Jeffrey Dean Morgan reveals how he helped his wife Hilarie Burton deliver both their kids
The actor also revealed how he, along with his wife, participated in a childbirth class to prepare him and his 35-year-old wife for baby George's arrival
Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a proud daddy to his two kids, and he wants the world to take note of that. The actor recently opened up in an interview about what it was like to deliver both of his kids with wife Hilarie Burton.
The Walking Dead actor told People magazine about the sweet moment in a recent interview and also opened up about his experiences of bringing up his two children.
"We didn't use doctors, we used a midwife [with son Gus, 8, and daughter George, 9 weeks], so I delivered both of my kids," he told the magazine.
"The first time I didn't know; I was shocked that I was part of it. I thought I was going to hold the leg, tell her to hopefully breathe, and I wasn't ready when I took my position. This time I was a little bit more prepared and got in and got her out immediately."
He continued, "As soon as her head breached I reached in there, grabbed her by the cheeks and got her out. Hilarie was over it, so it was awesome. I got to deliver both my kids, for real, it was cool.”
The actor also revealed how he, along with his wife, participated in a childbirth class to prepare him and his 35-year-old wife for baby George's arrival.
“We did a little class with the midwife, right before my daughter was born,” he recalled. “Just what to expect, as if we’d forgotten with Gus! She came to the house and we had a little class – and then, of course, nothing that we talk about actually happens and it’s kind of free for all.”
