Sarah Sharples from Northumberland was a new, expectant mother and at 20 weeks, when doctors confirmed that she was having a baby girl, she started shopping for clothing, toys and furniture in preparation. Sarah spent over $4600 on baby essentials for a girl and even chose the name, Lily-Mae.
So you can just imagine her shock when she actually gave birth to a baby boy!
