And in your “WTF?” news of the day, a Salvadoran nun was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday after experiencing weird stomach cramps that turned out to be labor pains. Because, oh yeah, she was pregnant.

The 31-year-old nun claims she had no clue she was with child, despite the baby weighing a healthy nine pounds at delivery. “I did not know I was pregnant. I only felt a stomach pain,” she was quoted as saying by Italian news agency ANSA.

Hospital officials have yet to explain how the nun became pregnant (because it surely couldn’t have been through sexytime), but a local pastor told reporters, “I guess she’s telling the truth when she says she arrived at the hospital unaware of the pregnancy.”

Her fellow sisters at the the unnamed nun’s “Little Disciples of Jesus” convent in Italy were quoted as saying they were “very surprised.” I bet.

ANSA reports that the nun decided to keep the baby boy named Francisco after the current pope. The hospital is currently taking donations.
