On Friday morning, Carson, 46, appeared on the “Today” show from his home, telling his colleagues that he was not permitted to stay with Siri, 39, before or after their fourth child’s birth at a Long Island hospital.
“She went alone on Wednesday night, I could only join her for the birth,” Carson said. “I only joined her for the birth and I had to leave again, as they’re quickly trying to flip these rooms around.”
Carson said he was “profoundly moved” by Siri’s strength: “Being nine months pregnant at this time, you can imagine the extra anxiety that has brought.”
