A couple in Texas recently welcomed a baby together with no advanced warning whatsoever — and handled it extremely well.
The mother, Cindy, had zero idea she was pregnant.
Over Mother’s Day weekend, the woman started to have cramps, she revealed to Houston news station ABC13.
“So I got in the bathtub, as I normally would, and then, not even an hour later, [my baby] was here,” she explained.
“I never felt like I had to push, but at a certain point, I felt like my body was pushing, and then he came very quickly after that.”
Cindy was excited to welcome a 5-pound boy who she and her boyfriend, Chris, named Jaxson.
“We don’t have any ultrasounds, we don’t have heartbeats, no pregnancy photos,” the new father said. “There was no sign, there was no kicking. She gained 10 pounds [throughout] the whole entire pregnancy. She had her woman time show up every month.”
Shortly after giving birth in the bathtub, Cindy called 911 and went to the hospital.
Chris was reportedly visiting family at the time and didn’t believe it when she first told him.
“She ended up FaceTiming me with the doctors, and then that’s when it kind of just set in that, ‘Hey, she wasn’t making this up at all,'” he revealed to to ABC13.
And since Jaxson first arrived, the new (and surprised) parents have created a baby registry for their “perfect” and “healthy” miracle.
“We’ve just been getting packages after packages after packages,” Chris shared with ABC13.
And while the couple say their friends have been in disbelief when they share the news, everyone seems to adore the new addition.
