A Pink fan has delivered a baby in Liverpool's Anfield Stadium last night while watching her musical hero in concert.
The party got started earlier than expected when Denise Jones went into labour during Pink's set.
The 32-year-old welcomed a baby girl with the aid of two on-site medics while the singer performed high-flying opening song Get The Party Started.

Of course, Denise simply had to give a tribute to her idol with the choice of baby name. The new mum called her daughter Dolly Pink to remember the concert where her newborn baby was unexpectedly born.
"Baby Dolly Pink: Born at Anfield while watching Pink in concert! Mum and baby are doing amazing, thank you to the amazing paramedics that delivered her!" Chloe Dryhurst wrote on Twitter.
Medics John Matthews and Dani Berg threw themselves into the action after receiving a call about a pregnant woman in labour, and they navigated through fans across Anfield to locate her.
Matthews told The Liverpool Echo, that they moved Denise out of the crowd and into the first aid room as fast as possible;
“When we reached her, it was quite clear the patient was heavily pregnant and showing signs of being in labour."
“We continued to assess her and established she was going to have to deliver the baby in the stadium as there was not enough time to get her to hospital,” he continued.
Jones delivered the baby “all naturally” and without “pain relief,” due to the lack of equipment or supplies in the stadium.

“It took less than five minutes,” Matthews explained. “We didn’t have time to get concerned or worried, we just had to crack on and get on with it.”
The birth was without complications, thankfully, and Jones welcomed her little girl weighing six pounds, four-and-a-half ounces. Mother and baby are said to be doing very well.
Dolly Pink's original name was Dolly Louise, Jones thought a change needed to be made given the surprising circumstances.
“I’m still massively in shock, just a bit gutted I missed the concert,” Denise joked. “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.”
The Walk Me Home singer made sure to give the newborn her stamp of approval, writing to her Instagram page; “Dolly Pink wanted to get the party started".
We're fairly sure she's going to grow up into a music icon herself.
