Lisa D’Amato Welcomes Son Venice Sire
America’s Next Top Model winner Lisa D’Amato welcomed the support of her husband, friends and the world into her delivery room when the birth of her second son was recorded on Facebook Live.
The model’s friend went live on Thursday night, sharing a 28-minute long video of before, during and after D’Amato’s son Venice Sire was born. Before she started pushing, D’Amato asked for a few things.
“Everyone out of my vagina, okay?” she asked her friends in the room before singing John Mayer‘s “Your Body Is a Wonderland.”
“Venice is coming! Only after 14 hours,” D’Amato, 35, said in the video. “I’m really excited. And I only gained 50 instead of 80, so that’s cool.”

And even as her pregnancy came to an end, D’Amato still had some cravings.
“Now, I’m just wondering what I’m gonna eat after this,” she said. “I don’t know if I’m gonna get crispy chicken tacos, pizza or Crustacean’s garlic noodles.”
D’Amato let the Facebook community in on the entire event, even sharing some conversations with her doctors and the “Ow, ow, ow”s of her delivery.
After just a few pushes, D’Amato — and her Facebook live viewers — saw her son for the first time.
“Oh, my God … Hi baby!” she said. “Oh my God. Hi, baby. Hi. Hi, baby. It’s your mommy. I’m your mama.”
Baby Venice was not crying, and the doctor then took him away to check up on the newborn. D’Amato started to cry, and moments later, her son joins the tearful scene.
“That was like three pushes,” the proud mom said. “Venice is here! I can breathe and I don’t have heartburn. It’s amazing.”
The newly minted mother of two was eager to hold her baby, and made some jokes about the size of his head.
“Where’s my baby?” she said. “Does he look like a conehead?”
She continued to express her pride in the few pushes it required to welcome baby Venice into the world, and the video even captured the doctor tending to her placenta.
“It looks like a giant liver!” someone in the room said about the placenta.
“No tears?” she asked after the doctor confirmed there was no tearing during the birth. “It hurt so bad last time, oh my gosh.”
And D’Amato’s husband Adam Friedman was thrilled to welcome their second child.
“I feel good,” Friedman said. “Two boys. And he’s healthy.”
With her son born, D’Amato was eager for the next delivery — of food.
“I want Crustacean’s,” she said, referring to the Beverly Hills eatery known for its famous garlic noodle dish. “It’s really close … Is it bad to eat shellfish right after having a baby?”
