One fast-food customer and expectant mother walked away with a different kind of ‘Happy Meal’ after delivering her baby in the bathroom of a McDonald’s.
Alandria Worthy and her fiancé stopped at the restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, Wednesday morning so she could use the bathroom as her labor was intensifying.
Within moments, the woman said the labor with her ‘little nugget’ progressed.
‘I went into the bathroom and my water broke immediately,’ Worthy told WXIA.

After the woman began screaming the restaurant’s manager, Tunisia Woodward, went into the restroom to see what was happening.
‘I open this door, didn’t see anyone, but I saw feet (under the door),’ Woodward said. ‘I opened, and she was on this toilet lying back, screaming. Then I knew to tell my crew, “We’re having a baby today.'”
The manager, accompanied by two other employees and Worthy’s fiancé’ Deandre Phillips, immediately jumped into action.
‘I was trying to calm her down because she was frantic,’ Phillips said.
‘I was like, “Just breathe.” I got her on the floor, and I took off my clothes. The ladies at McDonald’s were at her front side, holding her hands, I had her feet propped up on my knees. We told her to push three pushes. She was a fighter.’
The employees also knew what to do, all being parents themselves.

According to the group, it took just a few pushes for the baby, Nandi Ariyah Moremi Phillips, to arrive.
‘Oh, my God, it’s still crazy that it happened,’ Worthy told the Atlanta television station.
The new parents said they believe it was ‘divine intervention’ that led them to the McDonald’s that day and to the group of women who were ready to help.
That ‘divine intervention also led to their nickname for Nandi, which is sure to stick.

‘I said, we’re going to name her Little Nugget. That’s her nickname: McDonald’s Little Nugget,’ the mom said.
‘She’s definitely a nugget,’ Phillips agreed. ‘My parents loved the name, too. We were like, okay, it fits her. My little nugget.’
While the incident caught the attention of media both in Georgia and around the country, it also was brought to the franchise’s owner, Steve Akinboro.
As a reward for the three women’s hard work, Akinboro gave each of the employee’s a $250 gift card.
Woodward told WXIA that she plans to spend some of the money on the new baby.
