That’s one way to pass the time while waiting for your little bundle of joy to make her debut into the world!
Jadie Phelps, 29, from Bedford, Texas, was patiently waiting to give birth to a baby girl when her partner, 26-year-old Jordan Houston, and his brother Derien broke into song in the delivery room.
Jordan told Caters News, “It was completely spontaneous, it just happened, the nurse asked us if we had a birthing song or playlist we wanted to play for Jadie.”
“Her sister said, ‘Hey we should do the “Push It” song,’ my brother started humming the bassline, I started beatboxing over the top and Jadie and her sister rapped the lyrics,” he added.
“I had no idea they knew all the words to the song, then my mom started doing her shoulder shimmy in the back and it became a party. It was not rehearsed and just happened naturally, we are always making stuff up on the go.”
Jadie and Jordan didn’t expect the video to go viral, though.
“When we posted it we watched the views and shares shoot through the roof, friend of friends of friends and then people we didn’t know sharing it,” he said. “Within five hours the video had circulated all over America then to Australia, London and elsewhere. It was crazy and so shocking, but it was awesome to read the comments and how happy people are, I never imagined it would reach so many people.”
The song seemed to help the delivery along; once the doctor entered the room, in about 10 minutes and only two pushes, Jadie became a mother of three, giving birth to Alaya, who weighed a healthy 5 lbs., 8 oz.
Congrats to the happy couple!
