Some people are just born with luck. That’s exactly what happened on Tuesday night in San Antonio, when Falon Griffin began intense contractions so she and her husband, Robert, headed to the hospital.
Here’s where the story gets wild…
According to KSAT:
On the way to the hospital, the couple dropped off their two older daughters with a family friend. They met in the parking lot of the Stone Ridge Chick-Fil-A on U.S. 281 and Evans Road. It was then that Falon Griffin said she had to use the restroom and couldn’t wait.
The Chick-Fil-A was closed, but the couple banged on the door and begged the staff to use the bathroom. “I didn’t know I was going to have a baby in there! I was going to the restroom,” Falon Griffin said.
By the time she made it to the bathroom, Baby Gracelyn was ready to make a grand entrance.
“I’m about to dial 911, I open the door and she’s just screaming,” said Brenda Enriquez, Chick-Fil-A store director.
Enriquez grabbed towels, yelled for Robert Griffin, and that’s when dad had to deliver.
“I looked at her and said, ‘We’re going to do it right here, right now,'” Robert Griffin said.
And just like that, Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin had arrived. They ironically already had a Chick-fil-A onesie ready to go prior to the birth.
“Her birth certificate reads ‘Born in Chick-Fil-A’ and the hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician,” Robert wrote in a Facebook post.
This is where the story gets even better. The newborn will get free food for life at Chick-fil-A and a guaranteed job when she turns 14.
I can see it now. All the pregnant couples just hanging out in Chick-fil-A bathrooms, waiting, hoping, praying…
