Pretty Little Liars actress Troian Bellisario had to give birth to her second child with Patrick J Adams in their car in the hospital parking lot.
The actress and the Suits star opened up about the surreal experience during a recent episode of Katie Lowes’ podcast, Katie Cribs.
Patrick – who played Mike Ross alongside Meghan Markle’s Rachel Zane in their hit legal series – explained: ‘As soon as I hit the button and get the [parking] ticket, she’s screaming.
‘I whip around, and by the time I turn my head around, Troian is fully on her hands and knees and we’ve gone nuclear.’
Troian – who played Spencer Hastings on PLL – had seen her labor progress quickly on the couple’s way to the hospital in May.
However, the actress said she didn’t immediately go into ‘panic mode’ because the birth of their first daughter lasted over 26 hours.
By the time Patrick drove up to the ER entrance, he realized there was no time to waste as his wife was on all fours and crying out in pain.
The 39-year-old explained: ‘I get up to the [hospital security guard] and I say, “It’s all happening, in the car. You need to get the wheelchair down here, you need to get the people, all the people, all the professionals! It’s happening!”
‘As soon as I open [the car door,] Troian is doing one of her incredible howls.’
The 35-year-old actress screamed for her husband to remove her pants at which point he realized she was already crowning.
Patrick realized that he was going to have to deliver their baby himself as he continued: ‘There was no room for panic. You just need to deal with this situation.’
The Suits star ‘checked the neck’ to make sure that the umbilical cord wasn’t wrapped around it and after only about three minutes it was, ‘One more push and the baby was all the way out.’
The baby was delivered safely and began crying as Troian recalled: ‘I just look over my shoulder, because I’m still on all fours … and I see Patrick holding her upside down, and she’s wailing, so I was like, “She’s alive, she’s OK. She’s breathing.”‘
The couple tied the knot in December 2016 after eight years of dating, and are already parents to two-year-old daughter Aurora.
