Nick Cannon and Bre Tiesi‘s newborn son, Legendary, needed respiratory support after he was delivered by a midwife during a natural home birth this week.
The baby boy is Bre’s first child and Nick’s 8th by five women.
After announcing his birth on Instagram, Bre, 31, revealed that the home birth was documented in a new vlog on YouTube on Monday.
Bre explained in the caption that “baby had a long crown caused by a nuchal hand (hand up by ear), so he needed a little respiratory support” from her midwife.
“I noticed he wasn’t crying,” she wrote.
Bre is seen nervously cradling the newborn before a piercing cry escapes from his lungs. “Finally baby cried,” she said. “Best sound I ever heard.”
“This was the most limit pushing/painful moment yet completely empowering and beautiful,” Bre wrote at the conclusion of the vlog. “The intensity of birth takes over your whole body. I swear I was pushing so hard, screaming and crying I started to break, I started doubting I could do it. I kept saying, ‘Why won’t he come? Get him out.'”
“At a certain point, I had left my body,” she adds. “I didn’t remember a lot of my birth until my team sat with me to process my birth, which I felt was sooo healing and helpful,” she continued. “I can’t thank them enough and my amazing partner who showed the f* up for us. We love you so much.”
A worn out Nick is seen by her side. He looks like he hasn’t slept in days. In one photo, Nick cut Legendary’s umbilical cord.
Bre captioned the photo gallery:
“I did it. An all natural unmedicated home birth. This was the most humbling / limit pushing yet awakening and completely empowering experience. I can’t thank my team enough for delivering my son safely. This experience has changed me forever and I couldn’t of asked for a more amazing and supportive partner. Daddy showed the f up for us.. I couldn’t of done it without you. I can’t believe he’s here.”
