Pink's song Get the Party Started has inspired many a party atmosphere, and one impatient baby decided it was her catalyst to start her life outside the womb.

A baby girl - who was then named 'Dolly Pink' as a tribute to the singer - was safely delivered at Liverpool's Anfield stadium during the opening song, after mum Denise Jones went into labour three weeks ahead of her due date.

Pink kicked off the UK leg of her Beautiful Trauma tour in Liverpool on Tuesday, with baby Dolly Pink insisting on a series of firsts - first baby born at a Pink concert, in the first minutes of the first song of the first date of the tour. Did you get all that?

She is also the first baby to be born at Anfield, the legendary home of the Liverpool Football Club, according to an ITV news reporter, who confirmed it with Anfield.

Ms Jones niece, Chloe Dryhurst, said her aunt had experienced "pressure pains" through the week but hadn't paid much attention to them.

"Before she was going she was fine, she got dressed all nice, everything was fine," she told told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"But she said once she was in there and the music started that's when she knew and it was too late then."

Ms Dryhurst tweeted pictures of the mum and baby, assuring people they are, "... doing amazing", and thanking medical staff.

A LFC crowd doctor - Dani - who helped to deliver Dolly said in a tweet, "Mum did all the hard work, we just had to catch."

Pink acknowledged the birth on her Instagram account with the caption, "Dolly PInk wanted to get the party started".
