Frank Skinner snubs Baggies for birthing class

Frank Skinner missed his first home game of the season so he could attend a special birthing class as he prepares to be a dad.
And Skinner, 55, may be kicking himself after his beloved West Brom trounced struggling Blackburn 3-0 on Saturday.
He said before the game: “I’m going to a hypno birthing class. I’m not sure what it means exactly but I imagine Paul McKenna was born by that method.
“The class is on from 3pm to 5pm so it couldn’t clash more. I can’t even read my text scores.”
Skinner, expecting a child with long-term girlfriend Cathy Mason, added: “If you want to see every home game, I am afraid the way forward is celibacy.”
He had earlier told how he wanted to be a “player-manager” dad, saying: “I can be a bit of a mate who lays down the law.”
Hypno birthing uses breathing to ease pain.
