NOA VP of Marketing and Corporate Affairs gives birth to an eight pound baby girl ... while playing Donkey Kong Country?!

The entire staff of Planet GameCube wishes all the best to Perrin Kaplan, Nintendo of America's Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Affairs, who gave birth Sunday to a 7lb. 15oz. baby girl at Swedish Hospital in Seattle, Washington.

In true Nintendo form, Perrin used her Game Boy Advance as her focal point, playing Donkey Kong Country while going through labor.

We hear that Beth Llewellyn is next up to deliver ... there must be something in the water in Redmond!

Thanks to "bigjimoutlaw1" for the news tip!

In unrelated news, a woman in Seattle names her child "Cranky".

Sounds like a publicity stunt. Wait, she's a VP of marketing.
