Think having a crying baby seated next to you on a flight is tough?
Passengers on a Cebu Pacific Air flight from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to the Philippines had to deal with a baby's first cries.
Yup. The bundle of joy was born on the plane.
Missy Berberabe Umandal, one of the passengers, took to Facebook to share the miraculous story, which went viral. According to her, if the passengers weren't surprised enough, the very new mother certainly was: The baby girl, who has since been named Haven, arrived prematurely, two months earlier than expected.
Here's how it all went down, according to Umandal: After the woman in labor began experiencing contractions, flight attendants brought her to the front of the plane, where — even if there wasn't a ton of real medical equipment — at least there was a tad more privacy.
"We only heard one semi-loud screech, and a few seconds later, there were tinier, cute screeches, and it was when we knew the baby was born ... Moments later, the woman got up to go back to her seat, baby in arms," wrote Umandal.

The plane was then diverted to India, where the woman and her child were given more medical attention. Umandal initially wrote that the newborn would reportedly receive free flights from the airline for life.
Well, not quite (especially if you're this guy). Cebu Pacific Air clarified the baby's windfall in a tweet Wednesday morning.
"Cheers to #BabyHaven, born in inflight," the airline tweeted from its official account. "To celebrate, we give her 1M GetGo points."
Not a bad way to enter this world, if you ask us.
In a press release on the airline's website, CEO and President Lance Gokongwei praised the crew members for their teamwork and shared an update.
"We are happy that both mother and daughter are doing well, and would like to commend our flight and cabin crew for handling the situation with utmost professionalism and efficiency," he wrote. "We also express our sincerest gratitude to the two volunteer nurses who helped ensure the baby's safe delivery."
In an email to TODAY, Umandal also elaborated on the experience.
"Our flight was during night time, and so majority of the passengers were asleep and extremely tired, including myself," she said. "My mom woke me up a few hours after the plane took off, saying that the mother was about to give birth. I was startled!

"My first thought was, 'Am I dreaming? I'm pretty sure this only happens in movies.'"
She looked to her right and saw a woman taking deep breaths surrounded by a panicked cabin crew.
"Surprisingly, it was not a very loud event," she added.
And she's quick to give credit where credit's due — that is, to the "wonder woman" who gave birth at some 30,000 feet in the air.
As for how little Haven is doing now?
Umandal says she's been contacted by relatives and friends of the mother. "All of them are telling me that the baby and mother are doing very well, and that there's no cause of worry," she said. "The baby is currently in an incubator since she was born prematurely, but for the most part, she's a healthy little girl."
Though Umandal has yet to meet the mom, she told us that the pair "will remain in (her) thoughts and prayers, and probably for the rest of (her) life."
