After retiring from porn, Lana Rhoades shrank from the spotlight and revealed earlier this year that she had given birth to a son called Milo – although she has refused to name the child’s father
Former porn star Lana Rhoades says giving birth was the most painful experience she has ever had.
After quitting her career as a porn star, Lana stepped away from the public spotlight and gave birth to her first child – a boy named Milo – in January this year.
Last month Milo made his first public appearance when Lana proudly featured him on a podcast – but refused to reveal the identity of the child’s father.
Now, Lana has returned with two fellow adult performers Alexa Adams and Olivia Davis for her 3 Girls 1 Kitchen podcast, where she opened up about the pain involved with becoming a new mother.
Beginning her story, Lana explained how she wanted to give birth in the same hospital where she was born in Chicago, so had planned an induced birth.
“I actually gave birth completely alone, which was my choice. My mum wanted to be there, a bunch of people wanted to be there, I just felt more comfortable doing it alone,” she began.
Upon arriving at the hospital, Lana recalled how she was given suppositories to help move the process along, and the ex-adult star’s body soon kicked into action.
“I heard this boom, like a giant explosion from inside myself. So your water breaking feels and sounds like a bomb went off inside of you,” she remembered.
“After that, the contractions started, which I kid you not, was the worst pain in my entire life.”
This was despite Lana requesting an epidural, which helps relieve pain by numbing the expectant mother’s lower body.
The birth only went on to become more stressful, though, when the team of doctors realised that Milo was struggling to make an appearance.
“Milo’s cord was wrapped around his neck, so it was actually a very crazy birth, it had to get done in 10 minutes but he wouldn’t come out.
“Contrary to popular memes on the internet, he would not come out. People said he was going to come out like a waterslide… boy do I wish that he did.
“I was like do whatever it takes to get him out. I’m looking in the mirror and she’s taking the scissors, she’s cutting from my vagina all the way down to my asshole, I’m like, ‘I’m never going to recover from this’.
Eventually, Milo was sucked into the world with the assistance of a vacuum cleaner, and when she was eventually allowed to hold her baby, Lana was surprised by how he looked.
“I realised this kid looks nothing like me at all. You kind of have an idea of what you think your kid is going to look like. I thought he was going to look like Drake’s kid; he looks nothing like Drake’s kid,” she explained.
“He has brown curly hair and brown eyes, doesn’t look like me. But he is way cuter than I ever imagined, way smarter than I ever imagined and just the best baby in the entire world.”
