On the podcast, Amy talked about having Penn's wife, Domino Kirke, as her doula, which is someone you can hire to guide you through childbirth and post-partum life.


"I feel like I know you because your wife helped bring my son into this world," Amy said right off the bat to Penn.

"Domino and I are due to have a conversation," Amy said.


"We were gonna work together longer after I had Gene. I suddenly was like, 'I'm good and I don't need a postpartum doula anymore," she added.

Well, Amy actually fired Domino and explained — to her husband! — why. "The truth was — this is pretty unfair to her, after I had Gene — I was recovering from a C-section," Amy said.

"Domino is like a goddess. She's an actual floating siren around the house," she said.

"She's so like, just lovely and when she touches you just kind of melt. And she was really a family member," she continued.

"And I just felt so vulnerable that I was like, ‘I can't have this Botticelli fucking goddess floating around my home when I am, like, bleeding out."

"I just didn't have the strength to allow myself the luxury of having her around the home," she explained. "I was like, ‘I think you can't come anymore.'"

"That's fair," Penn said.

The two then continued the interview. It's clear there's no love lost or hard feelings, which is great!
