Baby born in Kia Carens, named Kia

Samantha Smyth didn’t make it to Poole Hospital in Dorset, England, in time for the birth of her daughter. She ended up giving birth in the back seat of her mother’s Kia Carens in the wee hours of November 15, 2009.

The baby girl, who was going to be called Tilly, was named Kia in honor of her unusual birthplace. Samantha noted:

I don’t think we would have used Volkswagen or Citroen.

Several days after Kia’s birth, Kia Motors generously gave the young family a Kia Carens of their very own.
