Unaware She Was Pregnant, Lucky Lady is on Same Flight As Crew When She Gives Birth Premature

When the plane took off, Lavinia “Lavi” Mounga was headed for a family vacation, but unbeknownst to even herself, that family was about to get one bouncing baby boy bigger.

The soon-to-be mom had no idea she was already 29 weeks along. “I just didn’t know I was pregnant, and then Raymond (the baby) just came out of nowhere,” Mounga said.
