Spotting Johnny Depp in a Burbank, California restaurant last week (begs 22SEP03) shocked a female fan so much, she went into labour.

The woman started shrieking when she spotted Depp sitting nearby, and ignored her husband's pleas to take it easy.

According to American tabloid NATIONAL ENQUIRER, Depp thought he'd be able to calm her down by saying hello, but as he walked over to his fan's table at the OSAKA restaurant, her waters broke.

Waiters and fellow diners immediately started helping the woman's husband lead his wife off to a nearby car, while Johnny quickly signed a napkin and returned to his meal, visibly shaken by the experience.
