The couple planned on having an at-home birth, but, because their midwife had not arrived in time, Hexum was forced to literally welcome his daughter himself.
He tells People.com, "After Max's head popped out, the delivery stalled for the next couple of contractions.The baby's head was blue and the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck. I was worried the cord was choking her, keeping blood from getting to her brain."
Thankfully, moments later, a nurse arrived to help.
He adds, "We never went to the hospital. We just sat in bed laughing and crying tears of joy about what a crazy experience it was."
The couple now has two babies at home - little Echo was born last year (10).
