Would you trust The Joker to deliver your baby?
A couple in Paris, Tennessee, had faith in Batman's archenemy when the soon-to-be mother of three went into early labor on Halloween night.
Dr. Paul Locus, a doctor at the Henry County Medical Center was dressed in full Joker attire, -complete with greasy green hair and a face full of makeup - when he delivered Brittany Selph's daughter, Oaklyn.
“My wife’s due date was Nov. 5, but that obviously didn’t happen. She woke up Halloween morning to her water leaking,” Brittany’s husband, Justin Selph told People Magazine. “That’s when we found out he was dressed for Halloween that day, as The Joker. We found it very humorous and a little excited that we would have a baby delivered by The Joker.”
After determining it would be hours until Brittany's actual delivery, Locus took a quick break to return home and hand out candy, and would return in traditional medical garb.
Since Locus had been the couple's obstetrician throughout the entire pregnancy, the couple felt comfortable to let him know they would be thrilled if he also returned in full costume.
“We couldn’t help but laugh when he walked in the room!” Justin told Huffington Post in an email. “My wife, being [an] open-minded woman, with a sense of humor, thought it would be hilarious to have such a unique delivery.”
