Dad Springs Surprise Wedding On Fiancee While She Is In Labour

Mum Brandi Wetzel would most definitely have been forgiven for saying, 'Er, I'm a bit busy at the moment' when her fiancé sprung a romantic surprise on her.

For she was in the middle of a labour with her second child when boyfriend James Anderson decided it was a good time to tie the knot – and we're not talking about the umbilical one!

Brandi was in hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, preparing for the imminent birth of her baby girl when James popped out to a do a bit of shopping.

In fact, James had gone off to do some last-minute ring shopping.

Then he returned to North Hills Hospital with his father-in-law, who is a preacher, to exchange wedding vows.

Talk about choosing your moment!

Helpful nurses decorated the very expectant mother's birthing room, draping white sheets over the window.

And as Brandi's KTVT: "The dad came out and told us that he wanted to get married. At first, we didn't think he meant now."

James said that he'd proposed because he did not like the idea of Brandi, whom he became engaged to last August, having their daughter without a ring on her finger.
