A French tourist who said she had a whirlwind romance with a mystery man while on vacation three months ago on the Australian coast made a public plea Monday for information that could lead her back to the man she believes impregnated her during their brief encounter.
As love-affairs-that-begin-the-last-night-of-holiday go, this is not a unique one. Natalie Amyot's vacation in Mooloolaba was coming to an end. She attended a party at an Irish pub near the beach called O'Malley's and remembers meeting a man. It "was love at first sight."
He was tall, tanned from the beach, had blond hair and piercing blue eyes.
"We had a beautiful night," she said.
A worker from O'Malley's told FoxNews.com that it is the pub's longstanding policy not to comment on those who fall in and out of love at their establishment, so we'll have to take Amyot's word for it.
She left the next day and landed in Paris. When she looked to grab her phone, she realized it was lost, along with the phone number for the mystery man.
"I have no way of contacting him, and six weeks later, I found out that I'm pregnant," she said.
Her 24-hours-old YouTube video has gone viral and she started a Facebook page. She said she is back in Mooloolaba in search for the man and posted a photo of the white shoreline pressed against the blue sky.
One of the kinder Facebook commenters wrote, "Such a beautiful place for dreams to become a reality! Have that faith."
She gives preciously few details about the man and why it took three months to begin the search. But the story offers all that hear it the hope that love could strike when you least expect it. And when it does, to give it chase, even if it is on a beach nearly 10,000 miles away.
"There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved," Amyot quoted on her Facebook page.
