Third-grader helps deliver baby brother

OKLAHOMA CITY (CNN) - An Oklahoma third-grader got a crash course in the 'birds and the bees' when he helped his mom deliver his own baby brother.

Kimberly Tennyson knew she was close to giving birth, but she thought she still had a few days to go.

"Two o'clock in the morning I had no idea he was coming, none whatsoever, until I had contractions," she said. "I just went into labor and he came within 15 minutes."

Ready or not, the baby was going to be born at home.

While Kimberly's grandmother walked her through labor over the phone, and 8-year-old Demarry Love would help deliver his baby brother.

"He did everything, he didn't panic," Tennyson said. "In a time of need, that type of situation, having a baby at home with your kids. Especially an 8-year-old, it tells a lot."

Mom and baby are said to be doing just fine.
