A man and a woman tied the knot in an improvised wedding ceremony just 30 seconds before they welcome their first child on Memorial Day.
Michael Gallardo and Marie Margaritondo, from Westfield, New Jersey, had to get married a few weeks before they had their son, also known as Michael, in a small, intimate wedding.
However, when Marie broke three weeks earlier than the couple expected on Monday, May 27, they had to improvise.
Wow! Michael Gallardo and Marie Margaritondo marry in an improvised ceremony at the hospital 30 seconds before their baby was born after the water of the new mother unexpectedly broke
Adorable: the couple, who were planning to get married before they had the baby, wanted to get married before they had their child, because they did not treat each other as & # 39; fiance & # 39; on the birth certificate
The new mother was in a hurry Morristown Medical Center, where she tied the knot less than a minute before delivery with her now husband.
The couple's reason to get married before they had their child was because they did not treat each other as & # 39; fiance & # 39; on the baby's birth certificate.
That is why they asked the hospital staff if they could marry or not because they already had their marriage license.
To the delight of the couple, a chaplain who happened to be in the hospital, performed the wedding ceremony for the couple.
The couple were surrounded by their best friends and family, holding the knot, which made the trial even more special.
After officially getting married, the couple prepared for a new important milestone.
Just 30 seconds after the couple shared their first kiss as a married couple, it was time for Marie to have the baby.
She was quickly taken to the operating room, where doctors performed a caesarean section – a process of performing an operation to free a baby.
Praise: Michael praised the staff at Morristown Medical Center, as well as the chaplain who was on call at the hospital, for the entire experience to run smoothly
The son of the happy couple, Michael Preston Gallardo, was born shortly thereafter.
Speaking of experience, the new father praised hospital workers for their hard work and dedication to grant him and his partner's wishes.
& # 39; The nurses were scrambling, & # 39; Michael said. & # 39; One tried to be ordered online, someone went out and picked flowers for a bouquet, others followed Marie and the baby's vitals.
& # 39; They were like angels – meant to be there & # 39 ;, he said about the staff and the chaplain who performed the ceremony for herself and Marie.
When he described the wedding ceremony himself, Michael said it was & # 39; beautiful & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; It was like a real ceremony, & # 39; he said. & # 39; Our mothers were there. We had flowers. We exchanged vows.
& # 39; It was beautiful & # 39 ;, said Michael, who said that Marie was quickly taken to the emergency room after he kissed her.
Marie said she couldn't believe what was happening and that she was happy with how the situation unfolded.
& # 39; We could no longer be blessed and more thankful. I can't believe this is our story, & the mother-of-one added.
