Francis Jones: Contractions At Beyoncé’s Concert?

While attending the birthday concert of the one and only Beyoncé at the SoFi Stadium, actress Sarah Jones experienced contractions shortly “after the mute challenge. Everybody went mute. L.A. did very well… and then I started having contractions,” as she recalled to KTLA on the 5th. Being a few days away from her due date, she initially thought the contractions were just Braxton Hicks (a common phenomenon among pregnant women) but eventually realized she was in labor and was accompanied to the hospital mid-concert by her partner Marcel Spears.

“I said, ‘Something’s happening,'” the actress said. “Usually, I like to dance at the concert, and I was like, ‘OK, I need to sit down for a second.'” Apparently, even though the star was in pain, the pair stayed put at the show for some time while Spears timed Francis’ contractions. “By the time we got to the car in the parking lot it was full on intense,” added Spears, “and I was just like, ‘Okay it’s happening now this is happening right now.'” Nola’s 5th September birthday already hints at her being “that girl,” as a Virgo baby, much like Beyonce. Even more proof of her special qualities is her vibing since in the womb, with her biggest contractions happening during Beyonce’s song Virgo’s Groove
