[Safe for work]

A Brooklyn activist and Occupy Wall Street participant gave birth to a healthy baby girl in the back of a cab on Tuesday in Greenpoint. And the baby's father - Jason Jones - was there to document the whole thing:

It was a weekly video team meeting like any other that we'd had since September. That is, until my wife announced that she was having contractions. I'm a videographer with the Occupy movement and happened to have my camera with me. As soon as my hands were free I pulled it out and started shooting .

“I didn’t even push it just came out,” Mom Beka Economopoulos said in the video, which was titled “Occupy Baby.” “I thought I had a poop and then there was a head. Jason caught the baby!”

To see some adorable pictures of the newest "Occupy" member, check out The Gothamist and meet little Mila Amie Economopoulos Jones.

Congratulations, everyone! She's beautiful!
