A soldier stationed in Afghanistan didn't have to miss the birth of his first son here in Birmingham and it's all thanks to Skype.
Although Chris says nothing is like being there in person for your child's birth Skype still allowed him to there without being there.
Little Ronan, 6 pounds, nine ounces, is the Horton's first baby boy. He's joining his big sisters, 4-year-old Stella and 11-month-old Aria.
The only person missing from the family is dad. Chris is in the Army National Guard, stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Victoria says it was hard enough that her husband was away during the entire pregnancy and he also could not be here for Ronan's birth. But Chris says he was not going to miss it for anything.
The couple already communicates through Skype while Chris is away so they decided to try it for the baby's birth.
"We've used it before just at the house it cuts in and out so I was scared he might miss the whole thing," Victoria said. "It did good. He got to see everything, the birth."
Chris says even though technology helped him witness Ronan's birth, the event was still bittersweet.
"Wish I was there to hold him, cut umbilical cord," Chris said via Skype Tuesday. "Nothing beats being there in person but this is second best."
It's been eight months since his deployment so Chris is looking forward coming home and being with his ever-growing family.
Victoria has a lot of family here to help her while Chris is away and he'll will be home in May to reunite with his family and see his son for the first time in person.
