FAIR LAWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A New Jersey mom had a special delivery early Monday morning — a baby who just couldn’t wait.

Wagner and her husband were heading to the hospital, but they only made it as far as the foyer of their home.

“I was like, I can’t get in the car, and I said, ‘The baby’s coming.’ And my husband was like, ‘No, he’s not. Get in the car.’ And I was like, ‘No, the baby’s coming.’ And sure enough, like, a couple of pushes, and he was here,” Wagner said.

By the time police got here, the baby boy had already entered the world.

“Dad said mom’s inside. Came inside, mom’s holding her baby already,” Fair Lawn Police Officer Luke Hintzen said.

The team of Fair Lawn police officers and paramedics got Wagner and her newborn to Englewood Health for a check-up.

Both are doing just fine.
