GREENCASTLE, Ind. – A woman rushed to the hospital with what she thought was appendicitis ended up coming home with a baby.

Mandy Batchelor gave birth to a son just hours after getting to the hospital, WRTV reported.

Mandy said she didn’t even know she was pregnant.

According to the report, she said she never had any signs, except a little weight gain which she said was her usual winter weight gain.

WJW reported the couple had to scramble to come up with a name for the surprise boy.

“General Lee is my Mom’s grandpa and then Jacob was my dad’s grandpa,” the baby’s father said. “So both my great grandpas, I just put them together. Plus I have a General Lee car, so it just all worked out.”
