Grace, 48, credits her husband David Linch as her rock. “He never left my side. Here’s some highlights:
On her miracle babies: “Oh, I’m so sorry,” [she says, sniffling] “I just…I still can’t believe they’re here, you know? I can’t believe they’re mine and that this is my life. I just never believed this could happen to me.”
On meeting her husband David Linch: “After I lost my fiancé, it seemed like it would be better to always be alone than to risk being hurt again,” she says. “So I felt being a wife and mother just wasn’t going to happen for me. I thought God had closed that door and given me my career instead. But then someone came into my life, and I realized: This is worth the risk.”

Minnie Driver, who is due in August, may be considering a water birth. A friend of Driver’s revealed:
“She’s thinking about using a birthing pool and has been speaking about all the different places that it could go in her house.”
The UK native is also unsure where to give birth – the UK or the US. A source said:
“Minnie’s facing a real dilemma. She has become very attached to America. A big part of her would be very happy to have her child there as it’s her adopted home. But equally, she has a strong emotional attachment to England, and likes the ideas of her baby being born a proper Brit. She’s not sure what to do.”
As we reported earlier the baby daddy is not musician Craig Zolezzi – we do know the mystery man is British, and is “sort of in the same business and really busy”.
Minnie Driver performed at an intimate concert at the Arts Theatre in London yesterday.
Has anyone reading had a water birth?
