311 frontman Nick Hexum delivered his daughter Maxine after his wife Nikki suddenly went into labor.
Hexum, 41, and his wife Nikki planned a homebirth for their second child’s delivery with a midwife but had to take matters into his own hands when she suddenly went into labor.
The singer noticed there was a problem when the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck. He remembered his daughter Echo’s birth 21 months ago and knew to reach in and rotate the baby.
The rocker said the baby wasn’t moving when she was first delivered, but said, “I jiggled her around until I heard a ‘wahhh!’ It was an amazing moment.”
The couple’s midwife arrived about ten minutes later and cut baby Maxine’s umbilical cord. Mom and baby are both doing well.
