SYLVANIA, Ohio – An Ohio woman taken to a maternity ward in her wedding dress became a newlywed and a new mom on the same day.
Jamie Phillips says she felt contractions while her father walked her down the aisle during her wedding ceremony Saturday in Toledo in northwest Ohio, but she thought it was a false alarm. It wasn't until after her water broke at the reception that she was rushed to a hospital in Sylvania.
The baby boy, named Tova, wasn't due until March 7. His mother and her new husband, Mark Phillips, didn't think the baby would come quite so soon when they planned the wedding two weeks earlier.
The parents say they wanted to "do the right thing" and get married before the baby's arrival, which is why they cut things so close.
