Baby in a hurry to be born as mom gives birth in Port Coquitlam driveway

Baby born in driveway

A B.C. mom gave birth to her baby in a Port Coquitlam driveway on Monday.

Earlier that day, Frederique Grignon started having contractions and went to her local hospital.

"They said, 'We think you’ll have a baby today, but later, you should go home,'" Grignon told CTV News.

So, the baby's father, Nicholas Van Den Beld, took her to his parents' house, to relax in the soaker tub.

That's when little Loki decided he was in a hurry to be born.

"So we’re thinking, 'Oh my God, we’re actually delivering this baby,'" said mother-in-law Gail Van Den Beld. 

Van Den Beld called 911, and paramedics arrived 10 minutes later. They were about to take Grignon back to the hospital when she gave birth in the driveway – "In front of all the neighbours."
