While appearing on The View on Thursday (March 13), Camila Alves revealed that her third pregnancy twas by far her most difficult.
“This time around it has been a really tough recovery. I had a really tough pregnancy. I had all kind of things happen,” the 31-year-old model and wife to Matthew McConaughey told of giving birth to their third child, son Livingston, in December 2012.
The doctor’s decided that Alves would need a C-section due to a medical diagnosis the star did not divulge on air.
“Throughout the whole pregnancy I had really strong pains and I kept telling the doctors. We kept trying to figure out what it was, what was happening. Nobody could figure out what it was. So, we ended up having to do a C-section. I told the doctor right before, ‘Once I’m there, just take a look because I know something’s wrong.’ They ended up finding all kinds of things in there that we had to take care of,” adding, “This recovery has been extremely hard because I had a C-section and then I had all these extra procedures.”
Mom also to Vida and Levi, Alves is still recovery from the c-section.
“I can’t even pick up my kids, really. I really have to be careful,” she explained. “I’ve got another four weeks to go.“
