The baby born on the Dan Ryan expressway Wednesday morning belongs to one of WGN’s very own photographers.

WGN’s Steve Segers and his girlfriend Leighann Coleman were headed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital when Leighann screamed, “the head is out!”

Leighann knew they wouldn’t make it to the hopsital, so Steve called 911 and pulled over on the side of the expressway. He delivered the baby girl with the help of 911 operators.

The Chicago Fire Department responded to their location on the northbound Dan Ryan near 31st around 1:45 a.m.

Leighann gave birth to a healthy 6 lb 8 oz baby girl named Kylie Ann Segers. Her due date wasn’t until June 22.

Mom and baby Kylie are now at Mercy Hospital and both doing well.
