Baby Born In McDonald's Makes Us Thankful for McCop

Every pregnant mom has one irrational fear throughout her pregnancy: the fear that her water will break somewhere awkward. And when it comes to awkward, it does not get much worse than a 24-year-old cop at McDonalds delivering your child.

Yet that is exactly what happened to one mom in Newark, New Jersey. Did McDonald's induce her labor (are they good for something??) or did she merely just have some bad luck? Officer James Kniepp delivered the baby boy Wednesday afternoon in the bathroom. He had been driving by when someone flagged him down to help. He met the mom-to-be in the bathroom and coached her into staying calm while he successfully delivered her son.

Now, the baby was 8 weeks early, but is said to be doing fine. Even still, what a delivery!

She has no other choice but to name her son James. Or maybe Ronald (for Ronald McDonald).

Honestly, it is hard to imagine a place I would rather deliver my baby in less than McDonald's. That greasy smell, the dirty bathroom, a very young cop. This poor mom was in most other mom's worst case scenario for delivery.

That cop, of course, is a hero. Even still, that poor woman must have had about 100 people she would have preferred be with her at such an intimate moment. In the end, the baby is healthy and mom is OK, but what a beginning.

At least he will have a story he can tell the rest of his life. My guess is there are a lot more people conceived in McDonald's bathrooms than born in them on a daily basis.

Where is your worst place you can imagine delivering?

    so why did they flag down the cop instead of calling 911?  I'm sure they did - but it seems odd that it took them so long to get there...
