Walter Mckenzie Wilson Parents Initially Struggled to Have a Baby
Rainn said that the actor and his wife Holiday faced a series of problems while having a baby because of their relatively old age. The Office actor was 38, while his spouse was 40 at the time of their pregnancy.
When the duo first learned that they were having a baby, Rainn had just finished out The Office pilot.
Although the pregnancy was a smooth ride initially, it turned a little bit problematic a couple of days before her due date when a bunch of weird blood clot thingies started coming out of Holiday’s genitalia.
Soon enough, the duo went to the hospital but the doctors said them that it was a normal problem. Promptly, they came back home, but the same night at 3 0clock in the morning, Rainn Wilson’s wife started to pee blood massively. At the same time, Holiday also lost her consciousness. She was rushed to one of the disreputable hospitals of the San Fernando Valley.
Unfortunately, the hospital’s emergency room was full pack so the paramedics left Rainn and his wife in a hallway. It was literally the scariest and gut-wrenching experience for him.
Luckily, everything went fine when Rainn’s wife Holiday healthily gave birth to their son Walter.
