BOSTON (CBS) – A surprise delivery on board a plane bound for Logan Airport.

Aida Alamillo and her newborn son Kevin are resting comfortably in a California hospital, after a surprise delivery over the Pacific Ocean. Alamillo was flying from the Philippine’s to move to Beverly with relatives, when she went into labor.

She says the flight crew moved her to a private area of the plane, and tried to help her relax. Alamillo says they told her, “If you can do it, don’t have a baby here because we won’t land for an hour or two.”

But baby Kevin didn’t want to wait. The flight departed Manila at 10:24PM, Kevin was born at 3:25 pm, and arrived San Francisco at 7:27PM

Alamillo’s sister, Leoni Bauermeister says, “I cannot believe it really happened… We were praying she was not going to have the baby on the plane, but I guess the baby was ready to come out.”

Family in Beverly can’t wait to meet baby Kevin. Bauermeister says, “Everybody is so excited. We are not able to sleep well because we are all excited.”

Kevin’s middle name is Francis. Why? His mom says, “San Francisco, USA.”
