What an entrance into the world it was for one local baby – who was born in the front seat of his parent’s car in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Baby Caden couldn’t wait to be born and arrived four days early in his parents Toyota Avensis – minutes after his dad Brendan Cronin pulled into the side of the road in Macroom, on the way to Cork University Hospital.

Weighing in at 6Ibs and 3ozs, both mom Denise and baby are doing fine, Brendan from Tureenamult, Gneeveguilla explained.

“He was born at 2.10am,” Brendan said. “It happened so fast. I rang the ambulance and then pulled in and within seven to eight minutes he was born. I was shocked and so was Denise. But they’re both fine thank God.”

Big brother Nathan (5) and sister Leah (3) are thrilled with the new arrival.
