A father-to-be delivered his daughter in the family car after getting lost on the way to the hospital.
Pawel Pyrchala was driving his wife Anita to Aberdeen Maternity Hospital from their home in Ellon in the middle of the night when he took a wrong turn.
By the time Mr Pyrchala, originally from Poland, realised he didn't recognise his surroundings it was too late to grab a map.
Mr Pyrchala, 33, told BBC Scotland: 'We were very close to the hospital, but it was dark. I had to stop.
'I was listening to my wife, there was not any time to plan, I just did what I had to do, and grabbed the baby.
'I gave her back to my wife and called the maternity ward.'
After Mr Pyrchala was given directions to the hospital over the phone he realised how close they were.
When all three arrived baby Emily was warmed up, but she was perfectly healthy and otherwise none the worse from her car delivery.
Mr Pyrchala said: 'The nervous moments were over and it was now the happy stage.
'It seems very surreal, like something that didn't happen - but it did.
'I think it's a good story to the kids later on.'
The couple also have a two-year-old daughter called Sophie.
