It was a very special Thanksgiving for a Westchester couple who delivered their baby girl in their SUV, on the side of the Sprain Brook Parkway in Yonkers.

Terrice and Austin Thomas were already headed to Phelps Hospital but the Thanksgiving Day traffic made their trip a little too long. Then Terrice's contractions came faster and they decided to pull over.

Terrice told WABC 7, "We pulled over, he called 911, they started to walk him through what to do, and I'm like, 'I'm here, I'm over here,' I called out to the dispatcher, 'I'm here, I'm over here, the baby's coming.'"

Austin Thomas described the scene: "I saw the baby's head; the baby's head was out. So he was saying to me, 'Listen the baby's going to be slippery, you got to catch it. Don't let it fall, you got to catch the baby.'"

The Yonkers Fire Department got the call about a woman in labor at 1:48 p.m., and the baby was been born by the time firefighters arrived on the scene, Lieutenant Peter Connelly told the Journal News. Once they were on the scene, Conelly said the firefighters checked the baby's vital signs and cut the umbilical cord.

The Thomases and healthy baby Taliah are now at the hospital.
