Orlando Bloom may be too good to be true. While his wife, Miranda Kerr, was in labor for 27 hours, he didn't leave her side -- not even once. Not to go grab a bite to eat, or get some air, or even to use the restroom. So in addition to being dashingly handsome and an amazing actor and husband, the man has a superhuman bladder too?
Not exactly ...
Kerr told Conan O'Brien last night that she wouldn't let him leave AT ALL during baby Flynn's 27-hour natural birth, so he had to find an alternative method.
I wouldn't even let him leave during it. He had to pee in a bottle. He stayed there the whole time, he is a wonderful father and I am really blessed.
Wow. I understand wanting your partner to experience your child's entire birth with you, but that's pretty extreme ... and kind of icky.
Of course, labor is pretty extreme too (and a little icky as well, if we're being honest), so if that's the worst a guy has to endure in the whole process, then I guess he's getting off pretty good. In fact, maybe labor and delivery rooms should start stocking some empty bottles.
Would you make your partner pee in a bottle so you didn't have to be alone at all during labor?
