Gena Lee Nolin chats about her new son, Hudson
Former Baywatch star Gena Lee Nolin, 34, and her husband, hockey player Cale Hulse, 32, sat down with People earlier this week to discuss their son, 3 month old Hudson Lee. Some interview highlights:
-Although we previously posted birth stats and a photo of Hudson after he was born in Arizona, Gena tells People magazine that her labor with him ended in an emergency c-section at 10:30 pm, after 14 hours of labor.
-Also, although we knew Hudson had an older brother (Spencer, 9, from Gena’s previous marriage), he also has a big sister – Cale’s daughter Caia, 5.
-On feeding her baby – Gena is doing a combination of nursing at the breast and pumping into bottles, so that Cale can feed Hudson as well. Cale "jumps up for feedings" – he’s that excited to feed his new son! For more information on nursing after breast implant surgery, take a look at this article at Medela’s website.
-Gena gained 35 lbs during her pregnancy, thanks, in no part, she says to cheeseburger cravings! She says, "It’s not realistic to get super skinny in a month," so she’s attempting to get down to her pre-pregnancy weight over the course of six months by doing light cardio and weight lifting five days a week.
-Gena loves doing television work, but says for now, being a mom takes precendence. "I want to work, but being a mom is my No. 1 priority. My children teach me to slow down and enjoy life. … My children are the reason I laugh, smile and want to get up every morning."
