Wal-Mart has been the scene of many unbelievable tales over the years. Epic Black Friday fights, Tickle Me Elmo stampedes and, apparently, home to some surprise baby deliveries, too.

According to WKMG6 News, a Melbourne, Fla., dad was just running in to pick up a few items at Wal-Mart when he left his pregnant wife and three daughters in the car to wait. Imagine his surprise when he popped back out—just minutes later—to find Baby No. 4 had literally just arrived in the front seat.

The parents, who wish to remain anonymous, were transported to nearby Holmes Regional Medical Center, where mom and baby are reportedly doing great. WKMG6 even said it'll be sending the family care packages and gift cards to help them out in these first few weeks.

Amazingly, this isn't the only birth that's happened in the store's parking lot recently. Just last October, an Oklahoma couple delivered a baby in the backseat of their car at a local Wal-Mart. In their case, the dramatic birth was all caught on 9-1-1 tapes and later shared.

"I wish it was another location," mom Brandi told NBC after the birth. "But she came out and she's healthy and it's a great story to tell her."
