First responders delivered a baby on a California Freeway after the father was pulled over for speeding.

The family was travelling from northern to southern California for a doctor visit Tuesday when the mom started to have contractions.

Officers near Bakersfield stopped the father for driving 110 miles per hour.

But instead of a ticket, officers and firefighters helped deliver the healthy baby boy.

Both mom and baby were rushed to the hospital, but not before dad posed for a picture.

Captain Jeff Tape of Kern County Fire said, "He (the dad) was a little excited which makes sense, I think I'd be a little excited too."

Adam Tayor, CHP added, "Dad's heart rate finally came down."

The officers even stopped by the hospital with a Valentine's Day gift for the new bundle of joy.

Mom, dad and baby are all doing okay.
