She was born Jayne Seymour Fonda on December 21, 1937, by cesarean section at Doctors Hospital in New York. Her thirty-two-year old father, the up-and-coming young actor Henry Fonda paced back and forth outside the delivery room, smoking cigarette after cigarette while the nurses did their best to ignore him. He'd just flown in from Hollywood, where he'd been filming Jezebel opposite Bette Davis. Jane was his first child. Originally he had been nervous about becoming a father. He wasn't sure he was ready. But then he realized how much he wanted to create a family. He'd had it written into his contract that if his wife went into labor during filming, he could be with her in New York.
I'm a reader/commuter in the DC Metro Area. My daily commute to work provides me with ample time to do what I love most: read! Whether its chick lit, literature, memoirs or other non fiction you can always find me with a book.
