One of the most exciting times in our life is when we have a child. From the moment that we find out we are pregnant, we are full of excitement and anticipation. It can also lead to some stress, especially when it comes to the delivery. One family in Texas, Jadie Phelps and Jordan Houston decided to make the most of the situation and have some fun.
Jadie and Jordan were not alone when it came time for the delivery. They had a room full of family and nurses who were more than happy to take part in the blessed event. They even took it a step further and did an a cappella version of ‘Push It’ by Salt-N-Peppa.
When you consider what Jadie was going through at the time, the song seemed rather appropriate. We are so happy that they decided to share the video of what happened.
Sing this song next time you decide to have a baby… my little girl came literally 10 mins later! ???????? #PushIt

The video carried the caption on Facebook: “Sing this song next time you decide to have a baby … my little girl came literally 10 [minutes] later!”
True to his word, the baby decided to make an appearance just after singing the song. Baby Alaya was born at Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas, on Dec. 13.
It doesn’t matter if you are a parent or a parent-to-be, you are going to love this song. The light-hearted approach to waiting for the arrival made for a wonderful video and it has been viewed more than 10 million times.
Twitter user @RmenJam3070 took the words right out of our mouths when he said: “Awwwwwwwww”

@Nickilishious took things even further when he said it was ‘goals’ for expecting couples.

Twitter users aren’t the only ones who loved the moment. The staff at the hospital also loved it and they even made the family perform it multiple times.
“The nurses are like you have to do that for the doctors,” the couple told WFAA. “We ended up performing it like three times.”
The mom said she didn’t have to push very long. It was a very speedy delivery.
“She came out in two pushes, which was amazing,” she said.
I guess that is what happens when you are motivated by a classic. Congrats to the new family!
