Evan Rachel Wood Thanks Ricki Lake For Inspiring Her Natural Home Birth

Evan Rachel Wood

Evan Rachel Wood announced the birth of her and Jamie Bell’s first child on Twitter Monday, and just a day later, she revealed more details about her birthing experience.

The actress shared that she had a natural birth at home, and there’s another star she’s thanking for the idea to do so. “I have to say thank you @RickiLake for your inspiring documentary “the business of being born,”” Evan wrote. “I never knew I had a choice when it came to labor. It taught me so much & aided my decision in having a natural home birth which my son & I are now forever grateful for.”

Ricki responded to Evan’s post, obviously grateful that her documentary inspired someone. “@evanrachelwood You are so welcome. Overjoyed to hear you had a positive birth experience & a beautiful son! : )#BOBB xo,” she tweeted.

Evan and Jamie have yet to reveal the baby’s name, weight or actual birthdate.
