Justin Timberlake's Son Was Born By Emergency C-Section
Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, have revealed that the birth of their son in 2015 didn’t go exactly as planned.
“Our birth plan was anything but normal,” Biel explained in a new book by celebrity nanny Connie Simpson. “We had two midwives, one doula, one meditation birthing class, a ton of hippie baby books, and a lovely home in the Hollywood Hills that we had turned into a labor training facility that we called The Octagon.
“So, not exactly normal.”
Biel said the couple’s plans for a peaceful natural childbirth fell apart and she ended up being taken to hospital for an emergency C-section.
Timberlake and Biel welcomed Silas Randall, who will turn 3 this month.
“We arrived home exhausted, disillusioned, and totally in shock,” she recalled. “I was obsessed with everything organic, toxin-free, natural, and homeopathic for our kid, who came into this world in an operating room through an incision.
“I was a dictator, making myself and my husband insane!”
Simpson’s book, The Nannie Connie Way: Secrets to Mastering the First Four Months of Parenthood, is set to come out April 10.
