Enough with the copious pregnancy announcements! Let’s get down to the births!

Owen Wilson became the most recent celebrity to welcome a new addition Friday with the arrival of Ford Linton Wilson. The 6lb, 13oz baby boy was delivered naturally, without meds, via waterbirth at the 42-year-old actor’s Hawaiian home. His girlfriend, 28-year-old Federal Air Marshall Jade Duell, is reportedly doing well. According to The Star, she had assistance from two mid-wives during the 18-hour labor.

“Owen and Jade are thrilled!” an insider told Star. “Owen has been doing a celebratory hula dance all afternoon! It’s a beautiful boy and everyone is incredibly happy!”

According to Parenthood.com, nearly 250 American hospitals and 70 percent of all birth centers now support waterbirth, compared to two hospitals and a few birth centers in 1991.

It’s also worth noting that Miranda Kerr, who gave birth last weekend to a boy with husband Orlando Bloom, also reported that she went the all-natural route. “I did natural birth too, no drugs or pain killers!,” she wrote on her website.

Congrats to the new families!

    Good on Jade and Owen. Nice to see him happy again (if you believe what you read) and also that they are keeping their private lives, PRIVATE :)
