Celebrity C-Sections Are None of Our Business

Posh Don't Push
Get your judging caps on, ladies! Because we're going to find out which Hollywood stars went all natural in the delivery room, and which ones were "too posh to push." (That's Victoria Beckham inspired, if you didn't know. Get it? Posh?) While I'm always curious about birth stories, simply because it is always important to the lady who actually did the birthing, I don't understand the head-shaking that oftentimes comes after.

I think we can all agree that our bodies are different, our threshold for pain is different, certainly our access to medical care is dramatically different, so why should we all have the same birth experience? But if you're into judging women for their choices (or in many cases -- complete lack of choice), here's a list of which stars went c-section, and which went natural vag.


Before we dig into the list, let's hear from perhaps the toughest mom of all, Laila Ali, regarding the birth of her son, "He is healthy, he is here, and even though everything didn't go the way I would have liked it to have gone... that's the way it was supposed to be," Ali said. Right on Laila. Right. On.
