Aaron Taylor-Johnson helped deliver his children at home

British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson helped deliver both his children when his director wife Sam Taylor-Johnson gave birth at home.

The Kick-Ass star, 24, and the 48-year-old filmmaker welcomed their first daughter, Wylda Rae, in 2010, and later added a second girl, Romy Hero, in 2012.


Both babies were born at home and the actor wanted to be closely involved in the birthing process.


He tells At Large magazine, "Our two were both born at home, and I helped deliver my children. It was very intimate. When I was holding my daughter, I looked down and thought, This is the most pure and most gorgeous, innocent, angelic thing I've ever held in my hands. This is the purest thing we as humans can create. This is the best creation we can make. As parents, it becomes our job not to ruin it."


The pair married in 2012. The Fifty Shades of Gray director has two other children from her previous marriage.
