A new mother, who went into labour during Elton John’s Coffs Harbour gig, has received a care package from the legendary singer.
Last Wednesday, the star announced that a woman went into labour during his concert the previous night, while he was singing Tiny Dancer.
“Last night, someone nearly gave birth at the show during Tiny Dancer,” Elton said to his fans.
“They were rushed to the hospital and they had a beautiful little boy, so that’s what we do to people.
“So if any of you are pregnant tonight, watch out.”
On Friday, Mary McGregor announced the arrival on their newborn, named Bam, on Facebook.
“So a lil update … we officially welcomed our beautiful son yesterday at 11.10, after the strangest 24 hours of our lives! Mary and bubs are both doing extremely well,” the post reads.
“Baby McGregor is a warrior and has surprised even his doctor with his turn around recovery.
“We did want to say a huge thank you to Sir Elton John, the production crew, the St Johns medics and all the beautiful doctors and nurses at the base hospital. We are so grateful and beyond overwhelmed at the nurturing spirit of everyone.”
“We had a surprise visit from a member of the production crew today who gifted little baby McGregor on behalf of everyone with some merchandise so that we’ll never forget his entry into the world. Best. Story. Ever.”
The baby was born at Coffs Harbour Hospital, not far away from the stadium Elton was performing at.
