In a video, that has gone viral, a man from Houston films his wife giving birth to their 10-pound (4.5-kilogram) baby son next to him as he drives through traffic in an unsuccessful effort to reach a birthing center in time.

Jonathan and Lesia Pettijohn were stuck in traffic for more than an hour this week when her water broke, forcing her to self-deliver their newborn son, Josiah.

Jonathan Pettijohn told KHOU-TV in Houston that they didn’t pull over because there was no apparent danger to his wife or the baby. The roughly four-minute video shows him calmly instructing his wife while she screams, “It’s coming out! It’s coming out!”

After the birth, he says, “We did it! High-five, babe!” Birthing center staffers were surprised to find Josiah already in hand when the couple arrived.
