SOUTHPORT, England – A family has a new addition after the father delivered the baby when a sneeze sent his wife into labor.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Rachel Singleton of Southport, England was enjoying dinner with her family at home when her husband sprinkled pepper on a plate.
“When he sprinkled some pepper on his plate, it made me sneeze and that was it,” said Singleton. “My water broke.”
