Megan Fox recently admitted that she over-estimated her abilities as a brand new mom, but it sounds like she may have over-estimated labor as well. She recalled screaming for an epidural while husband Brian Austin Green drove her to the hospital.
Though Fox prepared herself for the difficulty of delivery inasmuch as she could, she joked that she was demanding drugs after her first contraction. “It hurts so bad. It was so intense,” the 26-year-old said at a press event for her new film, This Is 40. “And I thought I was gonna be really tough and make it, I was going to labor to eight centimeters … but the first contraction I got was horrific!”
The pain was so intense that she screamed to husband Brian Austin Green for an epidural while they were en route to the hospital.
“I was screaming for an epidural when [Brian Austin Green] was driving me to the hospital because my water broke on its own and immediately — it was level orange pain alert,” she recalls.
Despite the pain, Fox made sure she looked her best for the arrival of her baby boy. “I was trying to blow dry my hair before I went to the hospital because I didn’t want to go to the hospital with wet hair,” she explained with a laugh.
The couple welcomed Noah Shannon into their lives just 10 weeks ago.
“It’s exhausting, but it’s amazing and you can’t — until you have kids — imagine how much you could possibly love a human being,” she says of her “super cute” son.
“It’s really intense and really overwhelming and amazing.”
Green said, “Our son is doing great. He’s such a huge addition to our life. He’s amazing and we’re so blessed and so happy.”
Megan Fox will be seen next in the Judd Apatow pseudo-sequel to Knocked Up titled This Is 40. Brian Austin Green is back in a major lead role as lead singer/guitarist Tommy in the sitcom Wedding Band, reports News.com.
