Mom delivers baby herself on the way to hospital
Atlanta woman didn't tell fast-driving husband of the birth, so as not to cause him to crash.
Terrance Leonard was driving more than 80 mph to rush his wife, Katrena, to the hospital in time to deliver their baby. But Baby Kylie wasn’t going to wait. Sitting in the passenger's seat, Katrena Leonard delivered the baby herself, catching the newborn in the bottom of her dress.

“I thought I had time,” Katrena Leonard told WSB-TV in Atlanta. “I was just holding the dress with her inside so that [my husband] couldn’t see. I didn’t want him to wreck.”
Yes, she not only delivered her own baby but tried to keep the birth from her husband in order to avoid a distraction from the road. This woman's mommy skills are already on point.
Once they arrived at the hospital, the staff had a hard time believing the baby was already born.
"The nurses and everyone … they didn't believe the baby was there all of a sudden. They say, 'She's got the baby,'" Terrance Leonard said. "All Kylie was doing was just looking at her mom like, 'I'm here.'"
Welcome to the world, Baby Kylie.
