A pregnant nun gave birth to a baby boy whom she named Francis. The incident caught all of Italy by surprise. The 31 year old, convent-dwelling nun said that she had no idea that she was pregnant.
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.
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.
