Tori Spelling was planning on a vaginal birth to welcome her firstborn, Liam, but her doctor said he needed to perform an emergency C-section. After the birth, which was chronicled on her reality show, she said, "I had a C-section, which kept me from exercising for nine weeks. One of the biggest misconceptions is that celebrities have C-sections because it's easier. If I had a choice, I would not have. The recovery is much worse." She went on to schedule C-sections with her subsequent children, Stella, Hattie, and Finn.
