CHARLESTON, S.C., May 17 (UPI) -- A South Carolina couple said their son was born on the family's sailing vessel when the mother went into labor aboard the docked ship.

Nicole Midence and her husband, Jack, said they were on Jack Midence's parents' boat, the Kitty Hawk, early Tuesday at Ashley Marina in Charleston with their 18-month-old daughter, Marietta, when Nicole went into labor, WCSC-TV, Charleston, reported Thursday.

The couple said they called their midwife, and baby Jack Benjamin Midence was born at 8:01 a.m. weighing 8 pounds, 1 ounce.

The elder Jack Midence said he "got to catch the baby on his way out" and his daughter greeted her new brother with hugs and kisses.

Midence said he entered the event in the ship's log.
