Baby on board.

Lesia Pettijohn and her husband Jonathan were on their way to Bay Area Birth Center in Texas. They have been driving for 45 when she realized she was out of time.

It wasn’t long before she delivered baby Josiah in the couple's moving minivan. And the whole thing was captured on video using a GoPro camera.

"Oh, the water broke! The water broke!" Lesia can be heard as her husband continued to drive.

'I didn’t know if he’d be breathing OK'

"The only reason I would pull over is if there is something wrong that needed to be dealt with immediately," Jonathan told KHOU.

Already a dad to two other children, the mechanist kept his cool and guided his wife throughout the whole process.

“I was probably freaking out way more than I should have. But I really didn’t want to have him in the car. I was scared. I didn’t know if he’d be breathing OK or if he would need anything else,” he said.

Luckily, Lesia welcomed their newborn without any problems.

"We just had a baby in the car! We did it!" said Lesia. "He's a boy! Babe, he's a boy!"

The couple shared their video on YouTube and it has gone viral, gaining more than 11 million views in 5 days.
