Mike Anthony Addison was driving Rudy Napier to what was supposed to be her final check-up with all three of their children in the back seat when Jolee Lavergne Addison decided it was time for her to come into the world on Friday.
The couple’s son, Jayden, 10, had been tasked with recording a pre-birth video for his new sister as they went to the appointment – but ended up getting her birth on tape too.
And after watching the footage back later, dad Mike decided to share the clip on Facebook, where it has been viewed nearly nine million times to date.
After receiving so much attention for the unique arrival of their youngest daughter, the family started a fundraiser on Facebook to buy a minivan to be able to safely drive around their entire family.

Mike shared the video after taking a look at the recording, and described the entire ordeal as a ‘BEAUTIFUL nightmare!!’
The video, which runs just shy of four-and-a-half minutes, shows the situation escalating as Jayden remains steady on the camera.
At the start, Mike has his hand placed on Rudy’s leg in an attempt to comfort her as he drives with the other arm.
‘Mike the baby’s coming out, Mike the baby’s coming out,’ Rudy says to her husband, as he does his best to get them safely and quickly to Henderson Hospital.
‘No, she’s not,’ he says in the video, at first in denial that the newborn is on the way.

‘We’re on our way to the hospital. We love you and we’ll see you soon. We just wanna say a prayer and just pray and ask God that you’re delivered safely and healthy and we just can’t wait to put our hands on you.’
Mike then asks his older children if they have anything to say, and Jayden flips the camera around to show his face as he jokes, ‘Hurry up.’
His sisters, seated beside him in the back, are without words with tears streaming down one’s face, and the other sitting silently in the midst of the chaos.
Jayden later shared, ‘All that was going through my head was, “Record the baby.”‘
Rudy talked about the experience afterward, recalling that her husband asked her, ‘Can you hold it?’ but that was not possible.
‘I couldn’t take it any more,’ she said of the moment when she felt she had to push, ‘And that’s when her head popped out.’
In the video, Rudy grabs her daughter as Mike calls out, ‘Hold her up, hold her up, oh, my God, hold her up.’
In a serene and calm voice, Rudy says, ‘I got her,’ and pulls Jolee to her chest as she waits for her to cry.
Mike hears his wife’s worry that the baby hasn’t made a noise yet, and soothes her by letting her know Jolee’s eyes are open and she’s conscious.
In tears, Rudy then says, ‘We got a baby, she’s so pretty,‘ while making sure to include her children in the back in the experience, calling out to each of them by name.
‘She’s here, baby,’ Mike says, as he continues to drive.

After the experience, he expressed his gratitude to the hospital that took care of his wife and child.
‘I just want to take the time to thank the ENTIRE Henderson Hospital staff for all the great immediate help and hospitality they gave us from start to finish!!!!’ he wrote on Facebook late on Saturday night.
‘They treated us like ROYALTY there from the minute I sped up to the front door running in like a maniac screaming for help until they were wheeling Rudy and Jolee down to me earlier today so we could finally go home.’
