I just came across this on mybestbirth.com (a site I never really visit) in a thread about Kendra having to have a c-section after her induction (for a too big baby) failed. Anyway, this was posted by Abby Epstein

"Two weeks ago we learned that a major celebrity couple had an amazing waterbirth at home, partly inspired by BOBB Since they haven't spoken about it to the media (as far as we know) we'll just give you a "hint" - supermodel + football star. Apparently, the local media in Boston were reporting that she had scheduled a C-section to assure that dad would be there for the birth. The press was calling every hospital in town and totally baffled that they couldn't find her!"

I feel like a scumbag for assuming that she had a scheduled section- I didn't hear anything, but I did assume! I stand corrected!!!

Maybe others don't care quite as much as I do, simply because I live in Massachusetts and Tom Brady is our hero. Oh, and he's totally hot. And Gisele is a huge supermodel, I assumed she would go for the section/tummy tuck. Crazy!!

That's awesome! And I love the name they picked, Benjamin. If that wasn't my husband's name, we would be giving that name to this baby!

I saw your post on FB! I read she delivered vaginally at a local Boston hospital, but that's awesome if she did have a home waterbirth! I think the newspeople were making a bunch of stuff up to just fill stories since Tom/Gisele weren't really commenting on the birth and pregnancy very much.

How cool! I love Gisele and am so impressed that she didn't just go the c-section route like so many others.

I would guess they didn't talk about it since the media isn't usually homebirth/natural birth friendly and they would likely just get criticized for it. You definitely don't expect that from someone who is so famous though, good for them though!

Since we are speaking of celebs, I also love Heidi Klum. She has had natural childbirths and promotes breastfeeding!

I was going to say the same thing. That's awesome! Maybe one day she will share her story, I'd like to hear how she came to decide the way she did.

really, Heidi Klum rocks! I didn't think she would be that type either, they always show her like ten minutes after she gave birth talking about how thin she is again. Although she does seem like a totally real person and a devoted mother. Nice job Heidi!
