Jennifer Wagner experienced what she thought were Braxton Hicks contractions as her husband Jerod preached for church Alive Sunday at the Huntington Beach Central Library.
As the service continued, she realized she was in labor.
"I didn't want to tell my husband yet because I knew he had to preach still. It wasn't until halfway through the sermon I realized these were real contractions," the 38-year-old told the O.C. Register.
After the service, Wagner decided to head for the hospital, however, she felt like she needed to use the restroom. When she got there, she realized she needed to push.
After five pushes, Titus Sebastian was born at 6 pounds, 5 ounces -- the couple's first son.
All were checked out at the hospital and are doing well.
Wagner says with her first three children she had epidurals so she didn't know what contractions "at the end" felt like.
