A Montgomery County woman gave birth to a baby along Interstate 270, with the help of her husband.
Ann and John Noland were on their way to a hospital Friday around 5 a.m. when she started feeling contractions.
"I said, John I think it's time!" Ann recalled. "And it was definitely time. [We thought] we'd make it just in time..."
Her husband immediately pulled over on the highway near Middlebrook Road in Germantown, walked around the car, moved his wife's seat back and delivered Atticus, the couple's third child.
"I was very nervous," John said. "I'm relieved and overjoyed."
"I delivered the baby and then called you," John laughed after giving the 911 dispatcher their location.
The Nolands were later transported to an area hospital, where Ann and baby Atticus -- a healthy 9 pound, 7 ounce baby boy -- are doing fine.
"I'm happy -- overwhelmed but that's to be expected when things don't go as planned!" Ann said.
