PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A woman who had no idea she was pregnant has spoken of her shock after giving birth outside Asda. The supermarket shared congratulations on Facebook last night (Monday, February 22), after employee Dean Strawman and his partner of seven years Delyth Jones unexpectedly became parents. Their newborn son Harry was delivered in the car park of the Pwllheli store in Wales, the Manchester Evening News reports. Asda's post said he made a "dramatic unexpected entrance into the world" just as 26-year-old Dean, who works at the store, was finishing his shift. It revealed: "Oblivious to the drama that was unfolding just feet away [he] only found out he was going to be a dad when he got home. "The couple had no idea that Delyth, who's a home carer for elderly and vulnerable people, was pregnant. "When her contractions started she thought it was appendicitis. "Her mum Andrea and sister Kate – who also works at Asda Pwllheli – called an ambulance, but when the crew arrived it was clear she was in labour." They were headed for the nearest maternity ward 30 miles away in Bangor, but the labour was progressing so rapidly that they had to pull over en-route in the supermarket's car park - coincidentally, where Dean works. Delyth, 25, said she was "shocked but delighted" by the unexpected addition to their family. She said: "I've had a pain like that before and had been rushed in before, so assumed it was something similar.

"When they got there the pain changed and the next thing I knew I was on the floor. Then half an hour later he was born." 'She wasn't showing' Kate, who works on the store's customer service desk, said: "We rushed over to help because she wasn't feeling well and we thought it was appendicitis. "At one point she said, 'I think I'm having a baby', and we laughed. So it was quite a shock when it turned out she was right! "She really had no idea she was pregnant. She wasn't showing and didn't feel the baby move." Delyth did not have time for any pain relief before Harry was born, weighing in at 7lbs 7oz.

"The community midwife was around and jumped in the ambulance at Asda and 10 minutes later he was delivered. "I said to them, 'Tell me I haven't just given birth in Asda' and they said I had – and that it would be listed as his place of birth on his birth certificate. "It must be fate that he was born at Asda with our connections there." Asda says that Delyth and Dean, who have been a couple for seven years, have been telling shocked friends and family their wonderful news. 'I wouldn't change any of it' Delyth said: "It's been such a whirlwind, but it's been so good and I have absolutely loved it. I wouldn't change any of it. "Dean knew I'd had a couple of pains the night before and knew I wasn't well, but we decided he should go to work as usual. "He arrived home just as I was giving birth in Asda. My mum knew he was coming back, so waited for him and told him what was going on. As soon as he found out he was ecstatic. "We knew we were going to have children one day, but hadn't planned for this." Kate, one of Asda's employees, added: "We're all slightly shocked, but very happy. A couple of people said they'd seen the ambulance in the car park, but everyone was oblivious to what was going on inside. "Everyone's overjoyed, and I'm ecstatic. "I think Delyth and Dean are still in shock and a bit of a state of disbelief – especially Dean! "It's wonderful news though. It's all been a bit doom and gloom recently with everything that's going on in the world, so it's given us all something to smile about."
