Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose are excited to welcome their baby boy into their home—literally.
The rapper and his pregnant love are planning a very hands-on, natural water birth at their house.
"Thx @RickiLake 4 making 'The Business of Being Born,'" Amber tweeted Saturday. "it changed my life & I'm looking forward 2 my home water birth wish me luck! Hugs :-)"
Wiz, 25, is excited to participate. "We gonna have a midwife and a doula at the crib, and she's gonna be in a pool, and it's gonna be like a relaxing environment, and when she's ready she's gonna tell me when to stick my hands down there and I'm gonna pull the baby out," he said on L.A. radio show Big Boy's Neighborhood (as excerpted by the San Francisco Chronicle).
"I'm excited, I'm ready," he added. "I mean I'm nervous too, but it's a good nervous. It's not like a confused nervous, like, 'What do I do?'"
Amber, 29, explained she wants "to go full-throttle" with her labor. Meaning? "I don't want no medication," she said. "We take home birthing classes to teach us how to do it, and we're gonna have our midwife, and when they baby's head comes out, he's gonna be Dr. Wiz. He's gonna be the first person to touch the child. No doctors, no gloves."
