Selling Sunset’s Christine Quinn wants to give birth on TV like Khloé Kardashian to ’empower’ others

Christine Quinn, who is expecting her first child with husband Christian Richard, has revealed she wants to share her labor and delivery on her Netflix series Selling Sunset.

If her spouse, 41, agrees, the 31-year-old reality star explained she would love the opportunity to give birth on television in the hope of inspiring or empowering other women, like Khloé Kardashian and Cherie Chan. 

‘I have definitely been inspired by it when I’ve watched reality TV before,’ she told OK! magazine this week.

Citing her inspirations, she noted : ‘I watched Khloé Kardashian give birth and Cherie give birth on Bling Empire. I talked to Cherie [Chan] last night about her process with filming and I was so inspired.’

Quinn also pointed out she would ‘obviously’ have to get her husband ‘on board’ with the idea, which could be derailed by strict hospital restrictions amid the pandemic.  

‘With COVID-19 restrictions, you’re only allowed your spouse and one other person in the room, which would be my mother, so I don’t know logistically how everything is going to play out – but never say never,’ the Texas-born realtor explained.

‘If I can have someone watch the show and be inspired to be a mother or realize it’s empowering, that’s really where I’m coming from,’ she said. 

The star also hopes to have a natural birth, but she is ‘open’ to taking pain relief or doing whatever it takes to get her baby out safely.

She said: ‘I would love to have a natural birth. Everyone who has had an epidural is like, ‘Oh my gosh, why would you do that to yourself?’ And I’m like, ‘Because I can and I’m a woman and I feel like I can handle everything.’

Quinn continued: ‘It’s such a magical thing. But if it gets to the point where I’m uncomfortable and I need an epidural, then I’m definitely open.’

‘I know things can go wrong. It’s really all about the safety of the baby, and if they have to Edward Scissorhands me to get the baby out, I don’t really care, just as long as it’s safe. I will bounce back and I’m resilient, so I’m not worried about that,’ she reflected. 

Quinn, who is about eight months into her pregnancy, wants to ‘look glamorous’ while giving birth and is having some comfortable loungewear custom made.

She admitted: ‘I actually have someone who is making me a custom set of pajamas and gown. I want to feel comfortable in silk and still be fashionable at the same time.

‘In the photos, I want to look more glamorous and feel better,’ the mom-to-be confessed.
