A woman from Massachusetts has given birth to a 10lb baby girl – just 1 hour after discovering she was pregnant.

Katie Kropas, 23, asked her grandmother to drive her to the hospital when she started experiencing stomach pains. It was only then that medics revealed she was nine months pregnant

“At the time, I was like, this has got to be a joke, but I had no idea what to think,” Kropas told the local news outlet NECN.

Kropas gave birth to a healthy 10lb 2oz baby girl just one hour after receiving the news that she was pregnant.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, Kropas said that people in the hospital were amazed she didn’t realise she was pregnant.

“They just say ‘you were carrying around 10 extra pounds and didn’t know it?’” she said. “I don’t know why I didn’t know. I mean, I’m just excited and I appreciate everyone who is helping.”

Kropas, who was reportedly on birth control and had relatively regular periods, had put her weight gain to over-eating whilst on holiday.
