Louise Redknapp: “Charley Can’t Wait To Meet His Baby Brother”

“I keep saying to him, ‘Only a few more weeks,’ but a week seems like ages when you’re four.”

Keeping him involved,

“Earlier this month, Jamie was playing golf in Scotland and I went up to watch. I spoke to Charley by phone and the first thing he asked was, ‘You’re not having the baby, are you?’ If I’m not there, he thinks I’m off giving birth, even though we’ve promised him that we will all go to the hospital together and that he will be the first person besides me and Jamie to see his new brother.

“He’s bursting with excitement, which is lovely,” Louise says. “The birth means a lot to Charley, which is why we’re involving him as much as possible. On the day, my mum will come with us to the hospital and sit with Charley. That way, as soon as I come out of theatre he’ll be there. I don’t want him to think he’s missed anything – we’d never hear the end of it . . .”

Louise’s parents living nearby,

“It means Jamie and I get to spend time alone as a couple, which I think is really important. Mum picks up Charley from school if I’m working and he stays over at least once a week. I’ve been saying to her, “You’ll have to get bunk beds now.’”

Looking forward to Christmas with their new son,

“I’m so looking forward to it,” says Louise. “As we’ll have a tiny baby, I think everyone will come to us and because my mum and Jamie’s mum are so great, I know I won’t have to lift a finger.”

“I must admit, I do want the baby out now. I’ve had nausea all the way through this pregnancy and with a four year old, too, I can’t just grab three hours sleep in the afternoon like I did when I was expecting Charley.”

Her pregnancy and plans for the future,

“This baby’s been kicking like crazy. We’ve definitely got a lively one on our hands.”

“My bump is really low. I’ve got a feeling I might just get up one night and go, ‘Whoa!’”

“Right now, our priority is our boys – holding our new baby, knowing he’s well and seeing Charley’s face when he finally gets to meet his new brother. I can’t wait for that moment.”

Kevin And Christine Costner Talk About Baby #2 – A Boy!

“I’m thrilled. “I’m so happy that Cayden will have a little brother to play with. Because we’re expecting another baby boy. Though my hands might be full with another child in the house, I can handle them. I love being a mom.”

Continue reading for what fatherhood is like for Kevin the second time around

Kevin on having children with Christine,

“Well, Chris and I dated for quite a while, like six or seven years. Children were important for her. I’d already had children and felt like that part of my life was very complete. I adore my children and take my job as a father very seriously. But I wasn’t sure I was in the mood to go through that all over again. But I also wasn’t going to be able to spend the rest of my life with this woman and not do that. And like a lot of things in life, rather than worry about fear, I embraced it.”

Having a strong bond with his children,

“I mean, for my older children, I went to all their plays and all their soccer games and their recitals and was there through all their ups and downs. I don’t feel like I missed anything. And they were with me for everything – on every set they came with me.

“There’s a very strong bond that we have that wasn’t, ‘Oh, Daddy was too busy building his career that he missed a lot of things.’ That’s not the case at all. So if anything, I wasn’t looking to ‘get it right’ the second time, I was just worried that I couldn’t be as complete as I was the first time around.”
