She continued to open up about the natural birth, adding: "Would not have had it any other way. #NaturalBirth #DelayedCordClamp #HomeBirth #AtHomeBirth #PeacefulBirth under 3 hours. Wolf was born in his caul sak (like his Mama was) so... we did not know I was in labour until half way through as water never broke." She also spoke about the Tudors actor, revealing that he was "awesome" during the birth. "Johnny was able to help deliver Wolf as he entered this world and it was the best day of our lives," she said. "He was so so awesome as I would have probably passed out if could have seen what was happening. Angels were present in spiritual realm and earth angels with our amazing team. Thank you God & Birthing Instincts, #HappyMidWifeDay."
