Dannie Mountford, 19, from the West Midlands, was 36 weeks and two days pregnant when her waters burst on the dance floor while she and her new husband were dancing.
Despite the fact that their wedding was only six weeks away, Dannie and her husband Carl were convinced that their baby daughter would not arrive until January.
Dannie’s waters broke as she was dancing with her new beau on the evening of their December 18 wedding, while she was still dressed.
Dannie was then taken to the hospital, where she gave birth to Jasmine the next morning.
“I was dancing with my new husband one second and giving birth to my baby girl the next,” Dannie explained.
“It was a huge surprise, but it has added to the memory of our wedding day and will make it even more wonderful in the future.
“I felt something dribbling down my leg while dancing, and when it didn’t stop, I hurried over to my mother, who assisted me to the restroom.
“All of the wedding guests came in to check on me while I was in the restroom, and someone called a cab to take me to the hospital.
“My wedding gown was not removed until I was in the labor and delivery room. My waters had burst on it, so it was soaked.”
Dannie and Carl, both 18, arranged their wedding in six weeks in the hopes of being legally married before the birth of their daughter.
Their happy day was cut short, however, when baby Jasmine arrived early.
Dannie, who works full-time as a mother, added: “We left the reception around 10.30 p.m. to go to the hospital, but several family members lingered for the remainder of the event.
“As I walked out of the place, the DJ was still playing and others were still completing their drinks. We hadn’t even started cutting the cake!
“Fortunately, Carl hadn’t consumed much alcohol at the reception and had remained quite sober.
“Despite the fact that he was quite stressed when I went into labor, he was incredible during the birth as he calmed down.”
Dannie had been in labor for about six hours when she arrived at the hospital.
Jasmine came healthy and accompanied by Dannie’s husband and mother, despite being astonished by her presence.
Dannie stated, ” “Despite barely weighing 6 pounds 4 ounces and arriving almost a month early, Jasmine is doing great and was the ideal wedding gift.
“It also meant that all of our friends and family were the first to find out, which was incredible.
“It’s been a whirlwind since then because it was such a surprise, but I wouldn’t change a thing.
