Mom Nancy Ray shared the amazing story on Instagram.

"April 14: Surprise! I'm pregnant!

June 9: You're having your third girl! We were gender surprised with our first two babies but my husband insisted to know if he was having three girls so he could mentally prepare haha!

December 8: Snow and ice storm shuts down raleigh. I am positive I'll give birth without electricity at home. Thankfully that did not happen.

December 10: Baby girl is due

December 12: I get the stomach bug all day & my husband is diagnosed with 2 strains of the flu that night (and let me just say puking while 40w2d pregnant is a unique kind of awful)

December 13: I drive to the birth center with intense contractions with my mom at 11am and meet my hubby there (he spent the night at his moms because #flu). Two hours later, my baby was born with me halfway in the tub! 15 minutes later, we went to cut the chord and I said... 'WHAT IS THAT?!? Is this a boy baby!!?' Indeed, it was a boy! My husband @willrray quickly lifted his leg to check and then proceeded to literally fall on the floor. (The picture above is him checking!) I will forever advocate for birth photography because this is one of my very favorite photos of all time. Thank you."
