SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -
A local family got the surprise of a lifetime and quite a story to tell when their new baby girl entered the world before her parents could get to the hospital Friday.
The family was on the road rushing to the hospital when they were forced to take a detour.
It sounds like something straight out of a movie, but it was an all too real moment for LaDawn Hill. She was in labor, and those little feet were moving fast.
"I was having a contraction, had to use the bathroom and I was ready to push," Hill said. "So all three of the those combined, I was like, 'OK, we have to go right now.'"
The Hills only live about 10 minutes from the hospital. They thought they had enough time to pick up her mother and make it to the hospital in plenty of time, but their little bundle of joy had other plans.
"At that point she said, 'The baby is about to come,' and I knew it was intense," said Nicholas Hill, the dad of the newborn. "So I jumped out the car. The front seat happens to be ready, thank the Lord. I said, 'Mom, you got to go fast."
It apparently wasn't fast enough.
"I saw her head crowning," Nicholas Hill said. "She gave out one big push, and the baby came, and I just put my hands down, like any baby show, I pat her and she cried."
The car the Hills went to the hospital in was small, and there was not a lot of room to sit in, let alone give birth. But the Hills said that is where little Grace made her debut.
"It's a good dad moment, like, 'Girl I delivered you,'" Nicholas Hill said.
He used the lace from his shoe to tie the umbilical cord while waiting for the paramedics to arrive and finish their trip to the hospital. The Hills said they will be talking about this for years.
Little Grace wasn't due until May 8. She joins her big sister Angel, the couple's 7-year-old daughter.
