Matthew MConaughey is enjoying his new life as a daddy, but it's a life that got started with a bang: son Levi was delivered via emergency C-section. The Sahara actor claims little Levi, recently born to Mconohottie and girlfriend Camila Alves, had his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.
After two days of labor--yes, TWO DAYS--doctors stepped in and performed the emergency Cesarean. Both MConaughey and Alves had wanted a natural birth. Alves says she wanted whatever was best for her and the baby, so a C-section it was. What a dramatic way to enter the world! Thankfully, mom, new baby, and daddy were all ok and are doing well. In other reports, the actor claims that being a father is natural to him and something he's wanted--and chronicled wanting--since he was a kid himself. How cute is that?
Interestingly enough, it seems like more and more celebrity moms are giving birth via C-section. And, more often than not, there is some health-related explanation attached to it. Do you buy it or do you think it's just an excuse?
