Amanda McBride made news this week when she gave birth while driving a Chevy Cobalt. Now Chevy is rewarding the mother with a stroller, safety seats, and a year's supply of diapers.


Northern Minnesota resident McBride was working when she felt she was about to give birth. (How's that for multitasking?) She jumped in her Chevy Cobalt and went to pick up her boyfriend Joseph, who isn't able to drive due to seizures. Before they could make it to the hospital, she heard the cry of her baby and asked Phillips to grab the wheel. She did what any mom in her situation would do: She pulled down her pants, turned up the heat, and gave birth mid-motion.

"We knew the Cobalt was designed to deliver its occupants safely, but never did we expect a delivery quite like this," said Margaret Brooks, Chevrolet Product Marketing Director, Small Cars and Crossovers.

As recognition for McBride's unconventional delivery, Chevy is offering the family a year's supply of diapers, two child safety seats, a stroller, and other supplies like bottles and formulas. It's a nice gesture. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what you get for conceiving a baby in a Cobalt?
