Once in the audition room, the performer "gave it my all through the contractions. They were back to back and getting harder and harder but I was more than willing to have my baby right there," Gillon said. "I wasn't leaving without my golden ticket to the next round."
A judge offered a chair to Gillon during Monday's audition. When the ambulance arrived, Gillon refused to leave, saying she wasn't finished.
Upon hearing she was still in contention, she was taken to a nearby hospital, where she had a boy, Jamil Labarron Idol McCowan. Gillon's second child arrived early Tuesday, weighing six pounds, seven ounces.
