Liv’s dad, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, shared a photo of the new mum on his Facebook page, writing: “When I got the call that Liv Tyler was going into labor, after crying like a baby myself, I immediately dropped everything and went to to the airport to get on the next available flight... When I landed I kept calling my daughter Mia Tyler who was already helping Liv and she kept giving me minute by minute updates,"HURRY THE BABY IS COMING!" I made it RIGHT in time before my second grandson entered this world. It was another (God wink) moment of a lifetime for me”.
