VIDEO: Dad-to-be films wife in labor

HOUSTON - When a Texas woman went into labor in the middle of the night, her husband found the time to both be supportive and capture the whole event on camera.

The video shows Kristen and Troy Dickerson speeding down the highway to a Houston hospital on June 28, ABC News reported. Kristen is clearly in pain during the car ride and begs Troy to pull over.

The couple arrived to the hospital and Troy tried to get Kristen in a wheelchair so they could go inside, but the baby was already on the way.

Kristen was standing when she delivered baby Truett at 2:05 a.m. and Troy was there to catch the baby and encourage his wife along the way.

"I’m thrilled to have the footage," Kristin told ABC News . "I’m more hesitant to send it to people, because it’s such an intimate moment for us, but as a birth educator, it’s really cool to let people see that our bodies know what to do."

Kristen said her husband loves to use his GoPro camera while biking and surfing, so it was second nature for him to strap the camera to his head during Truett’s birth.
