Dancing With The Stars pro Lindsay Arnold Cusick, 26, just shared more about the
cesarean section birth of her first baby, daughter Sage, on her YouTube channel. And it is ~so emotional~! Sage was born on November 2, and Lindsay’s husband, Sam was by her side the entire time (and shot a lot of the video).
“She is the most precious thing, and we love her so dang much!! Now go get your tissues cause this is a tear jerker!” she wrote in the video’s caption.
The video starts as she and Sam are in the car on the way to the hospital.
“It’s 4:15 a.m., I woke up at 3:30 and thought I peed my pants, but pretty sure my water broke. And now it’s like I can’t stop leaking fluid, I’m having contractions every 5 minutes, so we’re headed to the hospital,” she says.
The next shot is of Lindsay in a hospital bed strapped with monitors and experiencing painful contractions, with Sam in a mask in the room with her.
“My water broke. I am 4 centimeters dilated. I am contracting, and the nurse said we are having this baby today,” she says.
Then Lindsay is on an operating table as her team of doctors prepares her for her C-section. She starts crying, and asks Sam, “Is she okay?”
“She’s crying,” says Sam, as the nurses bring the baby over to be measured and weighed.
“I want to hold her!” says Lindsay. She weighs in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces.
“Oh, my baby!” says Lindsay as she sees her daughter, Sage Jill Cusick, for the first time.
“She’s beautiful! You did so good,” says one of her nurses.
