Katie Couric On Her C-Section: Uterus Looked 'Like A Portobello Mushroom'

In an appearance with Chelsea Handler on 'Chelsea Lately', Katie Couric recalled what it was like giving birth to her first daughter, Ellie, in 1991 after the host mentioned a pain in her coccyx (tailbone).

"You know, when I was pregnant with Ellie, she never dropped because my coccyx protruded too much into my uterus," the 56-year-old host said.

"So they said if I wanted to have a regular delivery that they were gonna have to break my coccyx."

"And she would have come out of your ass," Handler quipped as Couric laughed.

Couric revealed that she then instead opted to undergo a C-section and her husband (the late Jay Monahan, who passed away in 1998) wanted to be there for the procedure.

"When I had my C-section, you know, they put this tent over you," Couric explained. "And they put your arms on this board so you don't flail. So you feel like you're being crucified and they're cutting you open."

"And my husband was on that end -- bless his heart -- and he was like, 'Your uterus looks just like a portobello mushroom.' I said, 'Thanks honey, that's really helpful.'"

"That's funny because I just happen to be starving right now!," Handler joked.
