Ageing French pop star Michel Polnareff became a first-time father last week (12/28) when he delivered his own son at his home in Los Angeles.
The singer, 66, reveals he “had no choice” but to step in and help his partner Danyellah, 27, when she went into labor in the middle of the night on 28 December (10), but he insists he handled the “beautiful” moment calmly.
Speaking on French radio on Monday (1/3), he said,
“I found myself in the position of having to deliver my son. I had no choice. The midwife was late.
“I didn’t panic for a moment. I wasn’t at all worried. One thing I knew was that the baby’s neck is very fragile and I absolutely had to support the head. I rushed to put my hand under his head. It was such a beautiful and unexpected moment.”
Polnareff admitted the couple has yet to name the tot.
