Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Jessica said, ‘She [Dr. Lacampo] and her team are amazing!
“After four hours of pushing I finally had a cesarean and they moved fast and fast and made it less intimidating for me because I was absolutely nervous.

“They even played rock music during the surgery, and when MJ was born, he came out to Led Zeppelin’s Good Times Bad Times.”
