Double joy arrives

May 23, 2017 - 09:00

A 22-year-old woman Hoàng Thị Hà of the central province of Nghệ An went into labour mere hours before her wedding.

Hà and her groom Bùi Đức Dương, 24 years old, planned to marry at 10am Sunday, May 14 surrounded by their family and friends.

By 8am of the big day, the groom received an urgent call from the bride’s family, letting him know she was in labour and going to hospital.

The groom and his family rushed to the hospital instead of going to Hà’s house, meeting the bride and taking her home as, is tradition.

Their baby said hello to the world on the wedding day of his parents. People congratulated Dương’s fortune of becoming a husband and a father on the same day.

Back at the wedding reception, some of the groom’s and the bride’s family stayed at home and received guests. They all enjoyed the party without the groom and the bride, or their new little bundle of joy. — VNS
