Woman Had No Clue She Was Pregnant on Flight to Tokyo

In the span of a 10-hour flight from Canada to Toyko on Sunday, a woman's life changed when she began experiencing stomach pains. Hours later, she gave birth to a baby girl that she had no idea she was even carrying.

According to Canada's Global News, Ada Guan and her partner, Wesley Branch, were filmed exiting the Air Canada flight, waving to reporters while Branch cradled their newborn, Chloe.

Branch mentioned that Guan had gained a little bit of weight recently but was not concerned. She had even taken a pregnancy test, which did not detect the pregnancy. When she boarded the flight to Toyko, she had no idea that the butterflies she felt would turn into something much more meaningful.

And it was on Mother's Day, no less.

Branch's mother, Sandra Branch, recounts the story to reporters at Global News, describing how after her pains increased she was moved to business class and doctors aboard the plane assisted by offering her Tylenol and an IV, which did not alleviate the symptoms.

"She didn't know what was happening to her," Sandra Branch told Global News.

"She told me, 'Something fell out of me,' " Wesley Branch said. "I lifted up her pants, and I saw a head, and then I heard, 'Wah.'"

"I couldn't imagine. This happened completely unexpected," Branch said.

The birth happened so quickly that passengers were shocked when the captain announced the new passenger over the intercom.

To celebrate the birth, Air Canada tweeted that both mother and child are "safe and sound" in Tokyo.
