Denise Jones may just be the biggest Pink (sometimes stylized as P!nk) fan on the planet. Not only did she attend Pink’s recent concert in Liverpool while very, very pregnant, she actually gave birth during the show. In honor of her daughter’s birth story, Denise named her newborn Dolly Pink after the singer.
According to a recent Billboard story, paramedics John Matthews and Dani Berg arrived at the scene at Anfield Stadium to help bring Dolly Pink into the world. Thanks to their help, mother and daughter are safe and healthy.

Denise allegedly went into labor just when the show started, with P!nk taking the stage to sing her hit song, “Let’s Get the Party Started.” Denise got the party started, alright. She was sitting in the Main Stand when she first felt contractions, while Matthews and Berg were on the other side of the stadium. The pair somehow figured out a way to make it across the stadium and through thousands of dancing fans.
Dr. Matthews, a consultant at Whiston hospital’s emergency department told Liverpool Echo, “We took the decision to move her as quickly as possible to the First Aid Room underneath the Kop stand. We continued to assess her and established she was going to have to deliver the baby in the stadium as there was not enough time to get her to hospital.”
The whole thing took less than five minutes. Denise ultimately had the baby all naturally since there was no time or access to pain relief.
After the birth, Denise shared, “The plan was to call her Dolly Louise but since she was born in the concert we’ve changed it to Dolly Pink.”
Pink shared a headline about the story to her Instagram page, saying “Dolly Pink wanted to get the party started.”
She did indeed, Pink. She did indeed!
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
