Proving once again, Americans will do almost anything for their fifteen minutes of fame. A nine-months-pregnant Antoria Gillon arrived at Texas Stadium with hopes of becoming the next American Idol.
However, as the time of her audition approached, she realized she was in labor. Determined not to miss her shot, Gillon sang her best while in the midst of contractions. After completing the audition and learning she will return for the next round, Gillon was taken to a local hospital, where she gave birth to a healthy son – whom she named
Simon Randy Ryan Jamil Labarron Idol McCowan. Baby Idol arrived early Tuesday morning and weighed 6 lbs. 7oz.
