Always Sunny in Philadelphia Star Kaitlin Olson Talks Homebirth

Kaitlin Olson It's Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaIt’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Kaitlin Olson talks about her homebirth plan for the delivery of her first child with Sunny creator/co-star and husband, Rob McElhenney.

Kaitlin Olson said she wanted to do a homebirth “because I believe that as long as a pregnancy is normal and complication-free, your body knows what to do, and does not need medical intervention.”

Kaitlin doesn’t discount the value of traditional hospital deliveries, but believes that “I just don’t think that childbirth is a medical problem that needs intervention unless there is a complication.”

Kaitlin Olson, who is due this month, says she’s been “practicing hypnobirthing for several months now,” learning to “relax on command” and focusing on “eliminating fear.”

The sixth season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia kicks off on September 16. And if you’re curious if Kaitlin Olson’s pregnancy will be part of the storyline or hidden on the series, wonder no more.

Kaitlin’s Sweet Dee character will appear pregnant, and of course, in true Sunny fashion, the pregnancy will be part of the show’s humor: “We initially think she’s just getting fat and give her [crap] for it and then she drops a bomb on us that she’s actually pregnant,” said co-star Glenn Howerton.

No word yet on who the baby daddy will be on the show, so keep watching to find out!
