New father captures son’s birth on the way to the hospital

This baby was waiting for nothing—not even making it into the hospital.

When a baby is ready to enter the world, nothing can stop him—not even even the best laid plans of his parents.

Kristin Dickerson was almost two weeks overdue when she went into labor, and her husband Troy turned on the GoPro camera in the car to record the ride to the hospital, something he did with their other two sons. But unlike the other births, when this baby was finally ready to come, he was coming fast—even before his parents arrived at the hospital.

The car ride and birth (which is censored) is filled with the sort of tension other parents may remember all too well, and even when you can’t see what’s happening, the audio is enough to make your heart race. 

Baby Truett made his entrance on the curb of the hospital, but the doctors were more than prepared to handle it. This kid knows how to make an entrance.
