A miracle or an excuse? A 32-year old nun has given birth to a baby boy in the city of Rieti, Italy. The Salvadorean nun, who belongs to the "Piccole Discepole di Gesù" or "Small Disciples of Christ" order, said that she didn't know she was pregnant.

After suffering unbearable abdominal pains, fellow nuns called for an ambulance on Wednesday morning. She was then rushed to the emergency ward at the S. Camillo De Lellis Hospital. Hours after, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, who weighed 3.5 kilograms (nine pounds).

According to the Italian news agency ANSA, the nun was completely unaware she was pregnant. "I did not know I was pregnant. I only felt a stomach pain," she told ANSA.

The nun, who asked not to be named for privacy reasons, stayed isolated at a convent in Campomoro, near the city of near Rieti.

Mothers at the maternity ward who donated clothes for the baby told ANSA that the sister wants to keep the baby. She is even planning to name the baby "Francesco," or Francis in english, possibly in honor of Pope Francis.

Fellow nuns were very surprised, ANSA added. "I guess she's telling the truth when she says she arrived at the hospital unaware of the pregnancy," a local priest said.

The hospital declined to comment on the report.
