It wasn't how they envisioned the birth of their third child, but the end result made for an exciting story.


Jacob and Brittany Doherty were at a Fourth of July pool party and had just made it home when Brittany's water broke. She told Local 12 that on the way to the hospital, she told her husband that she wasn't going to make it so they pulled over at mile marker three on I-471 north.

“We are excited but nervous because she normally goes fast, so we’re trying to make sure that we’re not having this baby in the car,” Jacob told Local 12. “By the time I got out of the car and around the car and opened her door, the baby was already in her seat.”

The baby, Tobias Edison Doherty, was delivered in less than three minutes on July 5, 2020.

Fort Thomas officers, Joe Paolucci, Derek Faught and Southgate officer, Garrett Haynes arrived on scene to help after 911 dispatchers stayed on the phone throughout the delivery with the Tobiases.

“When I watch our footage that Jacob took of the experience, it definitely brings me to tears and makes me emotional. I’m still realizing the fact that I delivered my own baby in a car and I never thought that I would,” Brittany told Local 12.
