Celebrities have been known to get real about giving birth, proving it's anything but glamorous. And sometimes, when they step from behind the Hollywood veil -- bestowing upon us real-life and real AF scenarios -- it's hard not to find them relatable. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake's emergency C-section story about their son Silas shows that no matter how prepared you are, life can take a twist at any given moment.

  • The couple shared Silas's birth story in "Nanny to the Stars" Connie Simpson's new book.

  • And let's just say things didn't exactly go according to plan.


    TBH, when do they ever?

  • "... Our birth plan was anything but normal," the celeb parents reveal in the book.

    "We had two midwives, one doula, one meditation birthing class, a ton of hippie baby books, and a lovely home in the Hollywood Hills that we had turned into a labor training facility that we called The Octagon. So, not exactly normal," Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake share in the book The Nannie Connie Way: Secrets to Mastering the First Four Months of Parenthood, as reported by Entertainment Tonight.

    Biel continues:

    "When all our plans fell apart and the serene, natural childbirth we had envisioned ended with a transfer to the hospital and an emergency C-section, we arrived home exhausted, disillusioned, and totally in shock. I was obsessed with everything organic, toxin-free, natural, and homeopathic for our kid, who came into this world in an operating room through an incision. I was a dictator, making myself and my husband insane!"

  • No matter the unexpected curveball, these two were able to have a healthy and happy baby.

    (SPOILER ALERT. It has been nearly three years. No celebrity baby birth announcement needed here, LOL.)

    Even with the unexpected craziness, we have no doubt in our minds that Silas is probably one of the most spoiled celebrity kids.

  • If anything, this shows how annoying AF those birth plans are -- and how things almost always go off script.
