Woman Gives Birth in Car on Jimmy Kimmel

We Promise, This Is One of the Craziest "Woman Gives Birth in Her Car" Videos Ever

A video of a woman giving birth in her car is unsurprisingly going viral, but the circumstances surrounding her action-packed labor might just make her video one of the craziest ever recorded.

It was so hilarious, in fact, that Jimmy Kimmel happened upon it, shared it on his late-night talk show, and tracked the Texas-based family down to ask them about what happened.

Take a look at the footage – captured by the Alexis Swinney's husband Dominique while he drove the "twelve to fifteen minutes" to the hospital – and try not to shake your computer screen when he asks if she can just "wait, like, two minutes" while she pushes a baby out of her body. Once she holds her newborn baby girl in her arms, Dominique – still driving – pans the camera to the backseat, and let's just say you'll do a triple-take upon discovering what was back there the whole time.

"You actually got out of the car with more kids than you had in it," Jimmy joked to the proud parents.

Watch Jimmy's interview with the family above, and see what Alexis had to say about her car birth (Hint: She's for it!) in her Instagram post below.

There was something beyond special, about getting to deliver my own baby. No doctors or nurses, no lights, or busy people, no one interrupting a moment that should be the most special moments for families as they bring life into the world. The pain was there, but the joy and peace that followed in those minutes we got to spend alone with our sweet girl was more rewarding then anything I could have asked for. I honestly think that God allowed me to deliver safely in the car, instead of making it to the hospital, because He knew that my desire for a birth that was without interruption and full of hormones between baby and I, that desire was so deep. And something that the hospital just couldn't provide for me. People are shocked and often apologize that I didn't make it to the hospital. They don't understand that I just experienced something unrivaled to anything I could have imagined. I witnessed my body take over and a baby be born into my hands. My body is not swollen, and I have no tears. I had my husband and children around me, and for 5 minutes, we embraced everything that happened without any interruption. Our family has preferred a unique chaos It was crazy. But it was Amazing. @birthtube @birthwithoutfear @gracedinbirth @mindfulbirthproject @empoweredbirthproject
