Specialist Brooks Lindsey was stuck in the Dallas airport when his wife went into labor back in Brandon, Mississippi.
He was able to be a part of the birth, thanks to Facetime.
But it was his fellow passengers capturing his expressions during the birth that have captivated the Internet.
Congratulations... and welcome to the world, Millie FritzAnne Lindsey!

I'm grateful for Facetime so this soldier could witness the birth of his daughter. The age of electronics has given us instantaneous access to our loved ones. Nothing like the old days when my husband was informed by snail mail & it took 5 weeks to reach him aboard ship.— DSF (@DebZGarden) May 7, 2018
I completely understand & hope he gets to see his child soon. My dad was in Korea when I was born, I didn't get to meet him until I was almost a year old. I treasure my father & thank him for his service & sacrifice often.— Melissa Griffin (@Vamp_Diaries) May 7, 2018
