Baby Born In Vauxhall Zafira Is Named After The Car


A baby born in the back of a car on the way to hospital has been named after the vehicle, to mark the circumstances of her birth.

Corin Stokes has named her new baby daughter Lyla May Zafira Stokes, after the Vauxhall Zafira she gave birth in on the way to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, according to the Royston Crow.

She told the paper: “My husband just kept going because he thought we had a bit of time left.

“It was a bit of a shock for him when I leaned forward holding a baby.

“I wasn’t really scared, it just happened and the adrenaline took over.”

She told the BBC: “We’d already decided on May, and my husband wanted to add Zafira after what happened. It’ll certainly be a good story to tell her when she’s older.
