Speaking to OK! Magazine, Tina reveals that Beau arrived very quickly in a labour that didn’t even require pain relief.
‘It was crazy,’ the 31-year-old says. ‘We went to sleep on Thursday night and by 10:30am the next morning, we were home with our gorgeous 7lb 8oz baby boy.
‘I got to hospital at 2am and had him at 3:02am. I’m still in shock!’
The star says her pain-free labour was a result of hypnobirthing, which teaches you to ‘turn everything into a positive,’ Tina says. ‘I had no pain relief, not even a paracetamol or gas and air.’
