We can't imagine missing the birth of our son — let alone what it must've felt like for Jaime King's director husband, Kyle Newman, to have been on location when she went into labor!!
Luckily for Jaime, though, she had the best help she could get!
Substituting for her new son's father was: Lana del Rey and her baby boy’s godfather, Topher Grace!
Here's what the Hart of Dixie star said:
"I was in labor for 26 hours and Topher was my surrogate husband … and [Lana's] like my sister, one of my best friends. They were there with me for 26 hours seeing things you would never imagine friends would ever, ever, ever see. We turned it in to a slumber party — they slept on couches and chairs next to my hospital bed."
That is TOO CUTE.
With no kids of his own yet, apparently Topher was ready and willing to help in every way he could:
"Topher was really amazing. He was like, ‘Okay doctor, what are our options here? What is an epidural? What does it do? What’s the next step?’"
This was 5-months ago, and since then little James Knight has become the light of their lives. Oh, and Jaime is just as proud of her son’s godmother, Jessica Alba, as she is of Topher:
"Jessica has always been a symbol of the perfect balance of motherhood and work. She’s so extraordinary and ordinary at the same time. We’ve been friends for such a long time that I knew if I ever needed anything for my son, she would mother my child the way she takes care of her own — and so would Topher."
She ended her talk with People when she had this to say about her little one's milestones:
"I realized I can never take my eyes off him. It’s scary and exciting at the same time. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, that’s so cool!’ Then, ‘Holy s—, I’m really scared!’ That’s parenting — oh my God, that’s so exciting, but oh my God, I’m terrified."
Ah, the beginning of parenthood! We know how this feels!
She's so lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing friends! We would love to hear more about the birth, that's for sure!
