A 23-year-old woman in Massachusetts gave birth to a baby only an hour after learning she was pregnant.

This story is truly some TLC level drama. Last week, 23-year-old Katie Kropas dropped a 10 lb human baby out of her womb, without ever realizing she had been pregsy in the first place. Apparently, not realizing you are pregnant until you have a baby is totally a thing, called a ‘cryptic pregnancy’.

I know a lot of women who have had a lot of babies, and their one common denominator is they fucking hated the symptoms of being pregnant. This leads me to believe that maybe it works like a placebo, and if you never find out you are with child, you will never experience any of the crazy symptoms.

Kropas was on birth control, continued having regular periods, and figured that the extra few pounds she put on was just a little holiday weight. She is thinking of naming her healthy, surprise daughter ‘Ellie’, and her boyfriend of two years is pretty happy about it as well. I can think of about a million ways this story could have gone horribly wrong, so good for her.

I have officially decided that if I ever do get pregnant, I don’t want to know about it. Katie Kropas is now and forever my hero.
