Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider’s latest grandchild was born over the weekend on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles, it’s been confirmed.
His singer, songwriter son Jesse was driving wife Patty to the hospital, when their fourth child Parker Pride Snider arrived quicker than her parents had expected.
Jesse, who’s the singer in Baptized By Fire, posted an Instagram update with the caption: “We had the baby in the car on the 405! No, joke. Easiest birth we’ve had.”
He later added: “This is what I’ve always wanted. Four kids. And somehow I got even luckier than that and had four healthy ones. I’m so blessed. My wife is such an amazing woman. I’m so proud of her. Today is a great day. I’m very grateful. Thank you for all your well wishes. I’m sorry I couldn’t respond to every one. Love and respect.”
Dee Snider was in Germany following Twisted Sister’s appearance at Wacken Open Air on Saturday and tweeted: “My 4th grandchild, a girl, was just born – in the car on the way to the hospital! Welcome to the world Parker Snider. Way to get attention!
“Parker Pride Snider was born on the 405 Freeway in Los Angles and mom and baby are both healthy.”
