Talk about keeping your cool under pressure. Last week New York television anchor Natalie Pasquarella fulfilled her regular duties of reporting the nightly news, but unbeknownst to viewers and the crew at the station, Pasquarella's water broke while she was on the air!

Towards the end of the broadcast, Pasquarella chatted on-air with the other anchors answering a question about Twitter's new character limit when she let out an uneasy laugh. Viewers would later learn, that was the second her water broke and her labor started.

Like a pro, Pasquarella waited until the broadcast was over before alerting her co-workers that it was go-time! Around 13 hours later, she and her husband welcomed a beautiful baby boy named Jamin James Pastore. The little boy, who decided to arrive early, was born weighing in at 5 pounds and 6 ounces.

Congratulations on the cutest breaking news!
