A US soldier was able to witness the birth of his daughter on FaceTime even though his flight home was delayed.

Tracy Dover, who was on the same flight to MS, snapped a photo of Lindsey that went viral, racking up more than 115,000 shares and hundreds of comments.

Lindsey later told a local news channel how he felt about the photo being shared all around the world.

KTVU reports that Brooks Lindsey is part of the 2d Battalion, 114th Field Artillery Regiment.

Soldiers are typically sent home for births only if the mom or baby is in an emergency situation such as theirs. "We all gave him space", Dover wrote in the post. "When we heard the baby cry, we all rejoiced for him".

Over the weekend, Tracy Dover saw an Army soldier in his camouflage uniform posted up intently watching his phone. It was going to be a close call, but his flight was delayed several hours.

Being there in person was out of the question for Brooks, but his delayed flight allowed him to see the birth. The entire airport terminal erupted in cheers when they heard the sound of the newborn crying. "Brooks then went on to say that they were making him board and needed to get off as soon as she finally started to crown", she wrote.

Brooks Lindsey of Brandon, Miss. was watching as his wife, Haley Lindsey, gave birth to their daughter Millie.

Haley Lindsey re-posted the viral video of her husband's airport reaction on her own Facebook page, with fond words and tiny hearts.
