~ What the Hell Wednesday ~

Ah, a pregnant lady.  Sure, she's holding a doll and in an obnoxiously painted room, but still.  Who can't appreciate a very pregnant woman?  Most of us have been there so we have a sisterhood, you know?

Here's her story:  A performance artist who said giving birth is the "highest form of art" has delivered a baby boy — inside a New York City art galleryON PURPOSE.

The Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn said Marni Kotak gave birth to a healthy infant, weighing 9 pounds, 2 ounces, and 21 inches long.

The 36-year-old artist had set up a home-birth center at the gallery, turning the space into a brightly decorated bedroom with ocean blue walls and photo-imprinted pillows.

The gallery said in a statement that "Baby X" was born at 10:17 a.m. Tuesday. It didn't say how many people witnessed the birth or give any other detail.

The gallery said a video of the birth will be added to its upcoming exhibition.
