Pink Fan Responds to Comments after Being Criticized for Giving Birth during a Concert
A fan gave birth to a baby girl during Pink's concert in Anfield Stadium just as Pink began to sing, "Let's Get This Party Started."
The most unbelievable thing happened on Tuesday evening when Pink took to the stage. The crowd got explosive, and Denise Jones, one of Pink's fans went into labour right in the stadium.
The paramedics present at the concert were Dani Berg and John Matthews; when they discovered what was about to happen, they both sprung into action, penetrating through the massive crowd to get to Jones.
As they approached Jones, they found that she was already in labour and decided to move her to the first aid room below the main stand where they stood because it was already too late to go to a hospital.
Matthew, one of the paramedics present during the event revealed that the new mom had to give birth to her baby naturally because there weren't any painkillers available as no one was particularly planning on having a baby in a stadium.

Matthew also remarked how incredibly fast the labour was, within 5 minutes, Jones became "a mommy." Berg, the second paramedic present, explained that the crowd worked in favour of Jones as they assisted in moving her to the First aid room.
“If it hadn’t been for them, we would have had to deliver the baby in the main stand with 4,600 people watching us. It brought a whole new meaning to the Pink song, ‘I’m coming out so you better get the party started!'”
The new mom was excited about having her new baby, although she complained about missing the concert, she named her child, "Dolly Pink" contrary to "Dolly Louise" which was initially the intended name for the baby.
“But I couldn’t be any happier right now! The plan was to call her Dolly Louise, but since she was born in the concert, we’ve changed it to Dolly Pink.”
However, a fan had mixed feelings about Jones appearing in the stadium in the first place with her condition saying that Jones shouldn't have come for the concert considering the distance and the fact that her movement might cause harm to "Vibrations and Noise Levels."
Shouldn't be going to a gig that far in a pregnancy anyway. Glad baby is OK tho. It can do harm vibration and noise levels— nuttyb (@Nuttyb80) June 26, 2019
She was replied by someone else who said:
"So... Are you a doctor? Do you have some inside information on this story? Like, how far along mom was, if the baby came early, or if she got doctor approval? My ob never had an issue. Sometimes saying congratulations is all that is needed. Other times silence is golden."

The baby is very healthy and weighs 6 pounds, 4.5 ounces.
