Tampa, Florida -- Wearing a pink hospital cap, little Arabella Grace wasn't too talkative on Wednesday, but someday this little girl will have a good story to tell; one about the day she really surprised her parents.
"She really burst into this world," says mom Latoya Desamour.
You see, this daughter of teacher wasn't about to be tardy and she arrived while her parents were rushing from Brandon to St. Joseph's Women's Hospital in Tampa.
"I'm driving on I-4 going fast," says Dad Wiclef at news conference at the hospital. "And she says, 'I feel like I have to take off my pants' and I'm wondering-why do you have to take off your pants?"
After giving birth to three other children, Latoya knew why. "I pushed again and she just slid out underneath me," said Latoya, who said she held her body up by a strap in the car.
Wiclef pulled the car over and luckily there just happened to be a highway patrol trooper investigating an accident on the other side of the road. "I'm running toward trooper yelling 'she's here, she's here!' and he's looking like-what are you talking about," said Wiclef with a laugh.
But Trooper Dennis Rich didn't hesitate; he pulled on gloves and went to help.
"He saw this baby underneath me," explained Latoya. "He reached and grabbed her and wrapper her up and gave her to me and the rest is history I guess."
The Desamours are thankful that Trooper Rich was prepared to handle a different kind of accident. "I felt secure that there was someone with some type of training that could assist us," said Latoya, intends to give Rich a big hug if she ever sees him again.
As Arabella, well, she's a healthy 6 pounds, 15 ounces; ready for life in the fast lane.
