Dad Raps to Fetal Monitor

When LaQuita McDaniel’s fetal monitor started malfunctioning during labor, her husband, Charles, thought he’d lighten the mood a little:

This easygoing dad from Houston, currently an Air Force staff sergeant based in Aviano, Italy, sometimes raps back home under the names Sir Charles or Daddy Charles. He says, “We were just laughing and crazy cracking jokes” as they awaited the birth of the couple’s fifth child, Kingston Josiah.

Hospital staff aren’t sure what was wrong with the fetal monitor, but the baby was fine and was later delivered by C-section.

Mom LaQuita seemed to be a good sport and take it all in stride. All I know is that if my husband starts rapping during my labor, he’d better make sure I have the epidural in first. Either that or earplugs.
