BEVERLY, M.A. (WPRI) — One Massachusetts couple got the surprise of a lifetime recently – when they found out they were having a baby that very same day!
The baby, a girl, was the couple’s first. She was delivered an hour after they got the news at Beverly Hospital.
Judy Brown went to the hospital with her husband of 22 years after experiencing some abdominal pain. Brown thought she was moving into the next phase of her life, but really she was almost ready to give birth.
Judy is 47, while her husband Jason is 48 years old.
The doctor told Judy, “it’s good news. There’s no blockage. You’re pregnant and you are going to have her now.”
Then, eight-pound Carolyn Rose arrived.
Carolyn is their first child and the couple jokes about how they are planning to keep the family small.
“I will probably get the surgery done before that even becomes a thought,” said Jason jokingly.
The whole experience still hasn’t set in for the Browns.
“I feel I will wake up in the emergency room, ‘hey, this is only a dream. It felt so real,'” said Jason.
