You think you have nine months to plan your baby's arrival, but sometimes newborns have their own plans. These kids will pop out anywhere they damn well please. Be safe, moms to be, and maybe try not to go anywhere super embarrassing in your third trimester? You don't want to end up giving birth in the Porta Potty at a Justin Bieber concert.
1. At McDonalds.
McDonald's employee Danille Miller–who didn't know she was pregnant–felt a sudden urge to run to the bathroom during her shift. A few minutes later, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. She did not want fries with that.
2. In a Tree.
Ideally, you'd give birth on a hospital bed, but Sofia Pedro was not so lucky. The quick thinking mom-to-be climbed a tree to escape rushing floodwaters in Mozambique. Her labor came just as quickly. While high up in a tree, Sofia bravely clutched some branches and delivered her daughter. Luckily, they were both rescued by a helicopter crew minutes later.
3. At Sesame Place.
Kids love Sesame Street, apparently even before they're born. Takia Mann was with her other children at Sesame Place when suddenly she went into early labor. She delivered her baby girl right there in front of Elmo and Oscar the Grouch. "It happened so fast. I didn't have pain, just shock," said Mann. Well, that's one way to teach kids where babies come from.
4. At the strip club.
"Born in a Strip Club" sounds like the title of a really depressing country song, but for this baby it's a true story. A North Texas woman and her husband were rushing to the hospital, but their baby didn't want to wait. The nervous couple pulled their car over—at a strip club—and the mother gave birth to a healthy baby boy. I guess you could say it was destiny, which was also the name of the woman on stage.
5. On a shrimp boat.
Shrimp boat Captain Ed Kiesel caught something unexpected when his cook went into labor while out at sea. After delivering the baby, Keisel joked, "We set out with a crew of three, and we came back with a crew of four. We're not getting too much new blood in the shrimp industry, so I guess we have to manufacture our own." I really hope they named the baby "Jenny."
