Fitness Queen Emily Skye Shares Joys Of Unexpected Home Birth!
Fitness influencer Emily Skye welcomed her second child in a very unexpected way last week. Thinking she had more time than she actually did, Emily ended up giving birth at home in her living room!
The Fitness Queen took to Instagram to share several images of herself moments after welcoming her healthy baby boy Izaac into the world captioning the pics with: “Well THAT was unexpected. Little Izaac just couldn’t wait any longer to enter the world!!”
“I’ll share with you our birth story soon!! Be ready, it’s a wild one!”
Judging from the photos it appears paramedics were by Skye’s side during the birth. Luckily!
According to a pregnancy video Emily shared with her 2.5 million followers the day before giving birth, the 35-year-old was only 37 weeks along.
In the video, Emily completely unaware of what was about to happen, shared her birth plan for going into labour.
“My mum arrives tomorrow so she’ll be able to mind Mia [her 2-year-old daughter] so Dec can be at birth,” she wrote. “I’m also doing a maternity shoot and THEN I’ll be ready for you baby boy… I THINK..”

The last family photo of the 3 of us before we become a family of 4?! ?? #37weekspregnant Mia allowed us to take 2 photos of the 3 of us before she cracked a tantrum. I’ll tell you what, it’s not easy trying to get a decent pic with a toddler – especially with a tripod & timer! ? I’m just grateful we got a good pic out of the 2! Haha!! ? I’m currently sitting on the couch getting lots of braxton hicks contractions & cramps. I don’t know if these signs could be the starts of labour as it’s different for every woman. I could still be weeks away from giving birth or hours! It’s such an odd feeling not knowing, but also exciting! Whenever you’re ready baby boy! ? – Actually at least wait until my mum gets here in 2 days so we have someone to mind Mia so Dec can be at the birth! PLLEEEEASE. ??? #9monthspregnant #babyonboard #pregnantmumma #maternityshoot
When the fitness queen welcomed her first child Mia into the world in 2017. things were much less chaotic. Emily even managed a cute photo of the two of them wearing matching floral outfits alongside the caption: “So happy to finally meet my gorgeous girl Mia Elise Redmond born on Dec 18th at 11:53am weighing 7lb 7oz (3.5kg).”
