A Huntington Beach church pastor's wife unexpectedly went into labor and gave birth during the congregation's Sunday service.

While churchAlive Pastor Jerrod Wagner was in the middle of his sermon at Huntington Beach Central Library, his wife Jennifer began having contractions.

She went to the bathroom thinking she had plenty of time to get to the hospital, but her baby didn't want to wait for church to be over.

Some women helped deliver little Titus Sebastian Wagner in a bathroom stall. Paramedics were called, and mother and son were taken to a local hospital.
