Owen Wilson Welcomes Baby Boy Via Waterbirth
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!
