Justin Bieber Gig Sends Orthodox Woman Into Labor

(JTA) — You’d better Beliebe it: A haredi Orthodox woman went into labor after just one song at a Justin Bieber concert in Tel Aviv.

Then again, Reut Ziskind, 23, from the predominantly ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak, told Ynet she was three weeks overdue by the time she attended the concert on Wednesday.

“I never dreamed I’d actually give birth during his performance,” she said.

Ziskind delivered a healthy baby girl and named her Hadar.

“If I would have had a boy, I would have called him Justin,” she said.

Ziskin also denied it was unusual for a haredi woman to attend a pop concert.

“I’m a modern ultra-Orthodox woman,” she told Ynet. “You would be surprised, there are a lot of ultra-Orthodox women who love Justin Bieber.”

Wednesday’s show, which attracted some 50,000 fans, was Bieber’s second performance in Israel; the first was in 2011.

The Jerusalem Post reported that this time he brought an entourage of 115 — plus a personal Jacuzzi.
