A pregnant woman and her fiancé were on their way to a hospital when they gave birth with the help of restaurant workers at a nearby McDonald’s in the United States. New York Post reported.
According to the outlet, parents Alanria Worthy and Deandre Phillips were on their way to a hospital in Atlanta on Nov. 23 when they stopped at McDonald’s for a quick break.
When the manager, Tunisia Woodward, entered the toilet, she was startled. The manager said Ms. Worthy was screaming because her water broke.
“I’m in labor. Somebody get the man in the car,” Worthy yelled, according to the Post. The manager then called colleagues Sha’querria Kaigler and Keisha Blue-Murray to help deliver the girl.
One of the co-workers called 911 and the other helped the father-to-be who realized his baby girl was about to be delivered to the diner. “The ladies at McDonald’s were standing in front of her and holding her hands,” Mr Phillips told the Post.
“I propped her feet up on my knees. We told her to push three times,” he continued.
Nandi Ariyah Moremi Phillips was delivered in form in less than 15 minutes. She was nicknamed ‘Little Nugget’. According to the outlet, both the mother and baby are doing well.

“We’re all mums, so we put our heads together, and all we needed was for Dad to catch the baby – and he did,” manager Woodward told The Post.
According to the outlet, franchise owner Steve Akinboro said he gave the staff members who helped with the birth $250 gift cards each. “We don’t just serve food. We strive to serve feel-good moments every day, and this was basically the epitome of a feel-good moment for my team,” he added.
