Church further stated that she was “incredibly arrogant” during her pregnancy with Frida and believed that she could give birth outside of her home since her previous home births were “very easy”.
“I had meanwhile become a nature lover, tree hugger, pretty deep hippie by the time I had my first two and little baby Frida, so I basically put this birth palace out among the trees,” she continued. “I dried flowers – it was so complicated. It looked like a set by Baz Luhrmann. I had candles everywhere. “
However, things did not go as planned.

“I worked there overnight, which was beautiful, but then I had her scream on the bathroom floor,” Church said. “Mother Nature came and went: ‘Sit down, stupid lady.’ “
According to Church, she knew she had to move inside when it “started drizzling around 7 a.m.”
“I live next to a golf course and I could really hear the golfers,” Church recalled. “When my noise started, I was like, ‘This is not going to work.’ “
The story goes on
Church – who previously revealed in June 2017 that she miscarried while expecting her first baby with Powell – subtly announced her pregnancy with Frida in March 2020 and tweeted at the time that she was “preggers” as a Fan said she “missed” a great night “at a benefit concert.
