The stork seems to have a thing for Walmart.

Oklahoma couple Brandi and Jeff Ross welcomed the newest member of their family on Thursday, while parked in the superstore's parking lot. According to NBC News, they had just been sent home from the hospital because doctors didn't think Brandi was ready to deliver.

But, as NewsChannel 4 reported, they were only 30 minutes away when Brandi realized she wasn't going to make it.

“I was yelling at [Jeff] to just park the freakin' car and catch the baby,” she told the station.

He pulled over, called 911 and the dispatcher told help was on the way.

“It was terrifying,” Jeff said. “I had no idea what to do."

A recording of Jeff's call to 911 was provided to KFOR.

"My wife's water just broke. She's in labor. She doesn't think we're going to make it to the hospital ... OK, I just pulled into this Walmart on Highway 152," you can hear Jeff tell the dispatcher. Brandi is in the background, sounding a little more panicked. "I need a f**king doctor!" she yelled. (Listen to the call in the video above.)

Only a little over three minutes later, baby Berkley Sullivan was born. She let out her first "hello world" cry as sirens wailed in the distance with paramedics coming to take all three to the hospital.

After a dramatic entrance, both Mom and baby are reported to be doing well.

And Berkley joins a growing number of babies who have been born in or around a Walmart store this year. One arrived in the bathroom of a Banks County, Ga., Walmart in January. Less than three months later, another baby was born in a New York Walmart's pharmacy.

"I wish it was another location," Brandi told NBC. "But she came out and she's healthy and it's a great story to tell her."
