ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) - A woman who is eight months pregnant battled a 226-pound swordfish while fishing in the Gulf of Mexico before finally reeling in the giant fish.

Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/1egmCDt) that Hannah Kelly caught the swordfish Wednesday off the Alabama coast, near Orange Beach. She was fishing on her husband Bobby Kelly's charter fishing boat, the Miss Brianna, during a tournament for local charter boat captains at Zeke's Landing Marina.

Bobby Kelly said the fish dragged the boat for more than two miles. Hannah Kelley said the first 30 minutes fighting the fish was relatively easy, but then it was "a very tough relationship" for the next two hours.

Bobby Kelly said later that he feared that his pregnant wife's water would break as she fought to catch the fish.
