The mother of a baby born mid-flight on an Alaska Airlines service has named her newborn son Sky.
Chrystal Hicks was flying to Anchorage where she was expected to be admitted for the birth of her child.
Sky Airon Hicks was born at 1am (local time), just one hour into the flight from Glennallen. Chrystal was 35 weeks pregnant at the time.
"I was just having contractions and it wouldn't stop, and it kept getting stronger and they thought we were going to make it," Chrystal told local TV station KTUU.
"But we obviously didn't make it very far... It was shocking, it was really weird at first, I didn't know what to think.
"But everybody kept talking about the baby on the plane."
Chrystal and Sky were both in good condition when they arrived at hospital. Sky was put onto a breathing machine as he was born a month premature.
The baby is expected to be discharged from the hospital next week.
Chrystal listed Anchorage as the location of Sky's birth on his birth certificate, writing: "18,000 feet in the air".
She has three other children aged 3, 9 and 11, all of whom were born on the ground.
