LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Justin Wright was at work near Victoria, Texas when he found out his wife had gone into labor.

"So I drove here as fast as I could," said Wright.

Justin and his wife Danielle welcomed their third child Ava Grace into the world Wednesday afternoon, she was the first baby born in Lufkin in 2014.

"I started having contractions at about 3:00 a.m., 3:30a.m., yesterday morning and we got here about 4:00 a.m. and then I had her at 2:06 p.m.," said Danielle Wright.

A minute too soon for her dad.

"I walked in as they were cleaning her up I just missed it I walked in at 2:07 p.m. she was born at 2:06 p.m.," said Justin Wright.

But Justin says he's just glad she's here.

"We weren't expecting her until the 24th and she just came on," said Justin Wright.

Fortunately for his wife Danielle another familiar face was with her in the delivery room.

"Dr. Arnold delivered me 27 years ago and it was kind of neat that he could deliver my baby," said Danielle Wright.

Danielle says the doctor she had for her first two pregnancies no longer practices so she went with Dr Michael Arnold, Arnold wasn't available to interview on camera but he did say he was happy to do it.

And these proud parents say are happy to start the new year with a healthy new addition to their family

"It's a blessing, its a blessing to have a child to begin with," said Danielle Wright.

Baby Ava weighed in at five pounds, nine ounces and was seven and a half inches long.
