A couple welcomed their third child Tuesday morning on the side of I-495 in Boxborough.

Jennifer Scalise was in labor when she and her husband were en route to Emerson Hospital. She then told him to pull over because the baby was coming. After her husband called 911, Scalise gave birth to Harper Grace in the backseat of their minivan. 

Scalise said her husband caught his daughter and wrapped her in his fleece jacket. EMS crews arrived shortly after the birth and brought the family to Emerson Hospital in Concord. The family said they are very grateful for the support they were given by EMS and the hospital.
