HENDERSON, Nev. — Michael Addison called it a “beautiful nightmare.”
A viral video posted Friday captured the moment a Nevada woman gave birth in the family car as Addison frantically tried to get to the hospital, KVUU reported.
The video, posted on May 24, shows Addison and his wife, Rudia Napier, en route to a Henderson hospital, the television station reported. The couple’s three children were in the car, and Napier’s son, Jayden, was filming as she was going through labor in the passenger seat.
Addison was trying to get to the emergency room and was driving with one hand while holding his wife with the other, but the baby was impatient.
"He's like, 'Can you hold it?' And I was like, 'No!' So I just pushed and I pushed. I couldn't take it anymore and that's when her head popped out," Napier told KVUU.
Jolee Lavergne Addison had arrived. Mother and child were whisked away by medical personnel when the family arrived at the hospital, and both are doing well, the television station reported.
“Hopefully the video didn’t offend anyone,” Addison wrote on Facebook. “To be completely honest, I only posted it because I thought the commentary was hilarious and my son recorded such a PG-13 angle I was like, ‘Oh wow, I don’t even have to edit anything.’
“I’ve done a lot of ‘things’ in the front seat of my vehicles,” Addison wrote on Facebook. “But delivering a baby while driving and with three crying kids in the back seat?”
He did well. And so did Mom.
