The Glastonbury music festival has been the site of many a wild time but none so wild, we believe, as the birth of a child.

Heidi Wesson was not expected to give birth until two weeks after the Glastonbury Festival, but it appears that her baby girl had other ideas.

Wesson, 33, reportedly went into labour while watching the Rolling Stones perform their set, the first song of which was Jumpin' Jack Flash.

Wesson had her baby at the medical centre on-site at the music festival.

"We'd like to send our congratulations to the family," a Glastonbury representative said in a statement.

"We look forward to welcoming them back in future years. We've had babies born here that are now grown-ups. They still come every year. That's a beautiful thing."

The Guardian reports that Wesson has named her daughter Ivy after the Ivy Mead medical centre at the festival where the baby was born.
