The baby girl born on the Atlantic outpost of Fernando de Noronha on Saturday came as a surprise to everyone -- including the parents.
"The mother, who does not want to be identified, went into labor at home," the island's administration said in a statement carried by O Globo newspaper. "The family says it wasn't aware of the pregnancy."
Tiny Fernando de Noronha -- an archipelago famous for its wildlife preserve and with a population of just over 3,000 -- doesn't authorize births because there's no maternity ward, O Globo reported.
Expectant mothers are told to travel to the mainland, where the nearest big city is Natal, 227 miles (365 km) across the ocean.
"On Friday night I had pains and when I went to the bathroom I saw something coming down between my legs. That's when the child's father came and picked it up. It was a baby, a girl. I was dumbstruck."
