First pic of nun who gave birth and claimed she didn’t know she was pregnant


Circled is the Salvadorean nun who said she had no
idea she was pregnant when she gave birth to a baby
boy last week
33 year old Roxana Rodriguez, a nun with the order of
the Little Disciples of Jesus, initially claimed she
thought her labour pains were ‘stomach cramps’ when
an ambulance rushed her to the hospital.
Her picture was published this weekend in the Italian
daily newspaper, Corriere Della Sera. The new mum
reportedly told her social worker:
‘I am so happy. I feel more of a mother than a
nun, I think that’s obvious. I decided to call him
Francis in honour of our wonderful south American
Pope. I do not feel of guilt. I will be keeping him
and bringing him up. He is a gift from God. I am
little worried about all the publicity, not only in
Italy but in El Salvador and all over the world.
Everyone is talking about this and I don’t think I
will be able to return to my home country”
Sister Roxana took her vows and became a nun in the
order last September and has since written an apology
letter to the Church and her Mother Superior. She
revealed that the father of her child is a man from her
native El Salvador but has not named him. Continue…
A priest close to the new mum told the Italian magazine:
‘It all happened last spring, around March or April
time when she was back in El Salvador to get her
passport renewed. She has not said who the father
is but I understand he is an, shall we say, old
flame of hers from when she was younger. At
some stage I expect she will tell the father that he
has a son and they will be reunited but I don’t
know when that will be.’
