Chick-Fil-A has always been the Griffin family’s favorite restaurant, but it was not the place they planned to deliver their baby. However, that’s exactly what happened.

In fact, Robert and his wife Falon bought Gracelyn a “Little Nugget” onesie three months ago, never knowing how appropriate it would be.
On Tuesday evening, Falon began intense contractions so she and her husband headed to the hospital.
On the way, the couple dropped off their two older daughters with a family friend. They met in the parking lot of a local Chick-Fil-A. It was then that Falon said she had to use the restroom and couldn’t wait.
Although the restaurant was closed, the staff let Falon in. That’s when she went into labor.
“I’m about to dial 911, I open the door and she’s just screaming,” Brenda Enriquez, the Chick-fil-A store director, told KSAT 12 News.
Enriquez grabbed towels, yelled for Robert, and that’s when dad had to deliver.
“I looked at her and said, ‘We’re going to do it right here, right now’,” Robert Griffin said.
“I stopped her at her shoulders because I saw what looked to be a white collar around her neck, and it was the cord that had been wrapped around her neck twice.
He managed to get it off, saving his daughter’s life.
Robert delivered his daughter at 10:30 p.m.
Ten minutes later, emergency medical services personnel arrived and took the family to the hospital.
As a reward for her unexpected birth at the restaurant, Chic-fil-A is giving Gracelyn free food for life and a guaranteed job at 14 years old.
