Thandie Newton’s son born in bathroom

Thandie Newton's son was born on her bathroom floor. The British actress and husband Ol Parker welcomed baby Booker Jombe in March but she didn't want him to be born at a hospital so arranged for a midwife to be at her home instead. She told the Today show: ''He was born on the bathroom floor. I had just associated hospital with being ill, and I felt beautiful and healthy and wonderful when I was pregnant, and being at home is the place I felt most relaxed and comfortable.'' The 41-year-old actress also had daughters Ripley, 13, and Nico, nine, at home, and believes it's perfectly natural. She added: ''For me, it feels normal. There was a time when everybody had their babies at home and it wasn't such a big deal.''
