Ariela and Biniyam are definitely not on the same page when it comes to how they want to raise their son, Aviel. It all started when Ariela had to give birth unexpectedly after her doctor told her that they had to perform a C-section on her that same day, since her baby was in breech and she had low amniotic fluid.
After the baby was safely born, Ariela had a problem with Biniyam’s comments to cameras that according to his culture, when women give birth naturally, their love for the baby is stronger as opposed to when they give birth via C-section.
“It was a point of contention between us,” Ariela says, revealing that he told her even before she gave birth that he did not want her to have a C-section. “I don’t see how he could think that you could love your baby more or less, but, he’s a little bit superstitious, so, it’s something that we did argue about.”
“I know that other women are going to beat him up for that because that’s such a silly thing to say,” she adds. “I think he’s gonna catch a lot of heat for it, rightfully so. But, you know, sometimes we believe and say stupid things, so, you know, we’re human.”
