Baby Drama For Moynahan
LATEST: New mum BRIDGET MOYNAHAN had to give up her plans for a natural birth in hospital on Wednesday (22Aug07) after difficulties developed towards the end of her pregnancy, according to U.S. reports.
The I, ROBOT star delivered her first child, a baby boy, at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California after medics were forced to perform a caesarean section.
Sources tell American magazine In Touch Weekly, Moynahan's baby was in a "transverse lie", leaving her doctor with no alternative but to cut the actress open.
Despite the last minute concerns, the actress' spokeswoman says, "Mother and baby are doing well."
Meanwhile, In Touch reports that the baby's father, American football star Tom Brady, missed the birth by minutes.
Brady, who split from Moynahan in December (06), reportedly arrived at the hospital carrying a large bunch of orchids and white flowers shortly after 2pm - just minutes too late.
