Actress ‘Kob’ Suvanant Kongying has given birth to a healthy baby girl a month ahead of schedule at the Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital in Bangkok this morning (or yesterday in my time) via a c-section. She came out weighing a healthy 3, 020 grams (6.65lbs), her schedule real birthday should have been May 5. Kob and Brook had wanted to give birth 2 weeks a head of schedule of late May because Kob had a placenta issue. If she gave birth naturally, it would have been dangerous and she would have lost a lot of blood. They have known about this for a while and had been discussing birth plans with their doctor for 2-3 months before their daughter was delivered.
Other than the baby not reversing to the head position for birth, making her a breech baby, and causing her mother’s c-section scar to be larger than usual, both mother and daughter are perfectly healthy.
This morning Kob’s husband ‘Brook’ Danuporn Punnakan with her mother-in-law held a press conference introducing their daughter to the media and all of Thailand. Kob was not present at the press conference because she was resting.
Kob named her child “Punnada” a combination of her last name and her mother-in-law’s name, Darika.
