The actual delivery starts at 5:00.

It’s child birth via GoPro.

A Texas man captured every detail of his son’s birth, from his speedy drive to the hospital to his wife’s delivery outside the hospital doors, on a GoPro camera.

As they pulled up to the Houston hospital, Kristin Dickerson knew her baby wasn’t going to wait.

Kristin is a child birth educator, which may explain why she was OK with the camera. She told the paper, she’ll let her students know that what happened to her was extremely rare.

“His head is out. I’m not kidding,” she screamed with the camera recording. “Oh God. Oh God.”

“Sit down. Sit down,” her husband, Troy, urged.

“I can’t sit down,” Kristin said.

“You have to sit down. You have to sit down so I can catch him,” Troy told her.

“Get a doctor down here now,” Troy called out.

It was too late. Before any medical personnel could arrive, their son was born.

“I got him. I got him. I got him. He’s perfect,” Troy called out after catching their son.

Medical personnel arrived shortly after, finished the delivery process and determined the baby was in good health.

“Did that really just happen?” Kristin said while holding the baby in the elevator of the hospital.

“I didn’t believe you,” Troy said.

“I felt the head. I told you,” Kristin laughed.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the couple named their son Truett. He is the third child — all boys — for the couple.
