Harry Kane hits back after criticism of fiancee childbirth comments

By , Reporter | 7mo
Tottenham Hotspur and England forward Harry Kane responds to criticism after praising his fiancee for having no pain relief during the birth of their second daughter.

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has been criticised after praising his fiancee for having no pain relief during the birth of their second daughter.

The England international posted a tweet on Wednesday in which he proudly welcomed Vivienne Jane Kane to the world, describing the newborn as a "beautiful addition to the family".

Kane also said that he was "so proud of ‪Kate Goodland for having the most amazing water birth with no pain relief at all", a comment that landed the 25-year-old in hot water on social media.

Broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer led condemnation of the footballer's comment, writing: "Why on Earth should anyone be 'proud' of not having pain relief while giving birth? Utterly absurd! There's a reason why women get pain relief during labour: because it bloody hurts."

Kane has since responded online by posting: "Let's get one thing straight, any women can give birth however they would like. I'm very proud of my fiancee for doing it the way she wanted and we both learnt a lot from hypnobirthing."

Vivienne is the second daughter for Kane and his fiancee, with first-born Ivy entering the world in 2017.
