"Am I partial to no epidural? Yes," he told the Pretty Little Liars actress. "Why? Because I'm a hypochondriac. I'm afraid of drugs. My mom didn't use an epidural. I meet women all the time who didn't choose to use an epidural."

"Would you get a root canal without any drugs?" she responded.

"You love that analogy. Who gave you the root canal analogy?" Matte said. "A root canal is not comparable because you're not born to go through a root canal. As a woman, your body is genetically engineered to give birth."
