Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s son Silas is 3-years-old now, but the private-in-parenting duo has opened up about their childbirth experience in a new book, “The Nannie Connie Way: Secrets to Mastering the First Four Months of Parenthood.”
In an excerpt from the book, the couple shared that their original plan included “a natural childbirth” and ended in a c-section. And that’s when Nanny Connie– nanny to the stars stepped in.
Our story with Nanny Connie started the day we brought our son home from the hospital. That may sound like a normal statement coming from new parents, except our birth plan was anything but normal. 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.
When all our plans fell apart and the serene, natural childbirth we had envisioned ended with a transfer to the hospital and an emergency C-section, we arrived home exhausted, disillusioned, and totally in shock. 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!
To date, Justin and Jessica only have son Silas, but Justin recently revealed that “I want to have as many [kids] as we can if I’m being honest.” So, they could have more failed birthing plans in their future.
