Oops, wrong lede….
A Burbank woman went into labor on Labor Day — something she didn’t plan for because she didn’t even know she was pregnant.
Jeff Parungoa called 911 and “I go: ‘I think my wife’s having a baby. But we’re not pregnant.’ I told her, and she’s like: ‘Excuse me?’”
His wife, Jennifer Favela, was pregnant, all right. She gave birth to a boy after 4 a.m.
Favela said she did not expect to be expecting. “Shocked is an understatement,” the new mom said. “I woke up in the middle of the night just thinking I had a stomachache.”
But all of a sudden, her water broke. The 35-year old mother of a 13- and 7-year-old said she never had morning sickness but did have what she thought were light periods.
As for the weight gain, Parungao said he did say something to his wife last week. “I told her, ‘Hey, we need to do something. Man, you’re gaining weight.’”
That’s how things work in Burbank. One day you get up and can’t figure out what just happened.
Like, who knew?
