VIDEO: Woman in Houston gives birth in car

HOUSTON -- A video on YouTube shows a woman in Houston giving birth to a 10-pound baby in the front seat of a car on Beltway 8. A warning -- some may find the video difficult to watch.

The video shows the entire birth, through birthing pains to the water breaking and the mother delivering the baby herself in the passenger seat as a man, presumably the father, drives down the highway.

According to the video posted on YouTube, the birth in the car happened while she was on her way on Beltway to the Bay Area Birthing Center.

After the baby is delivered, the man's voice can be heard. He says, "Spank him. He's breathing, if he's crying, he's breathing, but hold him upside down, babe. Hold him upside down and pat him on the booty."

The mother says, "Oh my gosh."

The man says, "We did it. High-five."

She gives him the high-five and then says, "He came out right in the car! Oh my god. You're beautiful! Oh my goodness! What do I do?"

The man replies, "So I wonder if we still have to pay for using birth center?"

The video, published yesterday, has already been viewed more than 2,100 times.

This is the couple's third child.
