THIS video shows the extraordinary moment a woman gave birth in a taxi – and was coached through it by an ice-cool driver en route to hospital.
At the start of the footage, filmed inside the taxi, the woman in labour screams and says: “Oh f***. Oh my gosh…she’s coming out.”
Trying to reassure the woman, the driver tells her: “You’ve got to breathe Mummy.”
Clearly in distress the woman – who is being supported by her partner – shouts back: “Yeah but she’s literally coming out”.
She then tells the driver: “Her head is on my hand”.
The taxi driver responds: “Do the magic, do the magic. Spread your legs. Damn.”
Before long the child is out of the mother’s womb.
Trying to calm the couple down again, the driver says: “We’re driving. Everything is done. You got the s*** done.”
He then jokes: “Just don’t get the seat messy. God bless the baby. We Gucci!”
With the parents panicking about what to do next, the driver tells them to wipe down their newborn with towels.

Before dropping the couple off at the hospital, the driver tells them: “I got this s*** on video.”
He then jokes: “You have to pay me for it…stop playing” before asking them to “hook him up” with a “little extra for the car wash.”
He finishes by saying: “Damn, a natural birth in the car.”
Though the original source of the footage is not known, a timestamp suggests the incident took place on July 13 this year. It’s thought to have taken place in New York.
