Mounga's story went viral after one passenger, Julia Hansen, announced the news on TikTok, saying in a clip: 'A baby was just born on this plane.'

Footage then captures passengers on board the Delta flight applauding and congratulating the woman for her incredible mid-air feat.

Later, a crew member can be heard over the plane's intercom asking passengers to remain seated 'to allow a passenger to seek medical assistance'.

Hansen added: 'To those wondering how she was able to fly in her third trimester, I sat next to her dad on the plane and he said they didn't even know she was pregnant.'

Several nurses and doctors who were on the flight assisted with the birth.

Lani Bamfield, a nurse from Kansas City, wrote in a Facebook post: 'If anyone would like to know how our trip to Hawaii is going… here's how it started.

'We delivered a 26-27 weeker in the airplane bathroom, in the middle of the ocean, with three NICU nurses, a Physicians assistant, and a family medicine doctor we were able to make it THREE HOURS before we could finally land but the baby and mom did great.
