Evan Rachel Wood has praised her husband, Jamie Bell, for supporting her during childbirth. The 26-year-old star told Live with Kelly and Michael on Wednesday: ''He was being so good. He was really keeping it together. He'd put on a brave face for me and then I think he'd go and cry in the corner. He was wonderful. He was behind me when I did the final pushes, he was helping me push the baby out.'' The actress also opened up about her decision not to undergo an epidural. She said: ''Nothing against any woman, if you carried that baby and you get it out safely, you've done an amazing job. Obviously there is no judgement here.'' She added: ''It's a personal choice. I saw this documentary that Ricki Lake did called, 'The Business of Being Born', and I just didn't know I had an option. I honestly thought homebirth was probably illegal until I watched it and I thought, 'Oh, I didn't know it could be like that.' '' Evan, who craved pickled onions, also opened up about her trim post-pregnancy figure and revealed she stayed active until her baby's arrival. She said: ''I'll tell you exactly what I did. I walked every day at least three to five miles while I was pregnant, and even when I was really tired I walked even just a mile, just something every day, and I ate really healthy and I did yoga.''
