RUMFORD, Maine — Steve Bronish got the surprise of his life Friday morning when his daughter gave birth to a baby girl while standing in her Gray driveway.

At 5:18 a.m., by herself, Abigail Cain delivered her own baby, Danica AnnMarie Cain, who weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces and measured 20.25 inches long, Bronish, of Rumford, said.

Danica, who is named after race car driver Danica Patrick, was due Jan. 18.

“Abby had a doctor appointment yesterday, and the doctor said her baby would be here anytime, but I didn’t expect she would be born in her driveway,” Bronish said from Mercy Hospital in Portland.

“It was 10 below out, and she had no help at all and out she came right in the driveway. It’s quite an amazing story. I’m pretty excited.”
