FORT DODGE, Iowa -- Sometimes there's no such thing as “hold on five minutes.”

Ben and Rachel Kohnen didn't have time to pass go when baby number four decided she was ready to arrive. In the middle of the night, they raced to the hospital, and picked up some company along the way.

“He starts following me and he turns on his lights, and my wife says we can't pull over the baby is coming now,” says Ben.

Long story short: a police chase ensues, backup arrives, tire spikes go out and the Kohnen's start freakin’ out!

“I was in the middle of the highway having contractions with guns pointed at me,” says Rachel.

As it turns out, the cops ended up escorting the family to the hospital where the babe was safety born.

Ben still may get a ticket, but in the scheme of things, who cares!
