A woman laughed so much during a show by Beijing's stand-up comedian Guo Degang on Saturday night that she gave birth prematurely to a girl.
Ma Lusha, a big fan of Guo, was 38-week pregnant and was watching Guo's gags and banter in Guangzhou, capital Guangdong Province when she suddenly felt her baby was coming out.
She was immediately sent to a nearby hospital by his husband and a girl was born a few hours later, Anhui Business News reported today.
"I love Guo's standup comedies very much. I never missed his shows," said Ma, a native of Anhui Province. "My doctor said my expected delivery date was several days later so I felt assured," she added.
Ma contributed her daughter's premature birth to Guo's humor. The artist also blessed her with a post on his Weibo microblog. "I hope you are safe and happy."
Ma felt very lucky and wished her idol would find a name for her girl, but Guo declined politely, the paper said.
