'The Notebook' actress feels 'totally great' after she and her husband Marshall Allman become parents of 'two normal, healthy babies.'
Jamie Anne Allman and Marshall Allman welcome two baby boys to their home. Baby Asher James and Oliver Charles, who were born on Thursday, January 31, were treated in hospital until late April because they were delivered 81 days before the due date.
Jamie told Us Weekly that she had "horrible" pregnancy with the boys. "I puked seven to 12 times a day, and then I peed my pants every time I puked. I popped blood vessels all around my eyes from every time I vomited, and if I moved slightly I would puke, so I couldn't really walk to the bathroom," she revealed.
She was also diagnosed with gestational diabetes and had a shortened cervix which forced her to use wheelchair. "They wanted me in the hospital for three months because the shortened cervix was slowly disappearing," the actress said. She later suffered from a bladder infection which led to the early birth of her sons.
Her husband was by her side during the c-section surgery to record the delivery. However, the "Prison Break" actor was overwhelmed and fainted in the delivery room. "I was so nervous because I wanted to help him and I couldn't do anything. So I just said, 'You gotta get out of here!' He started crawling out of the operating room on all fours," Jamie told the site.
The new mother visited her sons in hospital every day while she regained her strength. "My muscles had atrophied quite a bit because I hadn't used them for sixth months," she said. When the babies were discharged from hospital, Oliver weighed in at 7 lbs., 7 oz and Asher was 8 lbs., 1 oz. The boys were only 2 lbs., 11 oz. and 3 lbs. respectively when they were born.
She feels "totally great" after recovering and happy to have "two normal, healthy babies." Although her pregnancy gave her difficult time, Jamie admitted that she wanted more kids and dreamed of having a big family.
