New Elle Magazine Interview ExcerptSeptember 1, 2005
Mirror.co.uk: BRITNEY Spears is planning to name her baby London, if it is a boy – and she wants to give birth by caesarean.
She said: “Ever since I was a little girl I thought, for a boy I love Sean Preston – or London Preston. Isn’t London pretty? And for a girl I love Addison Shye. I think that’s pretty.”
Britney, 23, married to former dancer Kevin Federline, 27, is due to give birth in October. But she cannot face the pain of a natural delivery after talking to her mum and is happy to have surgery instead.
She told Elle magazine: “I have a feeling I’m going to have an operation. I don’t know why, but I hope so.”
“My mom said giving birth was the most excruciating thing that she’s ever gone through in her life. So if a caesarean doesn’t happen, I’ll be like, ‘Epidural, please!’ Hopefully my athletic abilities will take over.”
Britney confessed the prospect of motherhood was frightening but had brought her closer to her family.
