Baby’s Birth Is Unusual Wedding Gift
For many people their wedding day and the birth of their first child are two of the most memorable days of their lives.
For a couple in western France, they found that both of these events happened on the same day.
The bride was expecting her new addition to the family, but had not expected the extra wedding guest on this day.
Jean-Robert Gachet, mayor of Jallais, was the officiant of the 11 a.m. ceremony. He told the AFP he tried to hurry things along as the bride was “definitely a bit worn out,” but that they “put that down to the stress of the wedding.”
The happy addition to the new family arrived after wedding vows. The bride indicated discomfort during the photographs after the wedding. Emergency workers were called, and at 12:15 p.m. she delivered her little boy.
“The cry of the new born boy was an emotional moment! It was a first for us and for the emergency services,” Gachet said.
Both bride and baby are doing well.
