Actress Jennifer Connelly and actor Paul Bettany welcome baby girl Agnes. Connelly gave birth in a birthing pool on May 31, reports Access Hollywood.
It’s gonna be a crowded place, Hollywood. Much more crowded than the last years, as the Hollywood stars have entered a baby bump frenzy. It could turn to a fashion must by the middle of the summer. If you think this is a joke, let’s remember some of the celebrities, in and even outside Hollywood have been or still are pregnant at this point: Kate Hudson, Alicia Silverstone, Tori Spelling, Lauryn Hill, January Jones, Mariah Carey, Melanie Brown, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Ivanka Trump … and the list could go on. The fashion stylist should concentrate their haute couture collection to soon to be mothers.
Besides the fashion, the trends, the motherhood will, there is always that side of health state for both the mother and the child. Actress Jennifer Connely has chosen to give birth in a way that seems more natural and less traumatizing for both mother and baby: in a birthing pool. This is thought to be the best pick if the mother wants to give birth naturally, avoiding the risks and the trauma of the cesarean section.
Motherhood is a life changing state for Jennifer, who last year told People Magazine that her priorities have been turned upside down since she has become a parent: “Becoming a mother has made all the difference in terms of learning to take more responsibility for myself and my life. The biggest thing for me is wanting my kids to grow up safely and have happy lives. To me, that’s enough.” Connely said.
Little Agnes Lark Bettany is the couple’s first girl. They already have 2 sons: Stellan, who is 7 years old, and Kai, who is 13 years old and whom Jennifer had from her previous relationship with photographer David Dugan.
Jen and Paul met on the set while filming “A Beautiful Mind”, a movie based on a true story starring Russell Crowe. They dated for almost 2 years and then got married in 2003 in Scotland.
