Just as Pink kicked off her Beautiful Trauma gig at Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium, another party was also getting started.
Appropriately enough, Denise Jones, 32, reportedly went into labour during the very first song of the night: ‘Get The Party Started’.
Paramedics John Matthews and Dani Berg rushed through the thousands of Pink fans to get to Jones.

“When we reached her, it was quite clear the patient was heavily pregnant and showing signs of being in labor. We took the decision to move her as quickly as possible to the First Aid Room,” Matthews told Liverpool Echo.
“She was going to have to deliver the baby in the stadium as there was not enough time to get her to hospital.”
He added that there was also no time to be concerned or worried.
“It took less than five minutes… she did it all naturally, there was no time for pain relief.”
As for Jones, she joked that she was “gutted” to miss the concert but “couldn’t be happier” with her new bub, she even named her after the singer.
“The plan was to call her Dolly Louise but since she was born in the concert, we’ve changed it to Dolly Pink.”
