GLASTONBURY -- A Connecticut State Trooper assisted with the deliver of a baby boy Saturday morning. It happened on Route 2 near exit 5B on the westbound side in Glastonbury.

The mom, Itohan Oyabure-Okafur gave birth to Ebenezer Okafur, the 6lb 2oz baby, as her brother, Chris Broderick, was driving her to Saint Francis Hospital.

He was a bit of a surprise to Itohan, given Ebenezer was not expected to make his debut until December 29.

Ebenezer will also have an 18-month-old brother, and the entire family is doing well and enjoying their Christmas gift.

Later in the day Trooper Capps went to meet the little guy in person!
