A Florida woman gave birth to a healthy 7-pound, 5-ounce girl as her husband was on the way to the hospital, according to news reports.

“I think the head is coming out,” Bridget Jackman, 31, of North Port told her husband shortly before Kasher Cecelia arrived on her own schedule, the North Port Sun reported.

Jackman told the Sun she thought she had more time because she’d been in labor for six hours with her first baby.

Kasher was born just before 4:30 a.m. Monday after a 911 dispatcher told the father, Kieron Jackman, 40, to pull over off Interstate 75 on his way to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

A veteran Brevard County Fire Rescue dispatcher kept a family calm and talked them through the birth of their son in a car near Cocoa after they pulled over on the way to a hospital.

The couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Kehren, was in the car with them and saw her baby sister being born.
