Jaime King - Jaime King: Topher Grace became 'surrogate husband'

Subscribe to Jaime King alerts

Jaime King admits Topher Grace became ''surrogate husband'' during the birth of her son.

The 'Hart of Dixie' star welcomed her first child James into the world in October, but her husband Kyle Newman was away filming during the delivery, so the 35-year-old actor stepped in for him.

Jaime explained: ''Topher was really amazing. He was like, 'Okay doctor, what are our options here? What is an epidural? What does it do? What's the next step?'.''

Jaime, 34, had Topher and Lana Del Rey at her side while she was in labour for 26 hours, and she admits having them there helped her get through it because they turned it into a slumber party.

She explained to People magazine: ''I was in labour for 26 hours and Topher was my surrogate husband ... and [Lana's] like my sister, one of my best friends.

''They were there with me for 26 hours seeing things you would never imagine friends would ever, ever, ever see. We turned it in to a slumber party -- they slept on couches and chairs next to my hospital bed.''

Jaime is quickly adjusting to motherhood, but she admits James has starting to move around a lot now and she's realised she has to watch him continuously.

She said: ''I realised I can never take my eyes off him. It's scary and exciting at the same time. I'm like, 'Oh my God, that's so cool!' Then, 'Holy sh*t, I'm really scared!'''.
