But Thandie Newton's son Booker's delivery was not conventional by any means!
In fact the whole set-up is a bit unusual and - we might add - totally awesome!
“I think he thinks he’s got three mommies. He’s got a 13-year-old, a 9-year-old and a … 27-year-old."
Wait, isn't Thandie like a little bit older? Oh, we see what she did there! Lolz!
The *ahem* "27-year-old" mommy also shared WHERE she had her son Booker, and also revealed that she's never delivered any of her children inside a hospital! She said:
“[I delivered Booker] on the bathroom floor. I’d never been in hospital as a child or as an adult really, and I just associated hospital with being ill. And I felt beautiful and healthy and wonderful when I was pregnant, and being at home was the place I felt most relaxed and comfortable. There was a time when everyone had their babies at home. It wasn’t such a big deal. It’s more about as a woman what do you feel most comfortable doing, and you make the choice, and I chose to be at home.”
Like we always say — to each their own!
We definitely could see how some folks may not want to go to a hospital for a birth, and if you're strong enough to take care of it with a midwife — why not do it like that???
Seems to be working out for Thandie VERY well!
