Evan Rachel Wood - Evan Rachel Wood opens up about childbirth

Evan Rachel Wood has praised her husband, Jamie Bell, for supporting her during childbirth.

The 'Charlie Countryman' actress decided to welcome their son into the world naturally in July at their home in Los Angeles, and revealed her husband, 27, was ''wonderful'' during the experience.

The 26-year-old star told 'Live with Kelly and Michael' on Wednesday (13.11.13): ''He was being so good. He was really keeping it together. He'd put on a brave face for me and then I think he'd go and cry in the corner. He was wonderful. He was behind me when I did the final pushes, he was helping me push the baby out.''

The actress also opened up about her decision not to undergo an epidural.

She said: ''Nothing against any woman, if you carried that baby and you get it out safely, you've done an amazing job. Obviously there is no judgement here.''

She added: ''It's a personal choice. I saw this documentary that Ricki Lake did called, 'The Business of Being Born', and I just didn't know I had an option. I honestly thought homebirth was probably illegal until I watched it and I thought, 'Oh, I didn't know it could be like that.' ''

Evan, who craved pickled onions, also opened up about her trim post-pregnancy figure and revealed she stayed active until her baby's arrival.

She said: ''I'll tell you exactly what I did. I walked every day at least three to five miles while I was pregnant, and even when I was really tired I walked even just a mile, just something every day, and I ate really healthy and I did yoga.''
