The woman told The Lott officials she was shocked to receive a phone call Tuesday informing her that she had won a jackpot totaling $151,183.01.

The winner said the call wasn't her first happy surprise of the day.

"You know, I have a lot of reasons to be celebrating today," she said. "I have actually been walking around all day in shock already. I just found out I am going to have another grandchild!"

"It was a huge shock and now this is a huge shock! What an incredible day," she said.

The woman said she will discuss what to do with the money with her husband.

"We will pop a bottle of champagne, get over the shock of this and then make some plans for our prize," she said.
