“We were one of those couples who was all about natural birth. We had the right doctor, we had the right doula and the right nurse at the hospital,” the 33-year-old actor, who welcomed the little girl in September, told People.
“Kimberly did it as naturally as she could, but at the end of the day we were very glad we were in the hospital,” he added.

The happy couple wed at the Kabbalah Centre in Tel Aviv, Israel on Sunday, August 1.
“We looked at this wedding as a sacred union of our souls,” James told Life & Style. “For us, there was tremendous freedom in not having to worry about the food getting cold or the DJ playing ‘YMCA’ again!”
“I first noticed Kimberly in Jaffa,” James added. “I was telling my friend and teacher Shalom [who was at the wedding] that after everything I’d been through, I finally felt ready for a relationship — someone I could grow old with, change with…a soul mate. I was in midsentence when, from behind us, a female voice interrupted. At first I was annoyed — who had the nerve to butt in on such an important revelation? Then I turned around and saw her.”
