Local Man Delivers Fiancee’s Baby

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It was just after 11 a.m. when the Harmony ambulance crew in Butler County got the call about a baby being born on the side of Lindsay Road in Jackson Township.

Chase Texter and his fiancé, Brandy Palyash, were trying to make it to Mercy Hospital, which is a 45-minute drive from their home in Butler.

Brandy went into labor, and since the couple has gone through this twice before, they thought they had lots of time.

The baby knew just how little time they did have. Chase realized that a little too late.

“Got on the road, got past Evans City and it sped up,” Chase said. “She said she felt like she needed to push and she says it was coming out, so I had to pull over, and deliver it on the side of the road.”

I know what you are thinking, why didn’t they call 911? They did. Chase says 911 told them to try to make it to UMPC Cranberry, and again, the baby had her own schedule.

The father realized that when this happened.

“The head was coming out, and I said, ‘Go ahead and push’ and she pushed,” Chase said. “It came out. I pulled it up.”

Chase says at first the baby wasn’t breathing, but he cleaned out her mouth and everything was fine. He told KDKA-TV’s Brenda Waters he knew what to do from watching television and the fact that they have two other children. When asked if there would be other babies and if he would be delivering them, Chase said no on both counts.

They named the baby girl Bella Rose. When she leaves the hospital, she will join her nine-year-old sister and two-year-old brother at home in Butler.

    Fiancee but no ring, another bundle of welfare joy that we are going to have to take care of along with the other ones she has.

    1. Chip says:

      Your comments are hilarious! But how do you know she doesn’t have a ring? Just curious…I read the story twice and watched the video but didn’t see any proof. I totally agree with you, I’m just wondering how you know about the ring.

    2. Tie It In a Knot says:

      Exactly….This moron puts the cart before the horse…….He needs to stop poluting the gene pool….They need to sterilize him

  5. Yeah Right says:

    Hey Tax Payer I work with a woman that has an 11 year old son and a ‘fiancee’ of seven years with no wedding date or ring in sight.

      Whats your point?

  6. gitrdone says:

    born another burdon on society..no responsibility for ones own actions…

  7. Just Saying... says:

    Does anybody else find it interesting that everytime the father references his newborn child he calls her an “it”?

  8. Ignorance says:

    some of your comments are very hurtful. I am single parent however, I have my own job, and I am not using the state for any assistance. You can not judge everyone that has a child out of wedlock. Sometimes its for the best, that way. Nobody is perfect and people make mistakes but there is no need to be so judgmental. You do not know me or them, you do not have to agree with them or their actions but you have no right to judge.

    you just know this redneck lives in a trailer.

  10. anna says:

    I know this guy personally and 1. hes not on welfare and 2. she doesnt have a ring on it because her hands swelled during pregnancy, so dont ruin one of the happiest moments parents can have because of your mean and ignorant judgments. P.S he does not live in a trailer.

  11. Family Tree With No Branches says:

    He looks inbred

  12. Unbelievable says:

    No but I also know him and he is a crack head…..he has a serious drug problem. He robbed someone I know!
