And she even went on to call herself a self-proclaimed "witch" and has been able to communicate with the unborn baby.

"I have felt that baby. That baby's coming early. I've told her.

"I'm a witch, I sense these things and I said, 'You've got to be careful. I reckon it's going to come two or three weeks early'," she added.
