Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals She Almost Died Giving Birth to Apple

This is so scary – Gwyneth Paltrow revealed details of her teenage daughter Apple‘s birth and explained that they almost did not make it.

“I had two caesareans [C-sections]. My daughter was an emergency, it was crazy, we almost died. It was, like, not good,” Gwyneth shared recently.

Gwyneth continued on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast, “Anyway, there’s a big scar across your body and you’re like, ‘Oh wow, that didn’t use to be there.’ And it’s not that it’s bad or you want to judge it but you’re just like, ‘Oh my God.’”

Gwyneth continued, “Thank God there wasn’t Instagram when I had babies because now it’s like, if I see someone, ‘Oh, I just gave birth two weeks ago and I have a completely washboard stomach,’ and I’m like, ‘Wow that’s not what I [looked like].’ And like great, more power to the lady with the washboard [abs] but that is totally the exception. And then now we’re being fed all of these other images of what we’re supposed to look like all the time — babies, no babies, whatever.”

She added, “I think women really need to be friends with each other and all the judgment around how you have a baby, do you breastfeed, do you not, this that, are you going to work, are you not going to work. Guess what, whatever it is, it’s OK. I feel like we also have this weird thing around, it’s past perfectionism, it’s like I can do this gargantuan task that’s superhuman and why? For what?”

If you haven’t seen, Gwyneth and Apple look so much alike – see a recent pic.
