According to The New Zealand Herald, 25-year-old Rebecca Oldham says she had three scans, two blood tests and six pregnancy tests to try to explain her severe abdominal cramping.

The woman was admitted to the hospital to have her ovaries removed — but doctors instead performed a C-section, and discovered a nine-pound baby!

That happened in November, and since then, doctors have been investigating how this pregnancy was missed.

Oldham says she’s hoping the findings of the investigation will help to provide closure for her and her partner.

The couple already had a 20-month-old son when their unexpected son named James came into the world.

“I was facing not being able to have any more children because they thought there were problems with my ovaries and all of a sudden we had a son!” Oldham said.

  • What!

    Her partner? So she went and got laid by a guy and didn’t tell her “partner” That is some serious crazy eyes on her.

    I’m a doll, and don’t need your affirmation, Shara, so GFY. I also don’t have crazy eyes. She does. Do you?

      Well it’s a good thing you have an (self proclaimed) appealing physical appearance to offer because it seems your other redeeming characteristics may be severely lacking.

      A doll is sweet. You’re not. You may have a pretty face, but you’re ugly inside. When you’re old, you won’t be so good-looking anymore, and you’ll also be alone because nobody will put up with your lousy attitude once your looks are gone.

      I had a friend who did not know she was pregnant until 6 months. She once was told she would never have children and her monthly cycle was not normal. Not knowing you are pregnant DOES happen.

  • guess who

    Ignorant people are so quick to judge people they don’t even know. SMH.. such craziness… maybe the folks that judging this young lady need to F**k each other.. Now GFY!!!!

      …because you’re not judging. Oh no. Not you. PS you’re stupid. Also, I’m judging, but I know it. SELF AWARENESS.

    I truly hope this is seriously truthful news. I am in New York and we haven’t seen anything like this here. Is there and can there be more report on this? Just for society reasons. People are jerks about judging something false or true.

  • Marie

    So glad the baby is fine.
    Please don’t make comments about how someone looks.
    I have a granddaughter with eyes like that and she has a health issue.
    Judging people by their looks is wrong.
