Is it teething time for your little one?


This is definitely a unique birth story.


A woman gave birth to a baby boy on the metro yesterday, in the French capital.


It has now been reported that the newborn will have free travel on the rail service until he turns 25. 


The French train service, the RATP, confirmed in a tweet that the baby boy would receive the free travel. 



The event was documented on Twitter by the RATP.


They said the baby was born on the RER A in the middle of Paris.


The unexpected arrival of the baby disrupted traffic on the RER A line.


It's reported that rescue workers took both mother and child to the nearest hospital.



The “unannounced birth” was displayed on Paris train traffic screens.


The RER A line tweeted its “sincere congratulations” to the baby’s mother.


They also informed passengers that traffic was back to normal.


Parisians extended their congratulations of the birth on social media and enquired about the health of mother and baby.


RER A reports both are doing well.
