Fred Again partied ‘till dawn after his nuts Glastonbury set, having no idea that he became an uncle in the midst of it all.
Uncle Fred shared the tale of the “maddest 12 hours” he’s ever experienced in an Instagram post. It started at 8 PM with his friends and family - including his heavily pregnant sister-in-law - rocking up to the stage he was performing at. It ended with him holding a newborn baby.
At 10 PM, Fred wraps up his set which included many lit, crazy, movie moments - from playing an unreleased song to an old geezer going off his head in the mosh. At midnight he has a “lovely time” watching his good mate Four Tet perform.
One hour later, Fred’s sister-in-law goes into labour, but Fred doesn’t know as his brother received the text and they’d been separated while getting their festie on, as you do.
“He’d lost us in the crowd, and no one had reception,” Fred said of his brother. “So he just left for the taxi rank without anyone knowing the text he’d just received.”
At 3 AM Fred is still “SESHING LIKE NOTHINGS HAPPENING” - he “went on a Ferris wheel and everything” - still being none the wiser that his brother is about to become a father.
Fred and his gang wrap up their sesh at around 6 AM, the baby was born just five minutes earlier. Finally, at 7 AM his phone connects to the outside world and he finds out the big news, hugging, crying and laughing with a couple of his closest.
At 8 AM, just 10 hours after his Glastonbury set wrapped up, Fred’s mum shows him a photo of the widdle baby.
Just one day later Fred held the newborn baby in his arms. Adorable.
Imagine holding a one-day-old human in your arms just after bending through 'til dawn. Not many could do that safely, but Fred's wholesomeness superpower conquers all.
