Pink just kicked off her Australian Summer Carnival stadium tour, and the first night in Sydney came with a special surprise: A mom-to-be went into labor during the show. And Pink, who is a mom herself, stopped the show to check on the fan and wish her luck welcoming her baby, because of course she did.
Pink had just performed “Our Song” when her crew told her from offstage about what was going on in the crowd.
“Is it Alicia or Alex being born?” she asked, before joking, “I feel like we shouldn’t be looking. Everyone give her her privacy!”
She then clarified that the baby had not been born yet, but that her song apparently had the power to induce labor.
“Wow, ‘Our Song,’ that was the one that did it. Wouldn’t have called that one! I thought it would’ve been ‘Get The Party Started’ or ‘Never Not Gonna Dance Again,'” she joked.
Despite all her jokes, though, Pink had some words of encouragement for the mom-to-be, who presumably left the show at that point to give birth somewhere other than a stadium full of people.
“That’s exciting,” she said. “I don’t even know what to say. But we have to sing now. Good luck! It’s gonna be great! You’re gonna do great.”
And pretty soon after the exciting moment, Pink even had her daughter, 12-year-old Willow, join her onstage to sing their hit duet, “Cover Me in Sunshine.”
What’s especially wild is this isn’t the first time an audience member has gone into labor at one of Pink’s shows. Last August, an attendee in Boston started having contractions, and ended up walking a mile from the venue, Fenway Park, to a nearby hospital so she wouldn’t get stuck in traffic.
“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,” the hospital shared in a statement.
Is it something about Pink? It may be one of the more expensive ways to induce labor but hey, if you just can’t wait to get that baby out, maybe try a concert.
