[Blind Gossip] This actress is having a baby. That’s no secret. Everyone in the world knows about it since her husband announced it on national television!
It’s also no secret that Actress wants to give birth at home.
However, we do have some interesting information about what is going on behind the scenes!
While the couple is very private, they have a new employee.
What is a doula?
A doula is a woman who is employed to help out an expectant mother during her pregnancy and birth.
Doulas are not obstetricians. They are not nurses.
No, they are not midwives, either.
Doctors, nurses and midwives all have formal medical training.
Doulas do not have formal medical training. They are companions. They guide a woman through the pregnancy and birth process. Sometimes they stay on after the birth to support the post-partum mother. They are there to help with the mental and emotional aspects of giving birth.
Given our couple’s extreme attention to mental health and emotional health, it makes sense that they would hire someone to assist with that side of the pregnancy and birth.
Although Actress’ baby is not due for months, the doula is already on the scene.
Actually, she more than just on the scene.
She is now living with the couple in their home!
[Actress] wanted [Doula] there with her full time. She also didn’t want nosy reporters seeing [Doula] coming and going from the house.
So Doula is now living with them! Hey, it’s a big house. Plenty of room.
Now, about that home birth.
One room is being kitted out as the birthing room. It has everything to keep [Actress] comfortable: music, candles, aromatherapy, acupuncture, and homeopathic remedies.
It’s like a little spa.
That’s not all.
The doula is suggesting that she get a hypnotherapist, too.
The couple is talking to Doula about several different options for the actual delivery.
What kinds of options?
They could use a birthing stool, which would allow her to sit upright during labor.
They are also talking about using a labor sling or birth swing.
That’s a fabric device that hangs from the ceiling. Actress would hang from her arms or the upper part of her abdomen and let gravity do the work.
It’s so effective that the woman above just gave birth to a giant purple exercise ball!
Another option is a water birth.
She likes the idea of relaxing in a birth pool filled with warm water.
That sounds really peaceful.
Well, except for one tiny detail.
She is talking about having the whole family in the pool with her.
Say what now?
Now that sounds bloody awful. Pun intended.
Don’t even get us started on what they are going to do with the placenta.
It supposedly involves avocado toast and sea salt.
We’ll be sure to get the recipe for you.

[Optional] Does this sound normal or weird to you? Do you think the Husband is on board with all of this? Please use real names and keep your comments civil.
Couple: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have hired a doula… and she has moved in with them!
We don’t know exactly how the couple are going to handle the home birth. As we told you in the original blind item, they have lots of options.
We are secretly hoping that they opt for the water birth.
Everybody in the pool! Wheee!
Why are we solving this blind item so quickly?
Well, we were lucky enough to score the recipe we told you about and wanted to share it with you right away.
Note: When preparing this recipe, make sure you start with fresh placenta.
If the placenta is still warm coming out of the body, rinse it thoroughly in cold water and pat dry. That will help the edges crisp up nicely during cooking.
Avocado Toast with Crispy Sea Salt Placenta
1 Avocado, sliced
2 Slices bread, toasted
8 oz Fresh placenta, rinsed in cold water
¼ Cup onions, diced
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 Tblsp butter
1. Toast bread and arrange avocado slices on top
2. Chop placenta into small pieces using scissors. Sprinkle the placenta liberally with sea salt.
3. Saute onions and garlic in butter over medium heat for five minutes until softened and fragrant
4. Add placenta and cook until no longer pink and just starting to crisp along the edges.
5. Season placenta with more sea salt and cracked black pepper.
6. Top avocado toast with seasoned placenta.
We totally need to do a cookbook someday.
Congratulations to Harperleigh for being first with the correct response!
Meghan Markle herself just called us!
We thought she would be upset that we had let the cat out of the bag about the doula and the labor sling and the water birth and the placenta.
She was actually cool about all of it!
It’s a California thing.
Afterward, Meghan was even kind enough to send us some amazing placenta recipes!

Did you think that this crazy blind item was real?
Then you are an April Fool!
Every year, folks. Every year.
You know what’s weird?
For our 2020 April Fools blind item, we used that exact same photo of the redhead baby… and declared that Harry and Meghan’s next baby was going to be a girl!
One year later, and here we are.
Thank you for playing along this year!
Oh, and do NOT use that Avocado Toast with Crispy Sea Salt Placenta recipe. We totally made that up!
See you next year!
