Baby Deliveries Double This Month In Chicago Following Cubs 2016 World Series Win

A lot of couples got frisky after the final game.

Lots of home runs on the night of November 2, 2016 resulted in lots of pregnancies for Chicago Cubs fans after their beloved team won the World Series. 

As a result of all that lovin' OB-GYN Dr. Melissa Dennis has been delivering babies overtime at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago all month. "Yes, deliveries doubled, from about four or five births a day to now about nine a day," a spokerperson for the hospital tells Personal Space


Chris and Jenna Grooms, conceived their daughter, Rose, during the World Series.

Jenna tells Personal Space "The city was on fire after that game 7 win - the energy was contagious! I don't think anyone in the city was sleeping much that night. We always knew our family would be life long Cubs fans, but having our daughter's birth incorporated with this historic win is truly a home run for us."

Dr. Dennis also explained the baby boom to us, saying:

"Over the last several weeks, it has been very busy in our department. The number of births nearly

doubled in the last few weeks, from an average of five births per day to nine. While there has been an increase in the number of babies delivered at the hospital, it's tough to definitively tie it back to the World Series win last fall...It is hard to believe it's already been nine months since the Cub win, but it's been fun to relive that amazing moment in history and celebrate these new babies and their Cubs-loving families.

With the hospital just a hop and a skip away from Wrigley Field and as a Cubs fan myself, I'm used to seeing the Cubs spirit everywhere I go, but having these families here to celebrate their 'little sluggers' in such a special way is absolutely unforgettable." 

Mazel to all the families with the new little baseball fans!
