Country star Cam, born Camaron Marvel Ochs, and her husband, Adam Weaver, got the sweetest holiday gift this year! The couple welcomed a daughter into the world on December 19.
And while Cam has been celebrating her baby girl’s birth ever since the country singer has even more to celebrate following the release of her new single, Till There’s Nothing Left. The new mom commemorated the big day by sharing adorable images of her little bundle of joy, who they named Lucy Marvel.
The Diane singer opened up to People about her birth experience. Though she had planned on having an all-natural birth, she learned that Lucy was breech at 39 weeks.
Cam Talks About Going Through a C-Section
“I was going to go full-on natural. I had taken courses and done all of the exercises, and I was ready to go,” she told the magazine. “Obviously, there are so many moms who have so many uphill battles, and this was small potatoes in comparison to what a lot of moms and babies go through.”
Ultimately, Cam had a c-section instead of the natural birth like she had initially envisioned. She spoke candidly about the recovering process after the major surgery.
“You get sliced open — it’s crazy, it’s major surgery. Then you’re stuck in bed, you can’t even lift up your baby, you can’t even get up to go to the bathroom without someone pushing you out of bed and then your hormones are going f—ing nuts,” the first-time mom told People. “Not to take away from the miracle, but those first two weeks are rough. And then, of course, your body heals itself. Super cool, super crazy.”
Cam’s newest song speaks to her new role as mom. “It seems simple to say, ‘I’m going to love you and give everything of myself until there’s nothing left, but you learn just how much you can love someone, especially once you have a baby,” the new mom said of the new song’s message.
Cam’s other baby – her latest album – will be released later this year. Until then, she’s enjoying every minute with Lucy Marvel and her husband.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
