A lot of people think sports fans can be crazy, but I don’t think they hold a candle to music fans. And, one P!nk fan proved that when she went into labor at the performer’s recent show and named her child after her.
The three-time Grammy winner has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, making her one of the best-selling female artists ever. There’s no denying her talent, and that has earned her a large and loyal fan base.
Currently, she’s on her Pink Summer Carnival 2023 tour, playing in front of sold-out shows in a summer that’s been dominated by huge tours from female stars including her, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift.
On a recent stop at Fenway Park in Boston, a wild situation happened, with a pretty cool ending. Here’s E! News with more.
During the “So What” singer’s July 31 Summer Carnival Tour stop at Fenway Park in Boston, a pregnant concertgoer, Angela Mercer, went into labor at the start of the show.
Angela, who was 31 weeks pregnant at the time, traveled to Boston from Albany, New York, for the show with her mom Barbara and sister-in-law Amy, according to an Aug. 9 statement from Brigham and Women’s Hospital. However, just as the show was getting underway, she began to feel strong contractions and on the advice from her doctor, the trio immediately headed for the hospital.
“With all the traffic surrounding Fenway for the concert, Angela had trouble finding a ride to the hospital,” the statement continued of her one mile trek to the hospital. “She and her family decided the fastest way to get to Brigham and Women’s was to walk and so, decked out in their concert outfits, they made the trek to our hospital where Angela later delivered her son in the Brigham’s NICU.”
And in honor of Pink, Angela gave her son a fitting moniker: Aycen Hart. The Grammy winner—born Alecia Beth Moore—legally took her husband Carey Hart’s last name after marrying in 2006. (Pink and Carey are parents to daughter Willow, 12, and Jameson, 6.)
That’s got to be a first for P!nk. Let’s face it though, a lot of baby girls had to have been named Taylor this summer.
