‘He’s not technically a quarantine baby,’ Lourd said on SiriusXM show Quarantined with Bruce.

‘And I want to make that known because a lot of people are having trendy quarantine babies Kingston was conceived before quarantine. So he’s technically just a Caribbean baby.’

The Los Angeles native called the coronavirus pandemic a ‘blessing in disguise’ because she got to keep the news all to herself.

‘Only my family knew and nobody else knew, like everyone was so surprised when we posted that little picture of his feet,’ Billie told the 54-year-old Palm Restaurant Group VP.

‘He is the best dad in the world’: In 2016, the Los Angeles native began dating the 28-year-old Moon Brothers musician – whose grandfather is On Golden Pond director Mark Rydell – but parenthood brought them even closer together

‘It got to just be something I shared with the people I loved the most, which was so incredible and made my pregnancy so magical and wonderful, which I did not expect it was going to be, but it turned out to be the greatest experience I got to just eat great food, hang out with the people I love, do Legos all the time. I took a HypnoBirthing class and I just, I loved being pregnant.’

In 2016, Lourd began dating the 28-year-old Moon Brothers musician – whose grandfather is On Golden Pond director Mark Rydell – but parenthood brought them even closer together.

‘He was so caring and incredible and cooked for me and gave me foot massages. And [he] did these classes with me,’ the Joe Biden supporter gushed.

‘He did the lactation class, he did the positive birthing class. So he was with me every step of the way. And we just became even closer friends, even better partners. And I think it prepared us to be the best parents and he’s sitting out there with the baby right now. And he is, as you know, the best dad in the world. And I think that’s partially because we got to have this experience together.’

Billie said she ‘hopes to work again soon’ with Olivia Wilde, who directed her as drug-crazed teen Gigi in the 2019 hit indie comedy Booksmart.

‘I’m so proud of Olivia and so excited for Olivia. She’s amazing. I mean, she was up until 7am with us, like dancing, playing music, like she was so, her energy level was equal to everyone else’s which is,’ Lourd said.

‘That’s so rare in a director and what she really had. And she pushed us all to our limits and in the best way, and like gave us wings literally. And it was just the best experience.’
