A North Carolina woman gave birth in the front seat of her car on the way to the hospital.
The Gaston Gazette reports Saturday that Gricel Mateo of Lincolnton gave birth about two hours after contractions woke her early Thursday.
The mother of a 15-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter says she was in no rush to get to the hospital, until it was too late.
Mateo says her boyfriend, Antonio Paulino, was parked at a stop sign and dialing 911 when her third child was born.
They then got a police escort to the hospital.
Jaydie Paulino was 5 pounds 12 ounces, and 20 1/2 inches long. The mother and daughter are doing well.
Jaydie was born four days before her expected due date.
