Woman Gives Birth in Chick-Fil-A, Earns Baby Free Nuggets for Life

A child born inside a San Antonio-area Chick-Fil-A this week may very well be spending a lot of time in this establishment as she gets older.

Allow us to explain…

mim, kid

On Tuesday night, a woman named Falon Griffin started to feel intense contractions and therefore headed to University Hospital with her husband, Robert.

Prior to their arrival, though, the couple met a family friend in the parking lot of a Chick-Fil-A in order to drop off their two oldest daughters while Falon went and gave birth.

But the mother-to-be felt a strong urge to use the bathroom there, knocking on the door of the closed restaurant and convincing an employee to let her in.

“I didn’t know I was going to have a baby in there! I was going to the restroom,” Falon said afterward to KSAT-TV.

Indeed, not long after entering the stall, Falon knew she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital.

Her baby girl was on the way!

“I’m about to dial 911, I open the door and she’s just screaming,” said Brenda Enriquez, the Chick-Fil-A store director who was on the premises at the time.

Enriquez proceeded to grab some towels, scream for Robert Griffin and tell him to go to work. He’d have to deliver his own child.

“I looked at her and said, ‘We’re going to do it right here, right now,'” Robert said.

Falon said her and her baby, who the couple named Gracelyn, were considered high-risk throughout her pregnancy. So she was understandably nervous.

“I’m in excruciating pain. He’s not skilled. I don’t know what’s about to happen right now. I don’t know if she’s going to come out alive,” Falon recounts of her feelings during labor.

Robert, however, was up for the task… and then some.

Not only did he deliver his third kid safely, he did so after a very scary moment that could have resulted in her death.

“I stopped her at her shoulders because I saw what looked to be a white collar around her neck, and it was the cord that had been wrapped around her neck twice,” Robert says.

Yet he managed to successfully unwrap it and bring his daughter into the world in one, healthy piece.

“All I cared about at the end of the day was the baby was breathing, and by the time they [first responders] arrived, she was pink, thankfully for those blankets for keeping her warm,” Falon says.

EMS arrived about 10 minutes after Gracelyn was born and transported mother and baby to the hospital.

But that isn’t where this amazing story ends, not quite.

Gracelyn will now have Chick-Fil-A for life, the chain has announed, at no cost — and she’s guaranteed her first job at age 14!

The franchise owners are already helping plan her first birthday party at their restaurant as well.

Talk about a lucky little nugget!

Jinger Duggar Gives Birth to First Child!

SHE’S HERE!

Following months of anticipation and numerous updates on Instagram, Jinger Duggar and husband Jeremy Vuolo welcomed their first child into the world very early on Thursday morning.

She was born at 4:37 a.m., according to the very proud and exciting father himself.

“God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.,” Vuolo said in a statement not too long ago, adding:

“Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well.

“We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

The couple got married in November of 2016 and announced in January of this year that they were expecting.

They did so via a message that read as follows:

The past fourteen months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage.

We both looked forward to the joys of marriage but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be.

Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: we are expecting our first child.

We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.

A few months later, in April, Jinger and Jeremy revealed that they were expecting a girl.

Citing their own parents this time around, the TLC star said:

“We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this Summer.

“We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love.”

Just a few days ago, Jinger posted her final baby bump photo on social media, making it clear to followers that she was so very close to popping.

Previous to this update, Duggar had posed with a chalkboard and her growing stomach on a near-weekly basis, keeping fans apprised of her progress by comparing the size of her fetus to cantaloupes, bell peppers and pumpkins.

You can see what we mean here:

Jinger seemed to have a relatively calm and healthy pregnancy overall.

(Easy for us to sit back from a distance and say, we know.)

“I do think probably what surprised me most is just being so tired all the time,” she told Us Weekly at one point in her journey, adding that Jeremy had been a massive help in terms of being in charge of meals and:

“I was never a napper, like having to take a nap, and now it’s like, ‘Ooh! I think I want to nap every day!”

That’s good.

She’s been catching up on her sleep prior to likely not getting any for awhile.

Felicity Nicole Vuolo, meanwhile, will be in good company:

Duggar’s sister, Joy-Anna, welcomed a son named Gideon with husband Austin Forsyth in February of this year.

Also, their sister-in-law, Kendra, gave birth to a son named Garrett David with husband Joseph Duggar on June 8.

You’ll be able to learn plenty more about Jinger’s pregnancy and first child when Counting On returns with new episodes in July 30 at 9/8c.

Here’s a preview:

Oh, and one more thing of course:

CONGRATULATIONS TO JINGER AND JEREMY!

Your baby is absolutely adorable and we wish you the best of luck as parents.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton: Due to Give Birth on the Same Day?

We recently discussed the report that Meghan Markle is expecting a boy and a girl — fraternal twins — with Prince Harry.

There is also a report that Kate Middleton is already pregnant with her fourth royal baby.

