Find out celebrity mums had an elective caesarean and those who had to have an emergency c-section during labour.


Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham has given birth three times by scheduled caesarean, for her sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.


Currently pregnant with her fourth child, Posh has pencilled in another planned casarean in the Cedars Sinai Medical Center in LA, rumoured to be on July 4th.

“I absolutely loved giving birth,” Victoria has previously been quoted as saying, with husband David Beckham quipping, “How do you know, you can’t feel anything!”



Singer Pink was admitted to hospital for a planned caesarean after it was discovered that her baby girl Willow Sage was in the breech position.

It’s believed that Pink originally planned on a vaginal birth in hospital, but the plan had to change when she she found out her baby wasn’t in the best position to be born.

Pink gave birth in LA with her husband Carey Hart by her side.


Britney Spears

Despite Britney Spears being really eager to have a baby and start a family with her then husband, Kevin Federline, Britney admitted she didn’t think she could cope with labour pains.

“I have a feeling I’m going to have an operation. I don’t know why. But I hope so, as I don’t want to go through the pain,” said Brit.

Britney went on to have both her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, delivered by caesarean.


Gwen Stefani

Singer and celeb mum-of two Gwen Stefani had an elective caesarean for both her sons, as they were both reportedly breech babies.

Gwen gave birth to sons Kingston James and Zuma Nesta Rock at the celebrity favourite, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, in LA with husband Gavin Rossdale by her side.


Kate Winslet

Actress Kate Winslet had an emergency caesarean with her daughter Mia in 2000. Kate said she wasn’t happy with having a c-section because it made her feel like a “complete failure”.

“My whole life, I’ve been told I had great child bearing hips. There’s this thing amongst women that if you can handle childbirth, you can handle anything. I felt in some way, I couldn’t join in the ‘powerful women’s club’,” Kate admitted at the time.


Kate went on to have a vaginal birth with her second child, Joe, and said at the time, “It was really triumphant!” This is often referred to as a VBAC – vaginal birth after caesarean.
