Miranda Kerr has revealed on American TV that she insisted husband Orlando Bloom didn’t leave the room the entire time she was in labour.
The actress and model told TV host Conan O’Brien that she wouldn’t even let him go to the loo. “He was there every moment by my side, I never even let him go to the bathroom. He had to pee in a bottle!”
Miranda, who gave birth in January to baby Flynn, ended up having a labour lasting 27 hours. She was determined to have a natural birth, even though the doctors became concerned about the fluid surrounding her baby.
“The doctors said ‘OK, you’re going to have to be induced because there’s not enough fluid for the baby,’ so I was induced,” explained Miranda. “And then, 27 hours later with not one drop [of pain relief] because I’d been determined to do it.”
