TOP STORIES OF 2023: DUDE DAD’s Taylor Calmus Share Incredible Birth Story of Fourth Child

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Editor’s note: What a marvelous, miraculous and incredible year this has been! To recap, we’re reviewing our top stories of 2023 based on the number of page views. Celebrate with us and enjoy this last week of 2023. 

Taylor Calmus, known as DUDE DAD on YouTube, and wife Heidi recently announced the birth of their fourth child, son Kelso Calmus.  

Heidi Calmus went four days past her original due date. At approximately 12:13AM one morning, she realized it was go time and by 12:49AM she held Kelso in her arms.  

 Shortly after, the doctors found that Kelso struggled to breathe on his own because he had inhaled meconium due to the rapid birth.  

“This is not how you picture you first hour of your baby being born,” Heidi said.  

The doctors decided to take the next step which would be to intubate Kelso. This immediately struck panic and worry into Taylor and Heidi.  

However, Taylor sat next to Kelso, gave him a pacifier that was in Kelso’s basinet and Kelso “went to town on it,” Taylor stated. 

The doctor’s then realized Kelso wasn’t struggling to breathe as much as they thought. Instead, they decided to keep Kelso on a less invasive machine, a CPAP.  

“He’s going to be fine. He just needs time to get his breathing right so he can do it on his own and then we’ll go home. But until then, we’ll just be with him and it’s going to be fine,” Taylor concluded in the video.  

“Baby Kelso is finally here! He has stolen our hearts but is also keeping us on the edge of our seats!! 😍🤪 Watch his birth story on Facebook or YouTube! link in story,” Taylor posted on his Instagram.  

Movieguide® recently reported on how Taylor and Heidi shared the news of their new baby:   

Despite the hardships of parenting three little ones, Taylor said that it is all worth it. 

“But here’s my takeaway. Having three kids is chaos, but chaos doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing,” he said. “Chaos is our older son trying to teach his little brother how to walk. Chaos is my daughter reading the baby a book even though she doesn’t know how to read. It is a fridge full of sloppy finger paintings and a pile of tiny shoes by the door that are remnants of an adventure had. Chaos is chasing them around the house, getting them to scream at the top of their lungs, just so that they’ll fall asleep. Only to then the next day wake up with them all in your bed because they just want to be close to you.” 

“These next few years are going to be hard, but they’re also going to be worth it. As parents, we’re going to guide our kids through life. But as siblings, our kids will get to experience life together. Even after Heidi and I are long gone, our kids will always have each other, and that is why I think three kids is the perfect amount of kids.” 

 That is until Heidi poked her head in and announced her pregnancy with their fourth child. 

“Copy that! That is why I think that having four kids is the perfect amount of kids,” Taylor said.
