Orlando Bloom Begged for Epidural During Wife's Labor

Orlando Bloom was really taking one for the team, while his wife and model Miranda Kerr was in labor with a natural childbirth, Orlando was like “Give me the epidural!”

I'm guessing between trips to the vending machine (because that's what expectant fathers do right? I have no idea about these 'having a baby' ordeals) he couldn't handle watching his wife in so much pain.

Kerr tells Australian TV show, “Sunday Night,” “I remember looking at Orlando and saying 'Oh honey.'” And instead of helping her out, Orlando begged for an epidural himself.

“He said, 'Give me the epidural!'” Kerr recalled, “'Seriously, if you don't want it, I'll take it because right now I'm dying watching you go through this pain.'”

“I had made the decision to not have any drugs, no epidural, nothing.” She says, “To each their own. I'm crazy for doing that! A lot of my friends who have had epidurals have said, 'Oh [labor] was so great.'”

Apparently not for Mr. Bloom. “I didn't realize [Flynn] was going to be such a big baby,” adds Kerr. I don't know how anyone can push something that weighs as much as a small bowling ball out of their lady parts without pain medication.

Kerr and Bloom welcomed their baby boy in January and now Kerr describes her life as “10 out of 10 happy.” Really, because if I were a Victoria Secret model married to a movie star I'd be like 100 out of 10 happy.
