Celebrity moms who had C-section births

It is said that one third of all births come via surgery. Whether they wanted to schedule deliveries in advance or it was medically necessary, many celebrity mothers had their babies via C-section. Keep on reading and find out who they are.

Jennifer Lopez







Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s long-awaited twins were welcomed via C-section. “I had a C-section, but my sister gave birth six months later — and she asked me to be in the delivery room with her, and I was, like, ‘Wow!’ Because I had twins and that was recommended for me to have a C-section, and there was a part of me [that] had thought, ‘I didn’t get to do it the way that everybody else does.’ But when I saw my sister pushing that baby out, I was like, ‘Maybe this was all right! Maybe this was a better out.’ So that was an experience,” the singer said.

Angelina Jolie







When Angelina Jolie was pregnant with her first biological child, Shiloh, the baby was breech, so the actress opted for a C-section for the baby’s safety. Jolie’s twins, Knox and Vivienne were also born via C-section. She said of her birth of Shiloh: “I had a C-section and I found it fascinating. I didn’t find it a sacrifice and I didn’t find it a painful experience. I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do.”

Christina Aguilera







Christina Aguilera scheduled her C-section for her 37th week of pregnancy, saying, “I didn’t want any surprises. Honestly, I didn’t want any vaginal tearing. I had heard horror stories of women going in and having to have an emergency C-section anyway. The hardest part was deciding on his birthday. I wanted to leave it up to fate, but at the same time I was ready to be done early!”

Tori Spelling







Tori Spelling gave birth via C-section for all four of her children — but it isn’t necessarily what she wanted. She told Celebrity Baby Scoop: “I hate when people say, ‘C-section is so Hollywood.’ If I could’ve, I would’ve chosen a natural birth. That’s what I wanted to do. It does make me sad that I won’t be able to experience it because I’m the type of person that likes to experience everything – bad or good, pain or not, I want to experience it all. And let me just say that a C-section is no walk in the park! Everyone thinks it’s so ‘she-she.’ It’s major surgery and the recovery is much longer and harder and painful. So I definitely wouldn’t have chosen it if I had the opportunity.”

Victoria Beckham







Posh Spice is the very woman who inspired the catchphrase “too posh to push”. David Beckham’s wife has had four scheduled C-sections. Victoria claims they were medically necessary, but there has been speculation that the famously vain singer and fashion icon wanted to avoid both the pain of natural childbirth and the abdominal stretching that occurs.

Britney Spears







Back in 2005 when Britney Spears was getting ready to have her first son, Sean Preston Federline, she opted for a C-section because her mother’s descriptions of vaginal childbirth completely freaked her out. Britney said she hoped to have a C-section because she didn’t “want to go through the pain. My mom said giving birth was the most excruciating thing she’s ever gone through in her life.” She went on to deliver Jayden James through a second C-section.

Molly Sims







Molly Sims had planned on a natural birth, but it couldn’t happen. She said: “I wanted to do it naturally but there was a problem with the umbilical cord, so I had to have a C-Section. It’s definitely scary because you have to go into an operating room — I walked in and then right back out! But Scott was there the whole time. When they took Brooks over to the warmer, he grabbed my husband’s finger. Scott cried so hard, he basically baptized him.”

Marcia Cross







Marcia Cross welcomed her twins via C-section, commenting, “And whoever said that was easy?! I did not enjoy that, not for one minute . . . I heard Savannah come out cause I knew she was coming out first and I was waiting and waiting for Eden. But I didn’t realize they got them out so fast that they were both out. I was thinking something is wrong and she was already out.”
