Here's an excerpt from the story. It reads to me as if it was a planned caesarian, done earlier than due date....in that time honoured celebrity tradition. But, of course, I could be wrong.

By NICK PARKER

GERI Halliwell gave birth to a baby girl last night — after refusing to allow the tot’s dad to be present.

Ex-Spice Girl Geri, 33, checked into a suite at London’s Portland Hospital early yesterday to prepare for a Caesarean section.

Her mum Anna Maria was with her at the birth — which was not due until later this month.

The baby was delivered at 9pm by top obstetrician Malcolm Gillard, who delivered David and Victoria Beckham’s first son Brooklyn.

Mr Gillard was also flown to Spain to oversee the birth of Posh’s third son Cruz and was recommended to Geri.

A hospital source said last night: “The birth went well. Mother and daughter are doing fine.”

(does that make me sound a bit saddo )

ITV story here

Father is Sacha Gervasi.

This article suggests she was taking advice on her birth type, only anting as pain free as possible. but not ruling out a c section if doctors recommended it.

Stella is a lovely name

congrats to geri - didn't know she was preggers

itv says she gave birth in the early hours of the morning surely not a normal time for an elective cs - more like an emergency CS

Apparently father was horrified when he learned about the pregnancy, but of late has decided that he wants to be involved. He was coming over from the States to see Geri, to try and talk her round - obviously she beat him to it!

I really like the name Stella, another off my possible list for mythical baby no.2 (IF she's chosen it that is)

hulababy Mon 15-May-06 10:06:16

I agree Katz. EarllITV suggests birth was in early hours. Earlybord's report says 9pm. Neither seem like normal elective c section times.

Agree about the times. A friend of mine had an elective CS at the portland thought at 8pm. She was booked for 3 days afterwards but went into labour naturally and so had her elective when there was a theatre free. Even in private hospitals you have to queue if there is an emergency in your slot. If Geri went in labour naturally, she would either have had to wait until the theatre was free for an elective or done it the other way.

I can't wait to see the pics either. No doubt nice Mr Desmond and his lovely OK magazine will oblige.

Is she still 33!

Geri and the baby are on the front cover of Hello! this week with a huge story inside - must be 20 pages with lots of different photos. Baby is named Bluebell Madonna, and will be called Bluebell. Must say she looks radiant.
