Pink fan who went into labor at concert gives singer bizarre tribute

She’s tickled Pink.

A woman who went into labor during a Pink concert has honored the pop star through her newborn son’s name.

Angela Mercer was attending the “So What” singer’s Aug. 1 show at Boston’s Fenway Park with her sister-in-law Amy and mother Barbara when, not long after their arrival, the 31-weeks-pregnant Angela started having contractions.

She called her doctor — who advised her to go to a hospital.

“With all the traffic surrounding Fenway for the concert, Angela had trouble finding a ride to the hospital,” social media posts from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital read. 

Angela and her family decided the fastest way to get to the hospital — which was 1 mile away — was to walk, so they set out on their trepid journey.

“Uber and Lyft, we ordered one of each and they weren’t going to get there, so I decided we had to walk because the baby was breech and I knew that,” Angela told CBS station WBZ. “I was very concerned he was in distress. You don’t know what’s going on in there.”

Her husband, Ace, was still back in Albany and had been on the phone with her when she was en route for a C-section.

“She started having a contraction and was in a lot of pain and kind of dropped the phone,” the new dad told WBZ. “I heard the baby’s heartbeat in the background and the nurses saying, ‘OK there’s a heartbeat,’ and there was just a lot of commotion.” 

Angela, a 32-year-old social worker, later gave birth to her son — on her mom Barbara’s birthday, no less — in Brigham’s NICU and named her baby Aycen Hart, a tip to the “Raise Your Glass” singer’s surname from her marriage to ex-pro motocross competitor Carey Hart.

“The doctors don’t have any major concerns. It’s amazing. He was so early; a lot of things could have gone wrong. We’re in a good spot and just so happy,” Angela gushed, thanking the “exceptional team” at the hospital.

“While the family didn’t get to enjoy the concert, they say they received the greatest gift of all — a healthy baby boy,” the hospital wrote in its post, adding that baby Aycen is currently being cared for in an Albany NICU, but not because of any “major concerns.”

While Angela missed the concert — which was part of Pink’s Summer Carnival stadium tour — the artist tweeted a celebratory message to the new parents on Thursday.

“This is the sweetest!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!” the “Trustfall” singer wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The Post has reached out to Pink’s representatives for further comment.

Angela still hopes to have a chance to see the singer in the future.

“We need to reschedule!” Angela told WBZ. “Whenever her next tour is.”

Pink’s outdoor Summer Carnival continues through Oct. 9 with a stop in Phoenix, Arizona, and then she kicks off her “Trustfall” arena tour on Oct. 12 in Sacramento.