A new report confirms them both … and says that Kate and Meghan may end up giving birth on the same day

A new InTouch cover gleefully announces this story to the world.

“They’re both pregnant!” the cover proclaims.

The cover goes on to proclaim that both Kate and Meghan are “due the same day!”

That would be a real gamechanger, though, as we all know, due dates are more of an educated guess.

“A girl for Kate,” the headline continues. “And twins for Meghan!”

InTouch’s report continues with further details.

“Meghan,” they explain. “Conceived just a few weeks after Kate.”

And apparently this has forged a closer knit between the two duchesses.

“Kate and Meghan bonded over the men they married,” they reveal. “Now they’re bonding over being pregnant together.”

It wasn’t so long ago that the two were rumored to be royally feuding, but this report says that “That’s all water under the bridge now.”

InTouch offers a few more details.

“Meghan,” they say. “Wants to give birth in the U.S.”

Some people are more comfortable giving birth at home. Especially when that means that their child will also be an American citizen.

The repot says that, because Meghan’s “due date is around the same time as Kate’s,” there’s a very real possibility that “they could give birth the same day!”

“While the pregnancies are the subject of plenty of palace buzz,” the report confides. “The duchesses have only shared their news with a small group of friends and family.”

That all sounds so exciting.

But, as Gossip Cop points out, there are some apparent holes in the story.

First of all, InTouch says that the “palace confirms.” Kensington Palace has done no such thing, and reportedly said as much to Gossip Cop.

Second of all, do they have the same due date or are their due dates merely close to each other?

We know that due dates can sometimes be given as a range, but … it sounds like the story isn’t entirely straight.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Meghan and Harry were recently spotted on a lunch date in Dublin.

The two shared some beer with lunch. That might be standard in the British Isles, but it’s definitely not something that anyone should do when pregnant.

The world has just seen photos of Prince Louis’s Christening. Kate’s youngest looks so precious and cute — and Kate herself looks so radiant — that it’s easy to understand why people are eager for another royal baby.

(Or three)

But there is no indication that Kate or Meghan are pregnant.

Remember, Kate has extremely bad morning sickness — which is how we were able to predict her pregnancy last year a couple of weeks before it was announced.

And Meghan, as we mentioned, was washing down her lunch with Guiness.

Reports like these are always tempting because they can be exciting, but let’s keep a cool head and wait for news that we can verify.

We just got the latest royal baby a couple of months ago. We can be patient.

Cardi B Gives Birth to First Child! EVER!

For Cardi B and Offset, first came love… then came marriage

… now has come a baby in, we presume at some point, a baby carriage.

It’s true: Cardi B just gave birth to her first child!

The beloved artist made this very exciting announcement herself, doing so in very Cardi B-like fashion:

Via a naked photo on Instagram, along with the date of the child’s birth (yesterday, July 10, 2018) and her gender (a girl) and her unique name: Kulture Kiari.

Yes, Kulture Kiari.

Gotta imagine the Kardashians are either very excited about that name or very angry that Cardi B totally stole their gimmick.

“Kulture Kiari Cephus 07/10/18 @offsetyrn,” wrote Cardi B as a caption to the image below.

The rapper kept her pregnancy a secret for months before finally revealing her bump during her stint as a musical guest on an April episode of Saturday Night Live.

“I’m finally free!” the 25-year-old said as she walked off stage from her performance.

Since then, she has talked openly about the pregnancy, as well as about her relationship with Offset.

Heck, she even admitted that she considered an abortion because she learned about the pregnancy, which was NOT planned, at the exact time her career was taking off.

But then Cardi realized the position she’s in and explained:

“I just didn’t want to deal with the whole abortion thing. I’m a grown woman, I’m 25 years old, I’m gonna say this in the most humblest way: I’m a schmillionaire. I’m prepared for this.”

Cardi and Offset, meanwhile, actually got married in September.

They just didn’t tell anyone at the time.

“There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments!” she wrote in a Twitter note, adding recently:

“Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other.”

Offset is the father of three children from previous relationships – two sons, Jordan and Kody; and a daughter Kalea Marie.

Cardi B has been happy to put trolls who question their romance and who question having a child with a multi-time baby daddy in their rightful place.

Wendy Williams, as always, was one of those trolls.

Offset was also caught cheating on Cardi B awhile back, but the singer was able to move past that rather huge obstacle.

“We didn’t want to lose each other,” Cardi simply said of that issue.

As for whether motherhood will change her schedule? Cardi B has said the following:

“What I envision is my tour bus has my own personal room and I just want to be with my baby. Only time I don’t have my baby with me is when I’m getting my hair done, makeup done, performing.

“I don’t want to miss one second. I don’t want to miss no smiles, I don’t want to miss no new movement, I don’t want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter.”

We love it! 

Congrats to the new parents!

