Katherine Heigl deelt intieme foto's21 december 2017 06:17
Het zoontje van Katherine Heigl is 1 jaar geworden en die mijlpaal deelde de Grey's Anatomy-actrice met een aantal bijzondere foto's op Instagram. Hierop is Katherine onder andere praktisch naakt te zien, ten tijde van haar zwangerschap, vlak voordat ze een keizersnee onderging om haar kind Joshua Kelly Jr. ter wereld te brengen.
"Ik was supernerveus en ook wel een beetje bang"
"Vandaag om 9.00 's morgens, exact een jaar geleden, nam mijn man Josh Kelly deze foto van mij, zodat ik me later kon herinneren hoe ontzettend zwanger ik was. Dit was vlak voordat we naar het ziekenhuis gingen en ik mijn baby kreeg."
"Mijn zoontje lag in een stuitpositie en had zich al een maand niet meer bewogen, dus daarom besloten hem via een keizersnede te laten halen. Ik was supernerveus en ook wel een beetje bang."
Katherine voegde eraan toe dat ze 'zo cool mogelijk probeerde te lijken op de foto' en dat ze heel gelukkig is om de eerste verjaardag van haar kindje te kunnen vieren.
At 9am one year ago today I had @joshbkelley take this photo of me so I could remember how incredibly pregnant I was right before we left for the hospital and my 12pm scheduled cesarean. Joshua Jr had been in the breech position for over a month and had still not moved an inch a week before his due date so I made the decision to have a cesarean and was incredibly nervous and a little scared this time last year. I had never been hospitalized or had ever had any kind of surgery and had no idea what to expect. The second photo is right before I went in for surgery. Trying to look cool, calm and collected! They numbed me up, gave me some morphine and opened me up. My doctor struggled to get him out because he was really wedged in there and not quite ready to leave the womb. When she finally pulled him out at exactly 12:33pm he didn’t start breathing and they worked quickly to get oxygen in him and start his tiny lungs. @joshbkelley was standing with them when he finally took his first breath. That day, as I slowly came out of the morphine haze and clutched my tiny man to me I thanked the heavens for his breath, his life and for making me a mother three times over. As evening settled in Josh and I got cozy in my hospital room, found one of my all time favorites #SweetHomeAlabama on the tv and just relished in our perfect newborn son. He was so tiny and new, so fragile and tender. As I lay him down to sleep that first night in his very appropriate “welcome to the world” sleep sack I thought the moment would last forever. Yet here we are, a whole year later and it’s only the photos that remind me my brute of a boy was ever so new and small! Now he’s 26 ponds of rolling, tumbling, grasping, giggling, shouting, curious, jolly energy! He is everything and more than I could have hoped for and he has brought our family even more joy, love, laughter, abundance, bliss and yes, exhaustion and exasperation too! It’s been a hell of a year and I could not be more grateful for it or him! Happy Birthday to my little man! Maybe I can make this next year go a little slower!
