Pam follows Gaga through the house as she stumbles to pack. Her enlarged belly is making it difficult for her to do things on her own. Taylor watches as well wanting desperately to help. But Gaga is very independent and insists on doing it herself.
“Come on I really think you should stay here!”
Pam pleads but Gaga shakes her head.
“I really can’t Pam! I need to be at home with Taylor.”
She says but the woman is not going to give up easily.
“But Stefani think about this! You’re in the last few weeks of your pregnancy! Don’t you want to spend them with the baby’s family?”
She asks and Gaga sighs.
“You’re not the only family he has.”
“Mom just let it go alright?”
Taylor says taking his mother’s hands into his own. She jerks them away and frowns turning back to Gaga.
“You have to stay here! Taylor can stay too!”
She pleads but Gaga isn’t giving up either.
“No way Pam! I would honestly feel more comfortable if I was at Taylor’s house.”
She says and grabs her bag. Taylor grabs Gaga’s free hand and walks towards the door. Pam runs around them and blocks the doorway.
“Absolutely not! Just think about it please! Stay one more night!”
She shouts and Gaga lets go of Taylor’s hand and places it on her pregnant belly as if to protect it.
“Look mom you’re scaring her. I know you just want what’s best for the baby but fear is not a good way to protect it.”
He says. Pam shakes her head in protest and is about to speak out when Gaga lets out a cry of pain and drops her bag to the floor. Taylor and Pam focus their attention on her.
“Stefani…what’s wrong what is it?”
Taylor asks walking to her.
“I don’t know- AH! It feels like…contractions!”
She cries and puts both hands on her belly.
“This is normal since it’s close to birth.”
He says trying to calm Gaga down but she shakes her head.
“I don’t think that is very normal!”
She shouts and Taylor looks down to see liquid dripping to the floor.
“Her water just broke!”
Pam shouts and Gaga nods.
“No shit! Thanks I would have never known!”
She screams and Taylor grabs his keys.
“We have to get her to the hospital.”
He says but Pam stays in front of the door.
“No! She needs to have the baby here!”
Pam shouts and Gaga looks at her angrily.
“Pam I swear if you don’t move out of the fucking way!”
She screams but the woman doesn’t move.
“This baby is coming now!”
She shouts and Taylor groans.
He shouts but she shakes her head and Gaga nods.
“Fine! It’s too late it’s coming now!”
She screams and Taylor and Pam help her walk into the bedroom. They make Gaga lie down and hold her knees up as high as she can. Taylor thanks God that she’s wearing a dress and nothing underneath. Pam walks in with an at-home birthing kit and he looks at it in horror.
“Did you fucking plan this?!”
He shouts and Pam nods. He has no time to argue as Gaga screams louder.
“Can we kill her AFTER this damn baby is born?!”
“Okay okay! Mom could you at least call for the damn doctor?”
He asks and Pam hesitantly calls 911. Taylor puts gloves on and shouts,
“Push! Baby push okay it’s gonna be okay!”
He shouts and Gaga pushes as hard as she can screaming…and swearing in her mind. Nothing is visible to Taylor when she forces herself to stop and try her best to breathe.
“Okay push again for me baby real hard okay?!”
Taylor shouts and Gaga takes a deep breath before pushing again.
“AHHHHH GOD DAMN IT MOTHER FUCKER!”
She cries and Taylor can finally see the head.
“One more baby one more! PUSH!”
He shouts and Gaga obeys without hesitation giving the longest, most painful push of them all and sobs when she hears Taylor shout that the baby is out. She waits for the crying but nothing happens.
“Taylor why isn’t he crying?!”
She asks and Taylor stares down at the baby in horror.
“TAYLOR WHY ISNT HE CRYING?!”
She screams but he can’t move or speak. The baby isn’t moving and it’s not crying. His eyes are closed and Pam stares in horror. Paramedics rush into the house and immediately put the frightened Gaga on a stretcher and wheel her out of the room.
“MY BABY! TELL ME MY BABY IS OKAY!”
She cries. They take the baby from Taylor and he looks at Pam.
“If our son dies it will be your fault.”
He whispers and runs to get into the ambulance. Pam shakes her head and gets into her car to follow them to the hospital.
About two hours later Taylor is holding Gaga’s hand waiting for her to wake up from her surgery. Pam is waiting in the corner of the room feeling guilty for making her have the baby at home. Both the baby AND Gaga could have died. Gaga finally wakes up and begins crying again when she sees Taylor and no baby.
“Taylor where is he. Tell me he’s okay.”
She whispers and Taylor nods quickly. Pam leaves the room.
“He’s okay baby. He’s okay. He was low on oxygen the umbilical cord got wrapped around his throat. The doctor’s helped him and he’s okay now.”
Taylor says and Gaga cries in relief. Pam returns with the little baby boy in her arms and hands him to Gaga.
“He has your eyes Stefani.”
She says and Gaga smiles still crying. Only this time they are tears of joy. Taylor kisses Gaga’s forehead and smiles down at the sleeping baby.
“He’s our little bundle of joy.”
