Sarah Michelle Gellar went into labour at the gym

Hollywood actress thought labour pains were a result of spicy food

Sarah Michelle Gellar has revealed she went into labour with her first baby while she was at the gym, in an interview with People magazine. “I didn’t really believe it. I just felt a little nauseous and my trainer said, ‘Isn’t your baby coming next week? Maybe it’s time now?’ I said, ‘Oh no, I doubt it’,” recalled SMG.


“She was like, ‘No, I think it’s the spicy dinner I had’,” said husband Freddie. “Then later that night, she said, ‘OK, I think I might be in labour but you should get some more sleep.’ I’m telling you, this girl is like Gandhi. She doesn’t let anything rattle her.”

The Buffy The Vampire Slayer star and husband Freddie Prinze Jr welcomed daughter Charlotte Grace in September, and have also revealed they were keen to choose a traditional name. “It was about looking for something that fits into that classical vein but was still special,” said Sarah.


“It’s almost weirder for her to be called Charlotte. She’s going to be in a class with a Magic Appleseed or something! Charlotte, hopefully, is a name that no-one will have any reason to talk about,” added dad Freddie.
