It's in the latest Woj story.
https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29705413/gordon-hayward-overlap-recovery-ankle-sprain-leaving-nba-bubble-child-birthWhat Hayward and the Celtics do know is that he won't be back any time soon. Because of that, Hayward said he is looking at the possibility of scheduling the impending birth of his fourth child during the time he is out.
The Celtics had been prepared for Hayward to leave the team for a few days at some point in September to be with his wife, Robyn, for the birth.
"I think it's two separate things," Hayward said, referring to his injury and the impending family addition, "but it's something I'm taking a look at. It's just very unfortunate of the timing of the whole deal, so I think I'm just trying to take it day by day, and we're looking at scheduling for the baby and all that stuff, so it's taking it day by day."
It could just be me but I read the quote as aligning his rehab and his moving out of the bubble to the (natural) birth of his child and not the other way around.
Have you watched Robyn's IG video? While it's clear she was particularly upset at the fans/people she doesn't know suggesting the birth be induced, I don't think she'd be open to the idea even if Gordon himself broached the subject, "just for basketball."
So you’re saying at some point Hayward will be out with a “vaginal delivery”.
