Titus Sebastian Wagner will likely have a Christian upbringing. That's appropriate, considering that he was born in the church.
The fourth child and first son of Pastor Jerrod and Jennifer Wagner, Titus was born after Sunday's service in a restroom stall at the Huntington Beach Central Library, where Church Alive rents the Talbert Room once a week.
His birth, nine days early, came as a surprise to his mother, who realized she was in labor during the service but was sure she had time to wait until afterward to go to the hospital.
Instead, she found herself on the bathroom floor, leaning against the armrest in a handicapped stall as two friends helped her deliver the baby.
"I think I only pushed four times," Jennifer said. "It was easy."
Jennifer said she had already pre-registered at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange and had a bag of basic needs with her in case she needed to rush to the hospital Sunday. Midway through the service, Jennifer realized she was in labor. She tried walking in the nearby park to relieve her stress, but realized when she returned to the library that the baby was on its way.
