Thrill Kill Jill of the Lucky Daredevil Thrillshow - The world's first pregnant sword swallower

Thrill Kill Jill of the Lucky Daredevil Thrillshow became the world’s first pregnant sword swallower in 2011. During her pregnancy Jill and her husband Tyler Fyre continued to perform. She swallowed swords, danced with snakes, and played human target for Tyler’s knife-throwing act.

Though he isn’t dodging the tips of swords anymore, little Hank Lightning continues to be a part of the family business.

    And Jill is still swallowing swords with baby number three on the way! You can see her do it in Baltimore on February 22nd for World Sword Swallower’s Day.

    This is fun! Thanks! Actually, I got pregnant and became the World’s First Pregnant Sword Swallower in 2010 but I had the baby, Hank Lightning, on the 4th of July 2011 🙂
