TORONTO – A 23-year-old Canadian woman, who had no idea she was pregnant, gave birth aboard an Air Canada flight from Calgary to Tokyo.

Ada Guan and her boyfriend, Wesley Branch, were passengers on an Air Canada flight on Sunday when she began to feel ill.

“She told me, ‘Something fell out of me,'”Branch told Global News. “I lifted up her pants and I saw a head and then I heard, ‘Waah!’ I thought, ‘Oh my God, I think we have a kid.'”

Guan went into labor somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.

Branch’s mother told the Toronto Sun Guan had no idea she was expecting.

“She had no idea — she’s just a tiny little thing,” Sandy Branch said.

Guan took a pregnancy test a few weeks before the flight, however the test was negative.

Three doctors were on board the flight and helped welcome Chloe into the world.



    Most babies start kicking at some point in their development, and there are several other really good indicators that let an expant mother know that a blessed event is in her future.

      Bob, another bob, Eric Anderson, what ever your name is. Do you spend all day on here? You must be retired and possible divorced; am I right?

    If you suspect you might be pregnant and take a pregnancy test, you should still follow up with a dr. visit. Those tests are not 100%. Thank goodness there were doctors on board.
