In a statement issued to NME, a Glastonbury spokesperson said: “We’d like to send our congratulations to the family. We look forward to welcoming them back in future years. We’ve had babies born here that are now grown-ups. They still come every year. That’s a beautiful thing."

According to The Independent, Wesson reportedly told well-wishers that she and the baby are “fine and fabulous.”

In addition to sending Wesson into labor, Mick Jagger and company shattered Glastonbury records by drawing 100,000 concertgoers to the main Pyramid Stage on Saturday. Meanwhile, 2.5 million viewers tuned in to BBC to catch a small portion of the show.
