Jenna Dewan is opening up about giving birth to her second child, baby boy Callum Michael Rebel Kazee!
This is the 39-year-old entertainer’s first child with her fiance Steve Kazee.
Jenna revealed to People that Callum was born via cesarean section on March 6 in Los Angeles, while one of her favorite songs was playing in the background — “The Devi Prayer,” a 20-minute Sanskrit prayer conducive to relaxation and meditation.
“It’s a very peaceful song,” Jenna told the magazine. “It always puts me at ease. I put that on our playlist and I said to Steve, ‘If I ever start to look like I’m getting anxious or if I was having a rough time, just please play that.’ He was actually born to that song.”
Jenna, who also has a 6-year-old daughter Everly with ex Channing Tatum, said that she felt very prepared and present for Callum‘s birth this time around: “I’d heard this from a lot of people, that there’s something that happens with the second baby, that there’s a little bit more calm and peace in knowing what’s happening,” she said. “Knowing what’s coming down the line, you are able to be a little more present and enjoy all of it and it’s so true.”
Jenna also revealed what it was like to see Steve experience his first-time father birth: “It was incredible to watch the awe in his eyes of experiencing birth for the very first time, and the first time he laid eyes on our son,” she said. “He was crying the whole time and he cut the umbilical cord. Seeing his transformation of becoming a dad was one of the best things I’ve ever witnessed. It was beautiful. Birth is such a bonding experience, you’re transformed at the end of it.”
