Wild Wednesday: Celebrity Unassisted Homebirth

This couple now have 2 babies... Echo and Maxine.
Not gonna lie- I am thinking both names are pretty cute.

Nick Hexum Delivered Daughter At Home

Nick Hexum Delivered Daughter At Home

It's safe to say that 311 rocker Nick Hexum is a very hands-on dad!

Though it wasn't exactly part of the birth plan, the 41-year-old singer ended up delivering his daughter when his wife Nikki suddenly went into labor at home last month.

The couple had planned for a midwife-assisted home birth - which is how their now 1 1/2-year-old daughter Echo was born - but US reports that Nikki's labor progressed so quickly that her husband had to deliver the baby himself.

Adding to the stress of the situation, there was a scary moment when Nick discovered that the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby's neck. But remembering Echo's birth, he was able rotate the baby and get her out.

Happily, both Nikki and their baby girl Maxine are just fine. Congratulations to Nick and his family!
