This Birth Photo Shoot Got Real When Mom Couldn't Make It To A Hospital Bed

Mother Jes Hogan had Little Leapling photographer Tammy Karin on standby to take photos of the birth of her sixth child. Bored Pandareports that Karin was ready, because Hogan had been experiencing contractions for days. The parents decided it was time to go to the hospital, because the contractions hadn’t led to labor, and they thought it may have to be induced. That’s not exactly what happened—basically as soon as everyone arrived at the ER, baby Max decided he was ready to come out. Like, extremely ready.

Hogan ended up giving birth in the hospital hallway and it was pretty dramatic:

Brace yourself. The following photos show a woman giving birth extremely explicitly. Ready? Okay.

Hogan’s husband, Travis, was on hand to catch Max. He’d had some warning.

“As we neared the last turn to the hospital I began screaming that baby was coming,” Hogan told BP. “Travis honked the horn rapidly as I screamed through the contractions and he pulled quickly into the ER drive.”

Karin tried to notify the receptionist that they needed medical personnel immediately, but it was too late.

“Oh god, he’s here,” Hogan says she yelled. “I then started to take my pants off because I could feel my body pushing the baby’s head out. I reached down and could feel his head crowning with my hand. I looked at my husband and said, ‘Travis catch him!’ Without any hesitation, he did just that as I felt my body involuntarily pushing his head the rest of the way out.”

A medical professional did make it to Hogan’s side, thankfully, but nature did most of the work in this instance.

And so, Max was born on the floor of a hospital hallway.

But it doesn’t seem like Hogan cared. That’s a moment you kind of get lost in?

“It was my craziest birth, but also, the most perfect. It was not at all what I had planned, but it ended without any intervention, with a healthy baby, and amazing support people by our sides. It was beautiful and I’ll forever love every memory of it,” she said.

Max is the couple’s first son, and obviously a scene stealer already.

Karin also put together a little video with more of the birth story on Facebook.

Her pictures of this unusual birth went viral, but Karin wants to be clear that it wasn’t an accident that she was on hand for the big moment. It’s her job, and she takes lots of photos of moms in the moment they bring a kid into the world.

They just usually do it someplace more planned. Congrats to the beautiful family!

The Rock Sent The Funniest Message To This Sick Grandma In The Hospital

The Rock may be the cutest, sweetest, most enthusiastic celebrity on the planet. He actually seems to care about his fans. Plus, his appeal knows no age boundaries, as a message from the family of 76-year-old Judy Rosenberg attests.

In an Instagram post from The Rock on Sunday, he shares a very special email he got that he claims came out of nowhere. No one on The Rock’s staff has heard of this person, so the fact that he even saw it is something of a miracle. Can you imagine emailing The Rock, and having him actually read it?

It was sent from Judy’s family, and they asked for The Rock to give her a shout out, as she has recently entered hospice for stage 4 pancreatic cancer. But she brought one very special item with her: a sexy cut out of Dwayne Johnson.

The Rock reads off Judy’s email, which says she has five children and 17 grandchildren, and she’s been married to her husband for 57 years. She’d still like for The Rock to call her sexy, though.

Of course, because The Rock’s a gentlemen, he does, and sends along some air kiss and off-color jokes about “practicing” making babies. Don’t worry, Judy is a self-professed “potty mouth,” so she probably loved it.

“The universe works in amazing ways, and I am so glad I got this email,” he says, and wishes her “all the love and all the positive energy in the world.”

The whole video is captioned with an additional message to his biggest grandma fan, reading, “Stay strong Judy, you sexy tiger. We’re all sending you and your family love and light during this time and I’m an extremely grateful man this email reached my eyes. * this kind of stuff will always be the best part of fame. Thx U Universe.”

Hopefully, this message makes it to Judy’s eyes, so she can hear The Rock calling her name as she holds his cut out hand.

The Rock is what dreams are made of, for young and old!
