The decade's most triggering comedy
Angela Mercer, an Albany resident, was 31 weeks pregnant when she attended the show at Fenway Park in Boston, according to a statement from Brigham & Women’s Hospital. The statement noted how “things didn’t quite go to plan.”
“At only 31 weeks pregnant, Angela hadn’t been expecting her son’s arrival quite yet, but she started having contractions shortly after arriving for the show. She called her doctor, who advised her to get to a hospital,” the statement went on.
“With all the traffic surrounding Fenway for the concert, Angela had trouble finding a ride 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.”
Mercer also addressed the incident, saying, “My husband Ace and I are so incredibly grateful to the exceptional team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital! The medical, case management, and social work staff guided us confidently with their knowledge and expertise, all while being personable, empathetic, and engaging. We are sincerely appreciative.”
The statement further referred to the newborn boy as Pink’s “newest, youngest” fan.
“Baby Aycen was born right on his grandma Barbara’s birthday, and while the family didn’t get to enjoy the concert, they say they received the greatest gift of all – a healthy baby boy,” the statement concluded.
