Well… at least they made it to the hospital. Jes Hogan of Kansas had a childbirth to remember after photos of her delivering her sixth baby—and first son—on the floor of the hospital's emergency room hallway went viral. Max just couldn't wait any longer and photographer Tammy from Little Leapling Photography was there to capture the moment. This photo has everything a viral picture should, including an amazing nurse going above and beyond. (Photo courtesy Little Leapling Photography)
