Model Who Didn't Know She Was Pregnant Gives Birth On Bathroom Floor After Ten Minute Labour

A model in Australia found out she was pregnant in the most dramatic way possible - by giving birth to her baby daughter in her bathroom.

Erin Langmaid, from Melbourne, went to the bathroom feeling unwell and 10 minutes later she was holding Isla in her arms.

Until she went into labour, the 23-year-old had no idea she was pregnant. She had been using contraceptive injections, was working full time, had no cravings and no baby bump.

Unsurprisingly, Ms Langmaid said the arrival of Isla was the biggest shock of her life.

Speaking to 7 News, she said: "I was going to work, fitting into all my clothes. There was really no indication that I was pregnant. It's really weird.

"It was over in about 10 minutes. I wasn't showing obviously because I fit into everything. It was just really bizarre."

Her partner Dan Carty found out he was a dad after he heard screaming coming from the bathroom.

He said: "There was just nothing we could think of that would've given it away that she was in there.

"I heard a big scream and I ran in there and opened the door and I was worried about her, and then I saw the little one and I thought 'hang on, there's two'.

"When I ran in there I was flabbergasted."

But as if the sudden birth of an unexpected baby wasn't enough of a shock for the couple to come to terms with, they quickly realised all was not well, as Isla began to turn blue.

Mr Carty subsequently called the emergency services and the operator asked how many weeks pregnant Ms Langmaid was - a question which he of course could not answer. Thankfully, Isla was OK and the couple soon learnt that Ms Langmaid was in fact 37 weeks pregnant, with Isla born weighing in just under 8lbs.


Having been through the shock of a lifetime, Ms Langmaid and Mr Carter are now excited about the chapter that lies ahead.

"This is our life now and we wouldn't change it," Ms Langmaid said.
