An Australian woman spent nine months completely unaware that she was pregnant. The possibility only crossed the 28-year-old's mind as gave birth in her shower, all by herself.

Dimitty Bonnet, a mother of two, and her husband Jason Bonnet, 42, from the Australian State of New South Wales thought their family was complete and had given up hopes for another child until they were surprised by the arrival of their third baby on Feb. 26, 2022, Wales Online reported.

Dimitty felt "a bit off" in the evening that day and put her kids to sleep early before she went to sleep. In the middle of the night, Dimitty got up feeling unwell and decided to take a shower. While in the shower, she felt a sudden urge to push and managed to hold the newborn's head between her legs. Even before Jason could arrive to help her, the baby made its way.

"I felt a sudden urge to push, and the next thing I knew, I was holding a baby’s head," Dimitty recollected.

Jason called the emergency officers for help and they arrived in 15 minutes, just in time to help Dimitty deliver the placenta. Both Dimitty and her newborn were then rushed to a hospital, and were monitored for the next 24 hours.

The couple named their new baby boy Harvey Eric Barry Timmins.

Until the surprise delivery of Timmins in the shower, Dimitty had regular periods and even had a negative pregnancy test a few weeks before. Dimitty also did not suspect pregnancy when she gained weight recently and shrugged off it as lockdown weight gain.

"My weight has fluctuated my whole life, so I didn’t think anything of it when I put on a few pounds. I assumed it was just a bit of lockdown weight, and it was nothing too noticeable," Dimitty said.

Unaware of the pregnancy, Dimitty had a flight trip just a month before the delivery and had an x-ray done six weeks prior to the delivery, Edinburgh Live reported.

Meanwhile, Dimitty said although the whole experience was a huge shock for her and the family, they were all excited by the new bundle of joy.

"It was such a huge shock that the first few days are a bit of a blur. My older kids were so excited when we told them, particularly my daughter as she’s always wanted to be a big sister. She’s so caring and has taken on her new role really well," Dimitty added.
