A woman unexpectedly went into labour during a 50 Cent concert at the RV Inn Style Resorts Amphitheater in Washington state, according to a report by Page Six.
Witnesses state that the arena’s medical staff rushed to assist a visibly distressed woman in the audience, soon realizing that she was in advanced stages of labour and couldn’t be moved. In a quick response to ensure her privacy, attendees and staff assembled a makeshift barrier using themselves and, later, sheets that were hurriedly brought to the site. Amidst the bustling crowd, the newborn, affectionately termed “Itty Bitty Fiddy”, made her grand debut.
“The young mother and her newborn were immediately taken to a hospital following the birth, where they were reported to be in good health,” sources added.
Concert Births: Not as Uncommon as You’d Think
Though this occurrence might seem rare, surprisingly, it is not the first instance of a fan going into labour during a concert. Similarly, a woman commenced labour at a Pink concert hosted at Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts. Remarkably, she walked almost a mile to the hospital as she couldn’t find a taxi amidst the concert traffic.
Recounting another instance from 2022, a fan welcomed a new life during a Metallica performance in Brazil. The birth notably coincided with the band’s iconic song “Enter Sandman” performance, although the new parents missed the opportunity to name their child Sandy.
50 Cent’s Eventful Tour
The eventful series of instances don’t just stop at births. This tour has certainly been memorable for 50 Cent for various reasons. Aside from the unexpected birth, the tour witnessed other notable incidents. Page Six had earlier highlighted an incident involving Lil Wayne, who exited abruptly from his scheduled appearance at a concert at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles due to an alleged altercation with a tour staff member backstage.
Moreover, 50 Cent found himself in a bit of a predicament during the same concert when he accidentally struck a radio presenter on the forehead while throwing a microphone, creating quite a buzz during an already eventful tour.
