Blake Lively recently came clean about the song that was playing in the delivery room when she welcomed her baby. And while it might not seem like it right away, it's actually kind of a perfect labor soundtrack.
If we had to guess how many babies were conceived to the song "Let's Get it On," we'd have to say...well, a lot. But one celebrity used the iconic song for another purpose.
Blake Lively played a game of Fact or Fiction in a recently-released video from Michael Kors. Our main takeaway from the clip? The fact that the actress confirmed she did, in fact, give birth while "Let's Get it On" played in the background. She can blame (or rather, thank!) her husband, Ryan Reynolds, for selecting the song.
"My doctor was laughing so hard that I thought she was going to drop our baby," the mother of two admitted. But while we can definitely see the humor in the situation, we actually think this seems like a perfect labor song: It's familiar, soothing and packed with lyrics that work surprisingly well for the situation at hand (just imagine you're coaxing your baby to "c'mon, c'mon, c'mon" down the birth canal!).
Setting the mood in the delivery room may feel like the last thing on your mind when you're set to give birth, but there are some serious benefits that come with playing some great music. In fact, as we've previously reported, there's a Spotify playlist full of choices that fit the situation.
While Blake's particular choice of song may not be a common one, she's certainly not the only mother who has benefited from a good labor playlist: Nicole Kidman reportedly put together a birth playlist of songs from her hubby Keith Urban and Irish flautist James Galway; and stars like Kreayshawn, Dania Ramirez and Shanola Hampton have also shared their picks.
