'The hurricane baby' born in Texas during storm

A newborn baby boy in Texas is being called "the hurricane baby."

As Hurricane Gustav approached the gulf coast, little Ryan Walker Erikson was not in the mood to wait until after the evacuation to see the world.

Ryan's mother debated whether to evacuate and take a chance on the delivery, or just head to the hospital.

She chose the hospital, and Ryan was born early monday morning at 8 pounds, 15 ounces.
