    Controversy regarding Nicole Kidman's possible decision
    to have family members deliver her child

    Controversy has arisen with the news that actress Nicole Kidman's father Antony Kidman, will deliver her and Keith Urban's child, due in July. Antony, a trained mental health specialist and his wife, Janelle Kidman, a trained nurse, are rumored to be the people who will deliver the eldest daughter's child. The couple also delivered their younger daughter Antonia Kidman's fourth child, Sybella Ann, last year.

    Um, that is GROSS.

    I don't care how hippy you all are, and 'in touch with your body' and whatever.

    If you're past the age of having your nappy changed, Dad should NOT be looking at, nor stitching up, nor admiring your brazillian wax.

    I'm sorry, but nor should he want to.

    It's probably why Antonia's marriage fell apart.
    Too intimate, way, way too intimate...

    And gross. Did I mention gross ?

    Blah !

    I just read this phrase for the first time and it is SO appropriate here.

    "I just want to poke out my mind's eye."

    You may have heard it before - I have not - expect me to use it alot....

    Louise said...

    Oh yucko! I had a girlfriend who had both parents present and Dad was using the camera!!! That freaked me out completely too. I just don't get it! Gross, gross, gross!!

    peppermintpatcher said...

    celebrity baby blog, eh? Is that a direct quote from Ms Kidman or did they make it up?

    either way I am deeply disturbed at the very thought of it.

    Not my cup'o'tea, that's for sure...

    I love my Dad and all that, but no thanks.
    He wouldn't even stay in the room when I was breastfeeding.
    Too weird for me.

    Suse said...

    I saw that in The Age and was shocked. If he was an obstetrician I might feel (slightly) less troubled, but he's a fecking mental health doctor.

    And a control freak perhaps.

    KikiMiss said...

    Well as you know I've been following this story quite closely as well and all I have to say is that's really "f--cked up" isn't it!!

    Kim said...

    OK, so I'm still trying to get my head around all these references to Nicoles baby bump because i'm looking at the pictures and there's not even a RIPPLE.

    And now you're expecting me to get my head around her father poking around her moodie?

    Far. Out.

    I'm supportive of home birth and of having family in the room of course but in no way could I ever, ever ever have my Dad deliver my kid. Bleh!
    I asked my first OB about this, he had a DD my age. When I asked if he would deliver his own daughter's baby he said, "That's a big NO way No how!"
    I consider myself pretty progressive but this gives me the yuckies.

    Elizabeth said...

    Just gross.

    Melody said...

    I'm with you on this one. Like stacey, my dad would leave the room when I was breast feeding!!

    Tina O'D said...

    Not for me either. Hubby and the necessary ob and nursing staff were the only ones in the room with me. No-one else is going to dabble down there, especially not mum and dad. Yucky, Yucky, Yucky.

    That really is too open and sharing and caring... it's not right, not right at all.
    If I even suggested that to my Dad he'd run to the hills screaming!
    I'm hoping it's just crazy gossip... blurk!

    Heather said...

    That is just wrong. My hubby and the medical people. That's it for me. Even hubby was supposed to stay by my head.

    Fairlie said...

    Just plain weird. And wrong.

    I'll never be able to watch her in any movies again without thinking about this. BM Mary is absolutely spot on.

    I just want to poke out my mind's eye.

    shellyC said...

    Still shaking my head....yep still shaking it!! What is it with these Celebs? Trying to outdo each other in the weirdness stakes!

    ....head is still shaking!!

    shellyC said...

    PS. Any Mental Health Specialist attending any of my births would have had me "sectioned" - I said some awful and weird things!!

    dancingmorganmouse said...

    HUGE ick factor.

    meggie said...

    Those people are bloody weird! The whole damn family.
    What if Keith's outback Dad wants to join in too??

    Gina said...

    cannot.
    even.
    comprehend.

    Stomper Girl said...

    Really? Nicole going to push, is she? Someone better explain what labour is really like to her before she invites her old man in.

    jorth said...

    Maybe Dad can give her a post-partum Botox injection while he's at it.

    Seriously - EEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWW!

    Shayne Hope said...

    I honestly think it is all Bullshit.

    Time will tell....

    Lazy cow said...

    I DID NOT know Antonia's marriage broke up!
    My then-80 year old father - upon watching me breasfeed the Girl in hospital (I was very discreet) commented cheerily:"Sucking strongly, I see". Beyond revolting.
    Nicole isn't giving birth. No way.
