Dionysus' mother was a mortal. Mortals couldn't handle the full godliness of someone like Zeus, and Dionysus' mortal mother couldn't stop begging to see Zeus in his full godliness. Finally, Zeus couldn't take the begging, and he let her see himself for the real him, and she burst into flames. Once Zeus realized that Dionysus was in the womb of his mortal mother, not fully grown, Zeus had Hermes come and rescue Dionysus, and Zeus created a hole in his thigh, where Dionysus could mature into a real baby, instead of a fetus. Once Dionysus was a fully grown baby, Zeus opened up that hole, and out came Dionysus.
