She said that her contractions weren’t too bad when she and her partner left at 2 am to go to the hospital but picked up the intensity when they arrived at Wellington Hospital 10 minutes later.

She gave birth to a baby girl at 3:04 am local time.

In 2018, Genter also cycled to the hospital to give birth to her son, posting on Instagram that she and her partner cycled to Auckland City Hospital because there wasn’t enough room in the car for their “support crew”.
