This military dad got to meet his new baby girl from thousands of miles away.

Jason Jernigan, who is with JAG, was about to board his flight home to North Carolina, when his wife Tiffany went into labor. In a blog post on Love What Matters, she says she FaceTimed with him and told him to stay on because the baby was coming.

So he watched on his phone to be part of the special moment. 11-minutes-later, Beckley came into world, and mom and baby were lucky to have dad there, at least digitally.

Jason arrived to the hospital several hours later, where he got to meet his daughter in real-life.
