagues told him to go, but he kept stalling and making jokes. Eventually, he sauntered off to go be there for his wife after a minute of continuing to joke around with his friends and even suggesting he might Skype back into the show once he got to the hospital. See for yourself.

He made it in the end after his wife texted, “Need you here now.”
