A mother of three got the surprise of her life when she gave birth to a full term baby in the shower thinking she was just 12 weeks pregnant.

Brittany Young, who lives in Des Moines, Iowa, was having intense pain on Wednesday so she got into the shower. Five minutes later, she gave birth to a baby girl.

The baby who is healthy and happy, and did not even cry, has been named Miracle.

The speedy labour is likely due to the fact that Young has had three other labors in just the past few years.

"I've been in shock for the last couple of days, because I didn't expect a full-term baby," Young said. "With my other kids, I had like three or four pushes. And with her it was just one and she was there."

Little Miracle meanwhile could not have done better in the situation.

"This baby's eyes were open; she was just sitting there staring at me. She didn't cry or anything," Young said. "I was in shock. I was like, there's a baby here."

A friend called an ambulance, and Miracle was treated and released back to her mother.
