During a recent interview with "People", Jenna Dewan opened up about her recent birthing experience with her newborn baby son. Dewan explained that her second child was actually birthed via C-section. She also added that the birth was special due to the fact that her baby was born during the song "The Devi Prayer" which is a 20-minute Sanskrit prayer meant to induce meditation and relaxation. What could be more perfect to have playing the background during childbirth than that?

"It’s a very peaceful song. It always puts me at ease. I put that on our playlist and I said to Steve, ‘If I ever start to look like I’m getting anxious or if I was having a rough time, just please play that.’ He was actually born to that song," Dewan explained. She also explained that she felt much more prepared for this birthing experience in comparison to her first one with daughter Everly, whom she shares with ex-husband Channing Tatum.

While Dewan is now a mother of two, the birth of her son marks the first of her children with fiance, Steve Kazee.

"I’d heard this from a lot of people, that there’s something that happens with the second baby, that there’s a little bit more calm and peace in knowing what’s happening. Knowing what’s coming down the line, you are able to be a little more present and enjoy all of it and it’s so true," Dewan told the outlet.

Dewan also described the heartfelt moment of watching Kazee hold his first child. "It was incredible to watch the awe in his eyes of experiencing birth for the very first time, and the first time he laid eyes on our son," she said. "He was crying the whole time and he cut the umbilical cord. Seeing his transformation of becoming a dad was one of the best things I’ve ever witnessed. It was beautiful. Birth is such a bonding experience, you’re transformed at the end of it."

Being that the entire world is currently on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, Dewan told "People" that her and Kazee are doing their best to stay calm and joyful as they soak up their time at home with their baby.

"I was already holed up with a newborn," she explained. "I was planning to nest at home and spend really good quality time with our new baby, so not much of that has changed. I like to hole up at home and really enjoy this time together and not go out in the world too much."
