Brooke Williams was told that she would never have biological children after she had a brain tumor as a child.
But on Sunday, the Provo, Utah woman and her husband, Calvin, unexpectedly welcomed their very own baby girl into the world, KSL News reports.
Brooke did not know she was pregnant until just a few hours before she gave birth to her daughter in an emergency C-section. She and her husband went to their local hospital emergency room on Sunday after Brooke began experiencing seizures, according to the report.
After a series of tests, the medical team told Brooke that her bloodwork showed a level “common with someone who is pregnant,” Calvin said. The couple was shocked. Calvin admitted that they were the type of couple who were always skeptical of surprise pregnancies.
“She never had any sickness. She never felt her stomach move,” the husband said.
Doctors delivered the baby via C-section later on Sunday because of Brooke’s seizures. The baby girl was born about a month prematurely, but her father said she is doing well.

“It’s crazy, it’s a miracle,” he said. “Without any prenatal care, being a month early. She’s 5 pounds 8 ounces, 18 inches long and she’s great.”
“I just honestly stared at her and didn’t know … like ‘oh, that’s mine,’” he added. “It’s been crazy. I’ve had every emotion, really.”
The couple named their daughter Gracie Mae. A fundraiser has been set up to help the family.
