Jodie Turner-Smith Shares Powerful Photo From Four-Day Home Birth

"Early in the morning on my third day of labour, my husband and I shared a quiet moment," the actress, 33, told the publication.

"I was fatigued and beginning to lose my resolve. Josh ran me a bath, and as I lay in it contracting, I talked to my body and I talked to my daughter. In that moment, he snapped a picture of me.

"An honest moment of family and togetherness - a husband supporting a wife, our baby still inside me, the sacred process of creating a family."

The couple became first time parents to a baby daughter in April, though they are yet to reveal her name.

She explained how she suffered from "constant nausea and fatigue" in her first trimester which was followed by months of filming upcoming action movie, Without Remorse, due out next year.

"God knows what my baby thought was happening, because I spent most of that trimester either on set, tearing around the centre of Berlin with tactical gear and a rifle while blowing things up, or rushing through an airport to catch a flight back to America to promote Queen & Slim," she says.

Speaking about she and husband's approach to parenting, Jodie explained both she and Joshua, 42, aim to learn from heir own experiences of growing up.

"Both of us had watched our own mothers struggle to raise children without such support," she said. "Both of us were determined to create something different for ourselves.

"He kept saying to me, 'There's no part of this that I'm going to miss.' And there wasn't."

How beautiful.
