At 10 pounds, it's nice the baby came quickly.

A Houston man filmed his wife giving birth to their new son as they were on their way to a birthing center. They obviously did not make it there on time, but the baby and mom are both healthy and doing well. Jonathan and Lesia Pettijohn were stuck in traffic for more than an hour when her water broke, and apparently their new son, Josiah, doesn't like to be kept waiting.

Filming the miracle of childbirth isn't uncommon, but filming it while driving certainly is. Lesia is an incredibly strong and fearless champion for self-delivering a baby that large in a space that small. Let's hope they activated Google AdSense for their YouTube channel, because the video has garnered over 2.5 million views.


That would be a nice start to a college fund or trust for young Josiah, and much more helpful than anything else the husband did during the video.
