05:36 PM ET 05.12 | There are diehard Chicago Blackhawks fans and then there's Donna Lebano who beats an overweight guy without a shirt and with his body painted in Hawks colors. A very pregnant Lebano was live in attendance at the Chicago Blackhawks Game 5 series clinching win over the Minnesota Wild inside the United Center earlier last week, but rather than go to the hospital to usher her newborn baby into the world, she held her son in so she could see the end of the game. The Chicago Blackhawks haven't been to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs since they brought the Cup home in 2010. So Lebano had to weigh her priorities at that moment in time: give birth to a son that was coming anyway or be a part of a Blackhawks celebration. Lebano chose to hold Owen in, which means she got to celebrate two things in one night, and little Owen Micheal has perhaps the most epic birth story that has ever been told and one helluva Mother's Day tale.

Considering my second kid was born about 5 min. after they wheeled my wife in, screw that.

Absurd.

We aren't talking about the Chicago Cubs FFS. Her team won it all 3 years ago, and she pulls this nonsense? Putting undue stress n herself and her unborn baby over a first round playoff game? Not exactly mother of the year...

I hope Crawford, Hossa, Kane and Toews go into labor just before the Series start. :-)

This will be interesting to say the least....... I think that women is a tad crazy, and wouldn't want to be around her at a game with the runs! Sometimes you just can't hold it in anymore! :)

As a mother of 2, I will go on record as saying that this woman is nuts.

Lucky for her she didn't have a super-quick labor like I did with my second one...the kid would've been born in her seat at the United Center!
