But his phone started ringing on Thursday, August 17 and he learnt his fiancé was in labor.

“They were going to bring them in on Aug. 17, so we said, ‘Let’s just wait until midnight, and that's what we did and brought them in at 12:35 and 12:36 in the morning.’” Jose Ervin Jr. said.

Jose Ervin III was born at 12:35 a.m., with his sister A-ria being born at 12:36 a.m., weighing just over 5 pounds.
