She was supposed to deliver their baby inside the hospital, but it didn’t work out that way.
Kristin Dickerson of Rosenberg, Texas was nearly two weeks overdue when her water broke in the early hours of June 28. Husband Troy was rushing his wife to the Texas Medical Center, but still decided to film the happy event with his GoPro camera.
“I can’t make it! I can’t make it,” Kristin says between screams, “We need to stop.” But the husband drove on, trying to calm his wife, assuring her that he would deliver the baby if necessary.
When they finally arrive Kristin steps out of the vehicle but then finds herself unable to move and she delivers the baby there and then. Their son, named Truett, was born at 2:05 a.m. just as a team of nearly 10 nurses had rushed to assist them.

‘She had gotten out of the car and she had just froze, like stood there. And me and the valet guy were like, “Sit down! Sit down in the wheelchair!'” Troy told Click2Houston.
Kristin ended up giving birth right outside the car, standing next to the curb.
‘I said, “On the next contraction, push.” And on the next contraction, she pushed and he came flying out,’ said Troy.
Kristin can be heard screaming at her husband to catch the baby as she delivers him into the world.
