I think every husband has the fear that unforeseen circumstances will somehow force him to end up missing his child’s birth. Hell, here in Utah a guy was arrested for groping a delivery nurse at the hospital WHILE HIS WIFE WAS IN LABOR. He missed the birth because he was in jail. Talk about unforeseen. Yikes!
Supermodel du jour Miranda Kerr told Conan O’Brien that she refused to let husband, actor Orlando Bloom, leave her side during her home birth, even just to go to the bathroom, forcing the sexy actor to pee in a bottle. I’m not sure if it was because she was afraid he’d miss the birth or what, but yes, she made him PEE IN A BOTTLE.
Talking to O’Brien in Los Angeles last night, the Australian supermodel revealed that the Lord Of The Rings star was with her the whole time as she gave birth to 10lb son Flynn on January 6. Describing the labor, Miranda, 28, laughed: ‘I wouldn’t even let him leave during it. He had to pee in a bottle. He stayed there the whole time, he is a wonderful father and I am really blessed.’
Oh my. I didn’t really want Serge to leave either but he certainly had bathroom privileges. I believe I even let him escape to the hospital cafeteria for some coffee. But then again, I was all hopped up on Epidural and my baby weighed a measly 7 pounds. I know Kerr had the ten-pound baby naturally, so I’m thinking I might have Serge in a death grip were that the case during my delivery.
What about you? Did your husband nearly miss the birth? Did you let him leave during labor? Was there any peeing in a bottle to mark your child’s triumphant entrance into the world?
By the way, Kerr also did an interview with FOX 5 describing how motherhood has changed her life and detailing how she got her bangin’ body back after baby and yes, she credits breastfeeding, which you probably already knew considering that perhaps the late Osama Bin Laden might be the only man on earth to not see photos of Kerr breastfeeding. Hell, he probably saw that, too. Depends on if he had internet access at the compound.
One question, though. What the hell is wrong with this anchor? I’ve worked in television news for more than a decade and have never seen a bigger doofus. And that’s saying A LOT, because have you seen morning news anchors these days? Edward R. Murrow has rolled in his grave so much he rolled right into the grave next door.
