Bemidji, Minn  â€”   A Minnesota mother has given birth to a baby boy while driving herself to the hospital.

According to The Bemidji Pioneer (photo) 29-year-old Amanda McBride was rushing to the hospital Wednesday when suddenly her water broke.

“And then the baby just came right out,” she said. “I was just sitting on the seat and he just slid out.”

The baby boy was born at 12:20 a.m.  He weighed 8 pounds and was 18.5 inches long.   Officials at North Country Regional Hospital say they were stunned to learn that the expectant mother was driving on her way to the hospital.  Both baby and new mother are doing fine.
