Celebaby: It Was Horrific
"It was horrific!" That's how Megan Fox described her first contraction.
Having a baby seems to have cured Megan Fox of being quite so tight-lipped about her private life - she used to be fiercely protective of it, and whilst she's not planning to join the ranks of 'follow me around 24/7' reality TV 'stars' (at least not as far as I know!), she has been spilling the beans on her labour and early months of motherhood.
"It’s exhausting, but it’s amazing and you can’t - until you have kids - you can’t imagine how much you could possibly love a human being," she says.
Megan, with her husband Brian Green, had baby Noah on the same day that Reece Witherspoon had her baby and Brian credits her for him and Megan being able to keep the birth of Noah a secret for a few weeks - I was wondering how on earth I'd managed to 'miss' the news of his arrival!
"We got really lucky. And I've been wanting to send Reese Witherspoon flowers for, like, a month and a half. 'Cause she actually gave birth, I think the day before us in Santa Monica. We were lucky enough to go in at 2:30 in the morning to the hospital and nobody knew.
We were there for two days... and we heard Reese was at her place and had a baby, and we got out of the hospital and nobody knew. We got home and thought, 'This is unbelievable!" because we weren't expecting to get away with it. So we just figured we would go with it as long as we could!"
On the labour itself, Megan has had this to say: "I was screaming for an epidural when Brian was driving me to the hospital because my water broke on its own and I was immediately — it was level orange alert pain. It was so intense. And I thought I was gonna be really tough and make it, I was gonna labour to like 8 cm… but the first contraction that I got was horrific. I had wet hair so I was trying to blow dry my hair before I went to the hospital because I didn’t want to go to the hospital with wet hair."
I remember being in labour with my daughter and suddenly getting really worried that the car doors hadn't been locked!
It's funny the things that suddenly become important; did you suddenly think of random things whilst in labour? Like: "I wonder if I turned the iron off?" or, "I really must remember to put carrots on the shopping list when I get home!"
