Imagine getting ready for school and popping to the toilet for a number two, only to realise that it’s not in fact a number two - but instead, you’re giving birth to a child you never knew you were pregnant with.
That’s exactly what happened to TikToker Alexis (@alexisqueen.x) as a 15-year-old student.
Now at the age of 19, Alexis’ crazy story has gone viral after she revealed the details of what happened in a TikTok.
She was participating in a TikTok trend where people share their wild life experiences to the harmonies to MIKA’s Grace Kelly song.

At the beginning, she explains: “My mum mentioned she had heartburn when pregnant with me, and realising I had a bit of heartburn took a pregnancy test after my school holidays.”
Alexis continued: “With the test being negative, still having regular periods and no more symptoms I went back to school for my 1st day in [year] 11 in September.”
The TikTok then describes how she was having a “perfectly ok day” at school but then having to take painkillers for her back when getting ready for back pain, but “thinking nothing of it.”
After not sleeping all night due to the back pain, she woke her parents up at 6am complaining but they said she was trying to bunk off school.
Things soon escalated.
“I went to the toilet before setting off for school and having the urge to push, I was screaming for my mum and telling her I think I’m giving birth,” she said.
She added: “My mum was shouting to me to come downstairs and looked up my skirt to check, and went into shock when she saw a head.”
Meanwhile, her dad “ran out the door for pregnancy tests.”
Since sharing her intense story, her video has received 7m views, along with nearly 930,000 likes, with thousands of people requesting a part two - which Alexis delivered.
In the follow-up video, the TikToker describes how she is in “unbearable pain” while her mum is in “total shock.”
Alexis’ aunt then look up her skirt too and confirmed she could see a head and shouted at mum to call an ambulance.
“The operator was on the phone telling my aunt that she needed to deliver the baby,” she continued. “I was screaming that I needed to push and the ambulance still hadn’t arrived so I needed to talk my aunt through everything.”
“I finally make one last push as paramedics walk through the door as a tiny baby boy makes his appearance on the living room floor.”
Turns out Alexis had a cryptic pregnancy, which is where a woman is completely unaware she is pregnant and doesn’t show any clear signs - hence the negative pregnancy tests.
