What’s a better Mother’s Day gift than the gift of life?

An Ankeny man delivered his wife’s baby on their bathroom floor Sunday morning.

“The paramedics said basically to push and that’s what I said, push and I caught the baby,” said father Kenny Ayers.

This is the family’s fourth child.

All their other children were delivered in the hospital but by the time he called 911 it was too late.

“She came in like a storm so we might as well name her Stormy.”

Stormy Rose Ayers weighs 6 pounds 6 ounces. Mother and baby are doing fine.
