Woman gives birth to baby at Nebraska zoo

Kymica Hubbard wasn’t due until mid-May, so when she told her husband she was having contractions during a trip to a Nebraska zoo on Sunday, he thought she was exaggerating.

“I was having contractions and it was getting closer and closer together and I was telling my husband, ‘OK, it’s time to get off the (zoo) train and let’s go to the emergency room,’ but he kept telling me I’m over-exaggerating,” the 24-year-old told the Associated Press.

Sure enough, Hubbard’s water broke in the middle of the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium and less than two minutes later, her husband Justin caught their newborn daughter in a sweater while a crowd gathered around them.

“She was crying. You know, cooing,” Justin, 27, told The Associated Press. “And it was just the most beautiful thing that a man can ever see. I mean, it was a truly blessed experience. It was a crazy experience. I mean, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

Their daughter, named Drea Hubbard, was born weighing 5 pounds, 5 ounces, and was already given the nickname “Pooh Bear” by her proud parents, according to The Associated Press.

“I never thought I’d be having a baby in a public place,” Kymica told the news outlet.

Justin said they will return to the zoo to celebrate Drea’s future birthdays.
