LAWRENCEBURG, Ky (LEX 18) A Lawrenceburg couple has a wild birth story to tell their newborn son when he grows up.
Bobby and Cecilya Goin’s son, William, was due on August 21, but Cecilya started having contractions at their home in Lawrenceburg on Sunday morning. The couple and their four-year-old daughter headed to Baptist Health in Lexington.
"We got to Blue Grass Airport, and my water broke and it just broke all the sudden out of nowhere. And I knew at that point we weren’t going to make it to the hospital," said Cecilya.
She said she had no choice but to push, while Bobby pulled over on Versailles Road.
"I told her, cause she’s a nurse, I’m like, ‘you’re the one with medical training. I don’t know how to do this, I can’t do this! A doctor is going to have to do this!’" Bobby told LEX 18.
After a moment of panic, William made his unconventional way into the world.
"My husband just jumped and just knew. He stopped, and got his shirt off and warmed him up and made him cry. He knew what to do," said Cecilya.
They rushed to the hospital.
"I ran in the ER and told em that she had just had our baby in the car. And there was about 8 people that came running out," said Bobby.
William’s umbilical cord was cut in the parking lot of the hospital, and the baby’s story into this world became the talk of the hospital.
"I didn’t know you could have a baby that quick!" Cecilya said.
The couple says that now, they’ll have to keep the car William was born in for forever.
