This baby apparently really loves airplanes.
A woman gave birth to a baby boy while flying over Alaska at 35 weeks pregnant when the newborn arrived in the high skies.
Chrystal Hicks lives in Glenallen, a small town located about 180 miles from Anchorage. Hicks had driven to Anchorage before giving birth to her previous three children, KTUU reports. This time, however, the mom reportedly started feeling painful contractions one month earlier than the expected due date.
Hicks told the news outlet, “I was just having contractions and it wouldn’t stop, and it kept getting stronger and they thought we were going to make it. But we obviously didn’t make it very far.”
She reportedly gave birth just 20 minutes into the flight.
In honor of the baby’s unusual entrance to this world, Hicks named her new son Sky Airon Hicks. When it came time to fill out the birth certificate, however, she said there was a bit of confusion.
Hicks explained, “I just put Anchorage. I didn’t want to put on a plane or in the sky.”
While the mother and baby made it to the hospital safely, Sky was still put on a breathing machine due to being born a month earlier than expected. He’s also reportedly small, weighing only 5 pounds, 10 ounces. What’s more, the family is apparently very excited to welcome a new member who is already famous.
“I think when he’s older, he might get embarrassed about it but I think it’s funny now,” Hicks said. “I think even when he graduates he’ll be known as baby born on a plane.”
