An Unexpected Birth!

It Was The Husband's Decision

It feels great to be a father, but to bring your own son into this world is a tremendous feeling.
He also recalled how his daughter, Amaia, was born only after a three-day-long labor, but thankfully, this time around, things went by fairly quickly.

Nunez also professed that it was his decision to not call the ambulance when he noticed that the baby's head had already started crowning.
Instead, he decided to step up and prepare for delivery.
"Amaia was the most excited," the happy father added. "She already wanted to hold her little brother!"
