BRITNEY Spears is planning to name her baby London, if it is a boy – and she wants to give birth by caesarean.
She said: “Ever since I was a little girl I thought, for a boy I love Sean Preston – or London Preston. Isn’t London pretty? And for a girl I love Addison Shye. I think that’s pretty.”
Britney, 23, married to former dancer Kevin Federline, 27, is due to give birth in October. But she cannot face the pain of a natural delivery after talking to her mum and is happy to have surgery instead.
She told Elle magazine: “I have a feeling I’m going to have an operation. I don’t know why, but I hope so.
“My mom said giving birth was the most excruciating thing that she’s ever gone through in her life. So if a caesarean doesn’t happen, I’ll be like, ‘Epidural, please!’ Hopefully my athletic abilities will take over.”
Britney confessed the prospect of motherhood was frightening but had brought her closer to her family.
She said: “It’s mindblowing having a child. And therapeutic – all the secrets from your family come out of the closet for some reason.”
She said Kevin, 27, who has two children from a previous marriage, was giving her plenty of support and would be in the delivery room.
Britney said she wants a boy and two girls and admitted trying for a baby had done wonders for the couple’s sex life – saying: “Oh yeah! Right, oh my goodness, it’s awesome, though. Wow!”
The couple are putting the finishing touches to their home in Kentwood, Louisiana, where Britney was born.
Meanwhile Britney’s family were evacuated from their home nearby as Hurricane Katrina approached.
Her parents, siblings and other relatives fled to Texas as the storm hit Baton Rouge, 50 miles away.
Britney watched the destruction from her other home in Malibu, California.
A source said: “Britney’s been glued to the TV coverage of the storms and obviously very worried about her family. She wasn’t able to contact them until they had moved away from the storm.
“It was very stressful for her and she’s just thankful they are all OK.”
“In the end Kentwood got off lightly compared to New Orleans and Baton Rouge but her family took no chances and moved out early just in case.”
