‘I was getting very nervous that I’d get stuck,’ the Bright actor added.

Fortunately, Joel was able to leave the set and return to Sydney in time for his child’s arrival.

‘I was working with some wonderful people who said, “We will move heaven and earth to make sure you don’t miss something this important,”‘ he added. 

Christine had been pictured arriving at a North Sydney hospital earlier that month as she prepared to give birth.

Looking calm and collected, she and her mother were seen carrying large suitcases from a taxi.
