Pregnant Nun Shocks Italy

A nun got pregnant in Italy. The pregnant nun well into adulthood gave birth to a baby boy recently. She felt pain in her abdomen which she thought was a case of stomach cramps. The Roman Catholic nun was rushed to a nearby hospital where the delivery took place. 

The nun, whose privacy has been respected, has named her son Francis. Whether this is in honor of Pope Francis or Saint Francis of Assisi is a disputed fact. The small town of Rieti in Italy was where this shocking incident took place. 

When questioned, the nun said she had not the slightest idea that she was pregnant. What can one say to that? Many people at the hospital have donated clothes and stuff for the infant the nun gave birth to. 

Meanwhile, the town mayor has urged the public to refrain from scandal mongering and allow the nun her right to confidentiality. 

The rest of the sisters at the convent expressed ignorance as to how she became pregnant in the first place. They have further volunteered to take care of the baby boy on a collective basis. 

While there is such a thing as parthenogenesis (virgin birth) in Nature, it is a very rare phenomenon. Very few women can claim to give birth without the previous accompaniment of sexual intercourse or technologically assisted methods of fertilization. 

For now, it remains a mystery whether or not the nun had any relations with someone before the birth of her baby son.
