Cartwright revealed on Wednesday that she was in labor for more than a full day, but in the end, got to witness the ‘amazing’ birth in a mirror alongside her husband and mother, who were both in the delivery room.

Wanting to witness herself giving the ultimate gift of life as it happened, Cartwright was able to witness Cruz’s birth through a mirror.
‘It was so amazing and motivating to see,’ she said of the birthing experience, which she also got to share with her mother Sherri Cartwright.
‘My mom also got to be in the delivery room with us, which was all so special especially after the close call and tough year she had this year,’ the concerned daughter said in reference to her mother’s bladder and kidney issues over the past year.
‘It was just the perfect day, even when I screamed in pain. Our doctor and nurses at Cedars were absolutely amazing!’
