Giving birth in the backseat of your car must be a totally traumatic experience, which is why we cannot believe how mum and comedian Beth Newell handled it.


Beth has become a viral internet sensation this week, for sending out a hilarious tweet to Honda after giving birth in the backseat of one of their cars!


“Earlier today I gave birth to my daughter in the back of a Honda Fit. It is a mess. Can I have a free car?” she tweeted, jokingly, sharing a photo of herself holding her little one after the experience.



As you can imagine, the internet couldn’t contain their amusement, and Beth’s tweet soon began doing the rounds online.


In an interview with ScaryMommy, Beth revealed that she and her doula were only a few minutes down the road in the car when her baby began making an appearance. Thankfully, though, the hilarious mum-of-two added that she didn’t mind giving birth in the car at all!


While the majority of Twitter users saw the fun in Beth’s tweet, some people apparently didn’t realise that it was a joke, and she received her fair share of trolling on the social media site, too.



However, all was well in the end, with Honda finally responding: “Congrats on your beautiful new baby girl. We’d love to get your contact info to see how we can be of service. Can you please DM us?”


She couldn’t have planned this birthing story if she tried!
