Rodger explains why he called Pam in for an assist and commends Rachel's excellent work at the Oscars.

With Rachel about to pop and give birth to our son at any minute, I was really looking forward to being alone with her on our anniversary — after all, for once we were not at Fashion Week! But of course, she is Rachel, and she has a job instead.

While I understand how important this time in Rachel's career is, especially dressing Anne Hathaway to host the Oscars, I also want her to slow down and realize that this is also the single most important time for herself and her family too. Since it was increasingly frustrating to watch and worry about Rachel trying to juggle a million things while carrying our child, I did the only thing I knew to do, and reached out to Rachel's sister, Pamela. Pamela has kids so she is really the only person who can relate to what Rachel is going through. She flew into town at the last minute and saved the day by sitting Rachel down to remind her to take care of herself.
