The last thing you want when you’re pregnant is for your OB-GYN to abandon you the day before they’re due, but that’s precisely what happened to actress Amy Poehler. In her book, she explained the day before her due date, she was rehearsing for SNL and took a break to confirm her appointment with her OB-GYN.

She wrote: “I hung up the phone and told Jon [Hamm] and the hair and makeup people that my doctor had just DIED. And I was DUE TOMORROW.” Luckily, another trustworthy doctor stepped in to perform her C-section, and Poehler delivered a healthy baby boy.
