Yesterday it was big news that Brooke Shields had her baby right before little Suri supposedly slipped silently out of Katie Holmes. A more incredible detail is the fact that Katie and Brooke gave birth in the same hospital, on the same floor!
Everyone assumed that Katie gave birth at home as planned, but she is said to have snuck out with Tom to go to the hospital. She also chickened out and had an epidural – not that there’s anything wrong with that.
“I’m pretty sure it was a silent birth because they kept saying, ‘We’re going to do it.’ “
Silent births are espoused by the Church of Scientology, and involve just what the name implies: as much silence as possible during births by everyone there, even the mother.
“(But) she did have drugs,” Cagle said. “She did have an epidural, and all of that stuff. And he did say recently that, if she wants to holler, she can holler…”
What no one could have anticipated, Cagle said, was Shields having her baby the same day as Holmes: “(Shields) not only had her baby yesterday, but in the same hospital, on the same floor as Tom’s. So, clearly, the god of irony and hilarity was in Hollywood (Tuesday).”
Shields was famously criticized by Cruise for publically admitting that she used antidepressants to get over a serious bout with postpartum depression. Cruise believes that psychiatric drugs are harmful because of his cult’s stance against their use.
Hopefully the baby was attended to properly and will be cared for by Katie, and not Scientology handlers, for its first three days.
