The 911 call made by the Chicago man who delivered his own child after he became stuck in traffic has been released.

Hector Morales and his fiancee Kathryn Engel were on their way to west suburban hospital Wednesday morning.

But they were stopped as police investigated a deadly crash. The baby wouldn't wait, so Morales called 911.

"My fiancee is giving birth right now," Morales tells the 911 operator. "I'm heading to the hospital now but I don't think I'm going to make it. I'm at the corner of Roosevelt and 49th. Baby's here, I gotta go!"

Morales and Engel are the proud parents of a little boy named Aidan and everyone was okay.
