Jodie Turner-Smith’s Due Date Was Yesterday And Joshua Jackson Is Anxious And Bought Her A Tesla

March 27, 2020 / Posted by:

Bringing a child into the world is a terrifying prospect, even under the best of circumstances. But doing it now, when all of this is going on, must be positively horrifying. I’m pretty sure birth plans are cancelled for the foreseeable future (which is approximately 2 minutes from now). Even if your baby is destined to be rich and extremely good looking, there are too many petrifying variables at play. According to BuzzFeed, it’s got father-to-be Joshua Jackson shook. His wife Jodie Turner-Smith’s due date was yesterday, but as of yet, no Baby Turner-Smith-Jackson-Witter.

Joshua’s currently starring in Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu (which Jodie’s been hilariously live-tweeting), pretending to be Reese Witherspoon’s husband. As scary as that sounds, it’s not as scary as knowing your actual wife and baby are going to be needing medical attention at some point in the very near future. Joshua talked about his anxiety around this on BuzzFeed’s AM to DM podcast.

“The only times we are really out of the house are to get food or go for a walk around the block,” he told BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM in an interview from his home on Wednesday.

“We were kind of social distancing anyway, just getting into the nesting phase,” he said. “The only real difficult part right now is how to interface with the medical community. Obviously we have to, and we are just trying to take that one day by day, to try to figure out what the best and healthiest way is.”

This is Joshua’s first baby and he says he’s not sure “how much of this is just first-baby anxiety and how much of this is pandemic anxiety.” To make matters worse, Joshua’s brother is an emergency room doctor who’s been working on the front lines in New York City, so he’s shitting bricks for him too. Why is he being so relatable and normal? I’m picturing Joshua and Jodie having a laugh together as he tells her about the call he just got from Gal Gadot asking if he wanted to sing Imagine with her. Joshua continued to not ruin this for me by adding:

“If ever there was proof of elections [having] consequences — we’re living with it right now,” he said. “I mean, if you hire incompetent people to do an important job, you’re probably going to get bad results, and we’re all living inside of the bad results right now.”

But then he bought Jodie a brand new Tesla and I saw the slides he was wearing, and I was like, “There it is.”

He just had to go and ruin it with them Flintstones toes. Dammit universe!!!
