A passenger has given birth aboard a plane flying to Armenia and named her daughter after one of the flight attendants who helped with the delivery.

The birth of the healthy baby occurred Saturday, two hours before the Armavia airline flight landed in Yerevan, Armenia's capital, after a long flight from Siberia.

Flight attendant Asmik Gevondyan said she noticed that 31-year-old passenger Armina Babayan appeared to be in labor and organized the delivery.

"All of our crew helped to deliver the baby," Gevondyan told The Associated Press.

Babayan, who had claimed to be six-and-a-half-months pregnant during check-in, named her first child Asmik, local television reported.

    The article says she "claimed" she was six and a half months into the pregnancy. It's generally considered high risk for a pregnant woman past 7months to fly, so I presume she might have not shared the whole truth.

    I think she laired about 6 1/2 mths if had the bay now. Other wise maybe it wouldnt have survived being BORN SO EARLY.

    I believe the delivery was triggered by emotions of flight which is not good for expecting mother which result on premature birth, she give birth at 6 1/2 months which is not normal rather at the right time of 9 months.
