Big Brother winner Reggie welcomes daughter
2003 Big Brother winner, Regina "Reggie" Bird, and her fiance, Dale Sorensen welcomed a baby girl on March 31st. The little girl has been named Mia Regina Sorensen. Reggie and Dale talked to Woman’s Day about the pregnancy, motherhood and their plans for more children.
Mia has brought Reggie and Dale closer.
It’s weird but Mia has definitely brought us closer together.
They didn’t find out the sex of the baby and her being a girl was a surprise.
We didn’t know what we were having but I thought I was having a boy. In the beginning, when we had the scans, I thought I saw a penis. But it must’ve been the umbilical cord, I didn’t want to know but on that day I swore I saw something.
Reggie had a tough pregnancy, saying that she had ‘all-day-all-night sickness’ and as a result was admitted to hospital for dehydration.
At seven months the sickness eased off, and then towards the last month it came back again, just like it was in the beginning.
Mia was born via emergency c-section. She was breech.
It was horrible. It was terrible. They didn’t get the needle [epidural] in first go. So they were trying to get the needle in and I was swearing my head off. They told me it was going to be painful – so I cried all the way through it. It was much worse than I expected. I was so scared because I thought I would be able to feel them cutting me open. It’s weird because you’re numb but you can feel them pushing you around.
Oh, God! Baby number two? At the moment, no! If I hadn’t had such a horrible time with this pregnancy I’d do it as soon as I got better, I would like to have another baby close – I don’t want them to be too far apart. But at them moment, adoption is looking good.
