Sonia Holgate of Essex, England, went into labor in February of 2008. She and her husband Craig drove to Queen’s Hospital in Romford, but didn’t make it past the parking lot–their baby girl was born in the back seat of the car, with the help of medical personnel. One of the medics noticed that “Chasing Pavements” by Adele [vid] was playing on the car radio, so he suggested that Sonia and Craig name their daughter Adele. And so they did.
What was the singer’s response?
That’s so lovely of them. I’m really flattered. I’d love to give them a hug.
