The Maui News - Tanalei was born in her parents' car as it entered the Lahaina side of the pali on Monday, April Fools' Day.
"No, this is not an April Fools' joke," wrote Tanalei's mother, Krysha Kuahuia, in a Virtual Newsroom entry in The Maui News.
Kuahuia, 23, now the mother of three, was having labor pains Monday morning.
"We decided to head to the hospital, and the water broke in the car and I literally pushed her out 30 seconds later," she said.
At about 8:30 a.m., she gave birth in the front seat of the car, driven by the newborn's father, Desmond Vasquez, with her two children in the back.
"It was scary experience," she said. "I didn't think I would have her in the car"
