The great Radar Online – who is owned by the same parent company as the New York Daily News and US News and World Report – is claming that Britney Spears is giving birth to her first child, a son to be named London Preston, as we speak, at 11:33 Pacific Coast Time. Radar says:
A little (but very reliable) birdie tells us that Ms. Spears is giving birth (via C-section) at Cedars-Sinai right now. The Federcletus has arrived!”
The water streaming down my cheek right now either means this touching moment has moved me to tears, or I just kicked the fuck out of my table as I sat down to write this. Okay, yeah, that’s blood. BRB.
update – A call to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles confirms that their maternity ward nurses are
rude too busy for shennanigans, and hang up on you as soon as you say “Britney Spears”. Interpret that however you like.
sexy new update – The National Enquirer is also reporting the story and adding that Britney’s C-section began at 7:30 am/PT. She arrived for surgery at 6 am/PT.
grrr, look at this update – It has begun. E! Online and US magazine say that “Britney Spears gave birth shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center. Spears and Kevin Federline arrived at the hospital with a police escort shortly before 6 a.m. and medical staff whisked Spears into a birthing suite. According to hospital sources, Spears was wheeled into a delivery room about 12:15 p.m. and within minutes the first-time mother had delivered via C-section with Federline by her side.”
Mother and child both are reportedly fine.
