You won’t break Beyoncé’s soul, but she may break your water.

At least that’s the case for actress Sarah Francis Jones, who was nine months pregnant when she attended Queen Bey’s show Monday with her partner, actor Marcel Spears.

Beyoncé had just begun to perform Cuff It at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California when Jones went into labor. It also just so happened to be Beyoncé’s birthday.

“I think it was right after the mute challenge,” Jones told KTLA. “Everybody went mute. L.A. did very well … and then I started having contractions.”

Hours after going into labor, Jones and Spears welcomed their baby girl, Nola, who wasn’t expected to make her arrival for at least a few more days.

The Honey actress said initially she thought she was having false labor pains. Little did she know, the baby was on her way to the world.

“I said ‘Something’s happening,’” she said. “Usually I like to dance at the concert and I was like ‘OK, I need to sit down for a second.”

All the while, Spears did his best to ensure Jones didn’t lose her breath by keeping Jones calm.

“I also thought it was Braxton Hicks and she was like ‘I’m feeling something’ and I said ‘No, no no, it’s early it’ll pass, we’re okay,’” he said, adding that he started to time the contractions and noticed they were approximately 25 minutes apart.

“As the concert went on we were like ‘I don’t know about this.’ By the time we got to the car into the parking lot it was full-on intense,” he explained. 

He continued: “The biggest contractions happened during Virgo’s Groove.”

It’s also worth noting that the latest member of the Beyhive is a Virgo, just like the Renaissance star. She arrived one day after Beyoncé’s birthday on Sept. 5.

The couple further added that they recorded the entire experience because they knew this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“If we didn’t record it, I don’t think anybody would believe it,” Spears said. “It’s just one of those things that it’s so convenient you’re like ‘Nah that’s not happening,’ but the baby definitely pulled through.”
