SAN ANTONIO, Tx. (CNN) – Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin already had a "Little Nugget" onesie picked out for her before she arrived in the world.

So it was only fitting that mom Falon gave birth to her in the restroom of a San Antonio Chick-fil-A.

"Her birth certificate reads ‘Born in Chick-Fil-A’ and (t)he hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician," proud dad Robert wrote in a Facebook post.

In celebration of her birth on Tuesday, the newborn will get free food for life at her parents’ favorite fast-food joint and a guaranteed job when she turns 14, CNN affiliate KSAT reported.

    The story of her arrival started Tuesday evening when her parents loaded up their car and set out for the hospital, according to Robert Griffin’s post.

    They stopped outside the restaurant to drop off their two other daughters with a friend. But his wife, whom he calls Maggie, went into "active labor" and needed to use the restroom, according to the father’s post. The restaurant was closed, but the manager let her inside.

    Griffin wrote that he left the girls with the friend and returned to check on his wife.

    "She’s in the restroom," the manager told him. "She’s screaming."

    In a tiny restroom stall at the Chick-fil-A, with his wife straddling the toilet, Gracelyn’s head started to emerge.

    "Sweetie," he said, "we are gonna have to do this right here, right now."
