The woman who gave birth during Metallica’s concert in Brazil last weekend got another surprise this week. 

Tattoo artist Joice M. Figueiró received a congratulatory phone call from Metallica frontman James Hetfield on Tuesday.  Joice posted a video clip from the call and told her Instagram followers that it lasted seven minutes and that she recorded all of it. “I have no more words,” she added.

Joice was 39 weeks pregnant when she attended the show Saturday night and started having contractions when Metallica took the stage. Her water broke on the way to the event’s outpatient clinic and there was no time to take her to the maternity hospital. 

The band was playing “Enter Sandman” at the moment of birth.
