A Milwaukee family welcomed their new baby Sunday morning in their own garage. 

Michelle Huntley and her husband were expecting their second child to arrive any day, but on Sunday morning Michelle went into labor and the family couldn't make it to the hospital in time. 

Michelle says her mother, a former labor and delivery nurse, was with her at the time and helped deliver a healthy, 9-pound 2-ounce baby girl while Michelle sat in their parked car. 

Michelle says it also happened to be her birthday. 

They were brought to Froedtert Hospital after the delivery and both Michelle and her daughter are doing well.
