Heather Skaats, who already had five children, gave birth to a sixth on the side of a road, according to TODAY Parents.

“I was having light contractions before we left, so I figured I had time to run an errand,” Skaats, 34, told TODAY Parents, adding that her due date was three weeks away and she labored for hours with her older children.

“I thought I wouldn’t have a baby in my arms until eight or 10 hours later,” she said.

But then Skaats’s contractions intensified and started coming very close together.

She said she tried to drive faster to get home in time, but realized that wasn’t going to be possible.

“I pulled over — assured the kids that everything was OK — and then I grabbed my phone and got out of the van,” Skaats said.

Skaats said was in a squat position on the ground when her water broke.

“I put my hand down there and his head started coming out with his body,” she said. “I didn’t even have to push. It was so quick. I was on the phone with my husband, Nick, and 20 seconds later, I was like, ‘He’s here!’”

Skaats was able to catch the little boy, who weighed seven pounds.

“He started crying right away, and he just opened his eyes and looked at me and I said, ‘Yeah, buddy that was fun, huh?’” Skaats recalled.

“I wrapped him in a blanket and drove with him close to my chest,” Skaats said. “I think the kids were in shock. They were pretty quiet.”

Once they finally got to the house, Skaats delivered her placenta in the shower, with help from her 13-year-old daughter, Kaelynn.
