According to CBS News, Kenyarda Dukes unexpectedly went into early labor, leaving her 11-year-old son James to deliver her newborn. She told CBS News, “All of a sudden I couldn’t get to the bed anymore, so I just collapsed on the floor.” James called 911 and followed the operator’s directions and successfully delivered Baby Royal and he is reported to be in good health.
Kenyarda says James was her “guardian angel. He played the man. He played the doctor. He was a superhero.” He is going to make a fine doctor one day.
