Mike Verta is a clearly a very proud and protective new papa: “I would not just take a bullet for my son; I’d be like Tony Montana at the end of Scarface, just soaking up entire assault rifle magazines’ worth of lead and begging for more,” he says.
He’s also extremely proud of his wife Danica McKellar for choosing a drug-free, natural birth.
“Ladies, I’m not saying you’re ‘less than’ if you walk into the delivery room and ask for an entire pharmacy of drugs and an epidural,” Mike writes on Facebook. “I’m just saying watching Danica go all cave-woman and do it without a single cc of help was pretty damn cool, that’s all :)”
The new mom, who had previously told Celebrity Baby Scoop of her hopes for a natural birth, followed up with a post of her own, describing childbirth as “the most incredible experience of my life.”
“For those of you who follow Mike Verta’s page, you’ve already heard of the ‘cavewoman’ experience from his point of view – I did indeed go fully natural with the birth – no augmentation, no epidural, nada! It was the most incredible experience of my LIFE, and it’s hard to describe the feeling of empowerment that has c…ome along with it. Easy? No. Worth it? YES.”
Mike and Danica welcomed their baby boy Draco on September 7.
