This Tuesday, July 30, Jade, 31, shared a candid Instagram post about her birth. In the photo, she was seen squatting on the floor of her bedroom carrying her son, surrounded by loved ones and paramedics.
“I accidentally gave birth at home last night, in our master closet,” she wrote in the caption. “I’ve been still processing the shock of this all, as this was not all at what I had planned, but I am so so thankful for each person who helped bring our son into the world safely.”
Jade explained that her water broke while inside the closet, and about 75 minutes later, she gave birth “while clutching a bench in our closet.”
“It was one of the scariest moments of my life because I felt so out of control, but Tanner, Tanner’s mom, my mom and the medics and firefighters kept me going when I felt like the world was caving in on me and my unborn baby,” the reality star wrote.
While Jade said she wanted to share “the happy, cute Instagrammable pics first,” she realized sharing the raw moment “felt right.”
“So incredibly grateful for the support system we had and for this beautiful boy I get to old in my arms,” she continued.
Her husband Tanner, 32, sweetly responded to the post, writing, “You. Are. Amazing.”
