Erika Christensen Gives Birth at Home 2018

Erika Christensen's Epic Home Birth Will "Go Down in Family History" For This 1 Reason

A home birth? Check. A delivery that put dad in the driver's seat? Check again. Erika Christensen's newest addition, Polly, has already had an incredible adventure entering the world. The 35-year-old actress shared a photo of her home birth experience on Instagram, explaining the unbelievable background story in the caption.

She wrote that the unexpected delivery happened "so quickly," the doctor was called too late, so her husband, Cole Maness, stepped in to deliver their baby girl "all by himself." According to Erika, that epic feat is enough to make Polly's home birth "go down in family history." About one minute after the delivery, the doctor arrived, as did Erika's mother. "You should've seen their faces when they walked in to hear her little wail," she joked in the caption. Luckily, her mom was able to snap this precious photo once she arrived. You can see the pure joy on their faces!

Little Polly joins 2-year-old sister Shane, Erika and Cole's eldest. Congrats all around to the now-family of four!
