When selecting your bridesmaids, it's key to choose people that you can count on. 


Well, one lucky bride from Australia got more than she bargained for from her amazing bridesmaid. 



Karla Barry was her best friend's Maid of Honour recently, but was also nine months pregnant. 



The new mum woke up the morning of her friends wedding with labour pains, but instead of heading to the hospital, she kept quiet. 


Karla spent 17 hours in labour, without telling anyone, as she didn't want to steal the limelight rom her friend. 



This amazing bridesmaid walked her best friend up the aisle in the 40 degree heat, and also endured the reception and photos.



After hours of maintaining her composure through labour pains, Karla's husband insisted she go to the hospital, and so baby Xavier was born. 


The award for bridesmaid of the year gor to you, Karla Barry!
