Midland guitarist has quite the interesting story when it comes to his second childs birth… Jess Carson and his wife have welcomed their second child,, Parker Emmanual, at 9:20AM on Sunday, May 14, in Texas, after a frantic hour-long drive from their home in Driftwood, Texas to the nearest hospital, which is in Austin.
And she ALMOST made it… but the couple revealed to People that the labor came on so suddenly and it was so intense that Carson’s wife, Camille, ended up having to give birth in the parking lot of the hospital before they could even get inside!
Carson says that “terrified doesn’t begin to describe” how he was feeling in that moment… we can’t even imagine!
He says, “We’re like halfway there and she’s saying, ‘Oh no, oh no, he’s coming. She calls the midwife and the midwife’s on the phone and she’s yelling at me and telling me to pull over and she’s gonna talk me through delivering Parker.”
They ended up making it to the emergency room roundabout of the hospital in south Austin. Carson then says when he put his vehicle in park and went around to the passenger side to get his wife, “opened the door and [Parker] just came out.”
Fortunately, Parker was in good health. He weighed 7 lbs., 11 oz., and measured 19.5 inches long at birth.
“He’s good — he had a wild entrance, but he’s healthy and he’s a happy little boy,” Carson shares. “He’s pretty rambunctious, he likes to keep us on the move.”
