Actress Piper gave birth to a son by emergency Caesarean at 1am yesterday, her husband Laurence Fox revealed. She endured a 26-hour labour before undergoing the operation. They have named their newborn son Winston James Fox.
Fox told reporters outside the private Portland Hospital in London: “He is beautiful, he is sweet.”
When asked about Billie’s labour, he said: “The emergency Caesarean only took about 20 minutes. “Billie is happy, of course she is, she’s a mum. I am tired but not as tired as her — I am a proud father. Billie is doing really well, no complications. Healthy, brilliant.”
Winston weighed 6lb 11oz, Fox said.
Wearing jeans and a grey jumper, a tired-looking Fox went outside the hospital on a number of occasions to smoke yesterday as reporters and photographers gathered. The proud father showed reporters outside the hospital a picture of new-born Winston on his mobile phone.
