It seemed like a normal day for supermarket assistant manager Malcolm Comeau. However, his normal day was quickly flipped upside down when he began to hear screams from the women’s bathroom. As he opened the door, he found something he had never seen throughout his 30 years on the job.
Normal Day At The Grocery Store
Ashleigh Miller-Cross was doing her normal grocery store shopping on April 28, 2017. At the same time, assistant store manager, Malcolm Comeau was on duty at his desk doing his normal daily tasks. Everything thing was going smoothly and both were having an average day. However, that soon changed.
Around noon that day, as Comeau was checking on some paperwork in his office, he began hearing loud screams. He soon realized these screams were coming from the women’s bathroom. Without hesitation, he opened the door. He found Miller-Cross screaming in agony. After observing the situation, he figured out why.
She’s Having A Baby
“I came out of my office and I heard somebody screaming in the washroom. . . so I went to see what was going on and she’s halfway through delivering a baby,” Comeau said in a phone interview with Herald News. His instincts kicked in and he quickly dialed 911 as well as rushed to find the doctor from the medical clinic in the store.
She Didn’t Know She Was Pregnant
The birth was not only a shock to the assistant store manager but also to Miller-Cross. She had no idea she was pregnant. She had just given birth to her first child 10 months previously and just thought she did not lose the baby weight. She did not grow in size nor had any cravings. Luckily, her new baby boy was born completely healthy.
Soon after the birth, Miller-Cross and her family returned to the superstore. The assistant manager was there to present them with a gift – a box of diapers. However, it wasn’t one box they would receive, but one box per month for the whole year! Due to the popularity of the family’s story, a local photographer approached the family about doing a unique baby photoshoot free of charge. Luckily, that clever photoshoot was shared with the world (see below).
