Corey Cott, who stars as Donny Novitski in Broadway’s newest musical Bandstand, and his wife Meghan Woollard welcomed a baby boy May 1. At 8 lbs 1 oz., Elliott Michael Cott arrived as his parents listened to Broadway’s Waitress—a true Broadway baby.
My wife is a total and complete warrior. And you better believe we are currently jamming to @WaitressMusical through every contraction.

Cott, who made his Broadway debut as Jack in Disney’s Newsies (replacing Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan) and later starred in Gigi, posted to Twitter April 30 that his wife had gone into labor during his show.
Sometimes you have a show right when your wife is going into labor. #BroadwayIsHardLabor
