Apparently inspired by Amber Miller, a suburban Chicago woman who gave birth to her baby daughter after she completed the Chicago Marathon last weekend, late night talk show host Conan O'Brien turned to his "Conan Peanut Players" to re-enact the scene on his show Tuesday night.

"Isn't that amazing?" O'Brien said. "It's an amazing story, a heartwarming story and I wanted to share it with you. Unfortunately there were not any cameras around to record the event. There's no footage of it. And so I thought we would re-enact … I thought we would re-enact the marathon mom's amazing story."

The "re-enactment" depicts the runners and spectators alike, showing "Miller" running the race before being rushed to the hospital, "where she gave birth to a healthy baby girl."

The actual Miller, indeed, was nearly 39 weeks pregnant when she began the 26.2 mile marathon on Sunday. After consulting her doctor, she was allowed to run half the race before walking the final half.

She reportedly feeling contractions shortly after she finished the marathon with a time of 6 hours, 25 minutes. When the contractions became regular, she went to the hospital.

Her baby Jane was born at 10:29 p.m. Sunday and weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces.

Miller has reportedly completed two previous marathons while pregnant and had signed up for the most recent Chicago Marathon before she knew she was pregnant, according to ABC News.
