Mandy Moore and Hilary Duff̵7;s babies are tinkering with their newborn friendship.
Saturday, This is us Starmoor, 37, posted an Instagram Story of his 2-month-old son, August (nickname: Gus), calmly lying on a blanket and staring into the distance. The other side of the blanket brother Hilary Duff’s mother-daughter, 1-month-old, was not visibly quiet as she was visibly weeping.
“Last August, Meet Mom: A Transgender Love Story,” Moore captioned the adorable photo of the two babies.
The mother joins Duff’s two eldest children, 9-year-old son Luka, with ex-husband Mike Comrie and two-year-old daughter Banks with husband Matthew Coma. Moore welcomed her first child, Gus, with husband Taylor Goldsmith in February.
Moore’s journey to parenthood proved to be interesting. In the appearance of The Informed Pregnancy Podcast With Dr. Elliott Berlin last month, Moore described her experience as a mother: “We are prepared to fall in love in all new ways, but it’s beyond imagination.”
But naturally, that doesn’t mean that her birthing process will be completely smooth. After experiencing a night full of wave-like contractions, Moore tried the breathing techniques she had learned through her pregnancy. But when you work hard “All of them just go out the window.”
After a “horrible” hospital ride “wriggling in pain” in the back of Goldsmith’s car, Moore had to give up her original plan for a home birth without drugs. On the way to the hospital, I was like ‘Taylor, I suffer from aches, I don’t want you to be angry with me. But that’s what happened when we got to the hospital. ‘We were quite a long distance, almost 40 minutes’ drive to the hospital at 3am. ”
However, Moore was unable to get the pain medication because her platelet count was too low, which can lead to a complication known as a “spinal epidural hematoma” (when blood presses on the spine), Yahoo Life previously reported.
“I remember moaning like an animal,” Moore said.
As she was pushing for three hours, the baby’s heart rate began to drop. As a result, doctors used vacuum aspiration on his head to guide him away. After the last push, the baby August was born. While the birthing process feels like “A journey of acid or something,” says Moore, she is filled with love and gratitude for everything she has learned.
“I never felt this kind of love like the world stops turning again and you don’t know what will happen again,” she said. “That’s why all the tears are broken. It doesn’t exist. It doesn’t matter. You just had kids with you and me. I can’t imagine what else will be. “
