She told Hello! magazine: “He’d been so active in those last few weeks and then all of a sudden it went away completely, which was really scary, so our doctor said we had to get to the hospital right away.”
Doctors spent 48 hours trying to induce labor, and Jessica said, “They were watching him again and found that his heart rate dropped slightly.
“They thought he would be in an awkward position, so the wise decision was to have an emergency C-section and get him out quickly.
“I had been so determined to give birth naturally and go through that experience while doing all of the hypnobirthing, but I had a feeling of ‘this is our destiny, this is how it’s supposed to be done,’ and we accepted it and then got excited that it happened so fast.
“I felt like I had to be strong and positive and embrace it, instead of going in in panic. It was the most incredible, surreal, overwhelming experience ever.’
Jessica revealed that the couple chose the name Presley months before their son was born.

Speaking of her son’s middle name, Stone, Jessica said, “We both love it because it’s so different.”
