Originally, they had intended to marry in Cyprus in September, but their plans changed when they discovered Amy’s pregnancy.

Wanting to tie the knot before Mia’s arrival, they arranged for their wedding to take place on Saturday, May 20.

However, little Mia had her own agenda, as Amy began experiencing contractions while making final preparations for the big day.

To delay the labor, the hospital admitted Amy, but Mia had other plans.

She was born on May 2, weighing just 1lb 12oz, and being only 24 weeks premature.

Despite her challenging start, Mia has been making progress and gaining weight.

Her parents received a heartwarming surprise when the neonatal staff managed to live-stream their daughter’s presence at their wedding, dressing her as a flower girl.

Nurses at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, who wanted to ensure Mia June Nixon did not miss out on her parents’ special day, organized the live stream.

The wedding took place at The Sporting Lodge, according to reports from TeessideLive.

Alex, the joyful groom residing in Coulby Newham, shared their decision-making process: they had considered canceling the wedding due to the circumstances but ultimately decided to proceed, having already lost their deposits from canceling the Cyprus wedding.

On the day of the wedding, the hospital pleasantly surprised the couple with the live stream featuring Mia.

Dressed in a little outfit, complete with a headband and flowers, Mia’s appearance moved everyone to tears, including the guests and the nurses attending to her.

Later, when Alex and Amy visited the hospital to see their daughter, the nurses had decorated Mia’s crib and arranged cupcakes and sparkling wine for a small celebration.

He mentioned that the nurses’ efforts in organizing the live stream and celebrations meant the world to them, and they could never thank them enough.

Amy, who works in construction, had polycystic ovaries and had been informed by doctors that her chances of becoming pregnant were very low.

Thus, the pregnancy came as a significant surprise to the couple.

Alex described Mia as a spirited little girl, often removing her tubes and attempting to push up with her tiny arms.

Inspired by their journey, the Nixons are now dedicated to raising awareness about premature births and raising funds for the neonatal unit at The James Cook University Hospital and the charity Bliss.
