NEW ROCHELLE - A Bronx couple got a special delivery when they visited their favorite Mexican restaurant this weekend.

Alejandro Gonzalez and his pregnant wife, Mary, stopped into Cafe Veracruz in New Rochelle for a take-out dinner when the mother-to-be started to feel uncomfortable and went to the bathroom.

That’s when the restaurant staff and her husband began to hear screaming. Gonzalez was able to deliver their daughter, Alexa Bella Gonzalez, before an emergency crew arrived.

The newborn, who weighed in at almost 6 pounds, and her mother are resting at Soundshore Medical Center. The baby’s due date was not supposed to be until June 10.
