Talk about an unexpected delivery! Matt Smith, who appeared on the 2000 season of The Real World: New Orleans, ended up helping his wife deliver their daughter by the side of a freeway when he and his wife decided there would be no time to make it to the hospital!
PEOPLE reports that the former reality star, who already has a 2 year old daughter at home, began to drive his wife Candyce to the hospital when they noticed that her contractions were progressing rapidly. But shortly after they got in the car Candyce realized she was out of time and made Matt pull over!
“I opened the door, the phone on 911 clenched between my ear,” Smith, 31, explains to The Arizona Republic. “[Candyce was] very calm, but you could tell that this was not our plan.”
Uh yeah, pretty sure delivering in a car en route to the hospital isn’t in anyone’s plan! Although oddly enough I do have a friend who ended up delivering in the ambulance on the way to the hospital! Thankfully everyone is happy and healthy, and the couple named their little girl Stella St. Clare Smith.
At least she’ll have a great story to tell her friends when she gets older!
