TV REPORTER Yunus Mulla found himself covering a big news event at home when his baby daughter made a dramatic entrance into the world.
The proud dad helped wife Maire Tracey make the delivery - while taking instructions over the telephone from a midwife.
Yunus, 34, a reporter with YTV's Calendar, had to act quickly when Maire went into labour in the early hours. She gave birth to little Roisin in minutes.
The Scholes, Holmfirth, couple were preparing to leave for hospital when they realised Roisin was all set to make an appearance.
Said Yunus: "At 3am we phoned the hospital saying we thought we'd better come in. We were preparing to go when Maire screamed out that the baby was coming.
"I rang the hospital and the midwife told me to get Maire settled and to hold the baby's head.
"She stayed on the phone and helped us to remain calm."
Yunus said: "There was one scary moment when the umbilical cord was round the baby's head, but we were able to deal with it."
By the time a midwife and paramedics arrived, little Roisin had been born.
Said Yunus: "It all happened so quickly. We rang the hospital at 3am and by 3.15am it was too late to get there."
Roisin weighed in at 7lb 2oz. The couple also have a three-year-old son, Ayman.
Maire, 35, is a producer and director with Granada TV.
Yunus was full of praise for the midwife at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, who talked him through the delivery.
"She was very calming," he said. "It was nice to have a calming voice on the other end of the phone.
"Ayman is thrilled with his new baby sister - and I'm looking forward to reporting the news rather than making it in future!"