Jinger Duggar on Giving Birth: I’m Terrified, Y’all!

Not long after the world learned that Jinger Duggar is pregnant, the beloved reality star revealed her due date to be sometime in early July.

Now, we suppose different folks have different definitions, but for most people, that would mean any date between July 1 and July 15.

What we’re saying is, if it’s not already passed, Jinger’s due date is very, very close.

And it seems that even though birthing and child-rearing have pretty much been parts of her day-to-day life since childhood, Jinger is currently experiencing the heady mix of emotions that every first time goes through in the final stages of pregnancy.

Speaking with TLC recently, Jinger revealed that she’s more than a little frightened by the prospect of giving birth.

“I get scared thinking about birth and labor,” she told her home network.

Her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, didn’t offer much in the way of help, admitting that he’s flat-out clueless about the entire process:

“I don’t know much about birth,” he said.

Like we said, Jinger must know a thing or two about birth, what with having 13 younger siblings and 10 nieces and nephews.

But in many ways, she and Jeremy are in uncharted territory.

From the very start, they established that their marriage would be different from those of Jinger’s sisters.

The most obvious act of rebellion, of course, was Jinger’s decision to begin wearing pants instead of floor-length dresses (with her husband’s permission of course).

But the couple also set themselves apart in more subtle ways.

Jinger waited a full year after her wedding to get pregnant.

Obviously, there’s nothing unusual about that in most cases, but Duggar women typically get pregnant on their honeymoons.

And soon, Jinger will become the first Duggar woman of her generation to give birth outside of the great state of Arkansas.

Again, that may not seem like a big deal, but the Duggars are second only to the Waltons as Arkansas’ most famous family, and their ties to their hometown are very strong.

Anyway, it’s refreshing to see Jinger being so candid about her trepidation — we suppose that’s just one more way in which she’s breaking the mold.

Watch Counting On online to get caught up on the show that made her family famous before the season premiere later this summer.

Kenya Moore: FIRED Because She Won’t Give Birth on Camera?!

Earlier this month, Kenya Moore silenced trolls and decried false stories about her, her husband, and her pregnancy.

But … was part of that just bluster to cover up a huge problem with her reality career?

A new report says that Kenya is not only no longer a Real Housewife, but that she’ll be lucky if she makes “Friend of the Housewives” status.

RadarOnline reports that The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars were spotted filming without Kenya Moore.

Specifically, their sources spotted NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Marlo Hampton, Cynthia Bailey, and even Eva Marcille.

(Eva, as you may recall, is not only a new mom but a new full-time Real Housewife)

These women were all spotted at Novikov in Miami.

Kenya was, they report, nowhere to be seen.

According to RadarOnline‘s source, these stars were in town to support NeNe Leakes’ fashion show and Swagg Boutique store opening.

The source described their dining choices, as well — something that may be significant.

“The ladies dined on king crab legs,” the insider reveals. “With honey truffles, caviar, and wagyu steaks along with Wasabi martinis.”

That definitely sounds … opulent.

(We will get into why the menu may help to explain everything in a moment)

RadarOnline has reported that Kenya’s reality career is in danger, saying: “Kenya’s status as a ‘friend’ is in jeopardy because she is holding up the deal.”

“Kenya was told she would have to take a drastic pay cut,” the insider adds.

That is interesting to hear, given that Kenya has gone above and beyond to deny rumors that her reality career is on the line.

The source continues, claiming: “And there was no guarantee about how many episodes she would appear in, or if she would appear in any at all.”

Kenya didn’t like it when fans questioned her pregnancy and she eventually showed evidence that she really is with child.

Will she do the same again for her status as a Real Houswife? Or is this rumor true?

Kenya Moore Early Ultrasound

Kenya not only shared a photo of her baby bump to silence doubters, she later went on to let fans see part of one of her early ultrasounds from the doctor’s office.

But this pregnancy might help explain away her absence from that dinner in Miami.

See, it includes multiple seafood items. The women were also drinking martinis.

Guess what pregnant woman are not advised to have for dinner? Any of that.

So, though we know that RadarOnline has multiple sources, some might suggest that the simplest explanation for Kenya’s absence from dinner was that she didn’t want to be surrounded by costars eating and drinking things that she herself cannot.

But RadarOnline reports that an insider claims that she’s basically done on the show. 

“At this point,” the insider claims. “The show is ready to move along without her at all.”

Why? Well … timing.

The source alleges: “Bringing Kenya back full-time would be useless.”

That sounds kind of mean to us. But they just mean that, allegedly, Kenya’s pregnancy is less than optimal for the show’s schedule.

“Her pregnancy timeline conflicts with the production schedule,” the insider explains. “She said she’s due in November/December but production wraps in October.”

Hmmm. That’s definitely something to consider.

Still, perhaps Kenya can prove to producers that she’s worth her (pregnant) weight in cash even if her childbirth happens during hiatus.
