Out of the aria! NY opera singer gives birth on a highwaymain
New York mezzo-soprano Emily Geller was on her way to maternity hospital in Connecticut when her baby decided not to wait for a cue.
Emily announces: Welcome to the world, Rosemary Claire Hardman! She arrived “fast and furious” on May 15 at 5:47 a.m., and is living proof that we can do hard things.
She told a news site: “It went from ‘Pull over’… to ‘There’s a baby,’ in less than a minute… With the next contraction, her entire body came out.”
Her husband Travis Hardman, CEO of Cantata Media, was behind the wheel.
We’ve heard of singers coming in too early, but this one is rather special.

That fast? At least partly a testament to the power of a singer’s core and breathing apparatus, surely?
Fabulous and correct point! Singers’ training gives them PERFECT “skill” for pushing babies out!
