A London couple welcomed their newborn son a little early. He arrived on their way to the hospital, along Interstate 75.

"He's perfect. There's nothing wrong with him," said Shonda Durham.

"He's a miracle. The Lord must have been with us because everything worked out right," said Rick Durham.

Like most new parents, Shonda and Rick Durham are proud of their family's new addition. But baby Jameson didn't have your typical delivery.

"I could tell I was getting ready to have him," Shonda said. "I was sitting in the front seat and he was there. It just happened so fast."

On the way to the hospital, Shonda, a Mary Kay beauty consultant, gave birth to baby number three.

"He definitely was determined to get here," she said.

Shonda usually makes business deliveries in her pink Cadillac but she had no idea she'd be delivering something so special inside of it.

"Not only did he come home in one, he arrived in one, " Shonda said.

While still driving, Rick stayed on his cellphone with a 911 dispatcher during the entire delivery. They told Shonda to feel the umbilical cord for a heartbeat to make sure the baby was healthy. Jameson was born strong weighing in at seven pounds and seven ounces.

"He's a great little brother I love him," said Hayden Durham, the big brother.

As if being born in a pink Cadillac wasn't unique enough, his birth certificate is also different than other newborns.

"It say I-75 on it at mile marker 67," Rick said.

By the way, the nurses at the hospital gave baby Jameson the nickname Roadrunner.
