The story of a Texas doctor who delivered a baby boy having previously delivered the infant's mother 25 years earlier has made waves on social media.

According to reports, OB-GYN Dr. Bryan Cox delivered Lauren Cortez in March of 1995; more than two decades later, the doctor delivered Cortez's son, Logan James on July 26, 2020.

"Lauren came to me as a pregnant lady and she was all excited because her mom loves me, so it was a great situation," Cox told Good Morning America. "It was fun the whole pregnancy."

"Dr. Cox, right when the baby is born, he sings 'Happy Birthday,'" Cortez revealed to GMA. "The fact that he takes that little time to personalize the birth experience meant a lot to me."

"My mom said he sang 'Happy Birthday' to me, and to my brother who was born in '97,"  she continued.

Cortez shared the amazing story on Twitter, where her post swiftly went viral. At the time of writing, it has garnered more than 767k likes and 82k retweets. She wrote, "25 years later, the doctor who delivered me also delivered our son!!"

Cox told Yahoo Life of his new status as a viral sensation:

"My first thought [was] that this was so exciting because my daughter, who is 16, has not had something go viral yet. I beat her to it without even trying.

“I think it’s wonderful that people really want to share such a wholesome story.”

He continued:

“It’s a wonderful reoccurring experience. Lauren, she was as cute as a bug...throughout the pregnancy, she would come in and we would giggle and talk about it. I, of course, asked how [her] mom was doing and if she was excited about being a grandma. When you go through that, you remember the kid as an infant, then at 2 or 3 years old. Then, you don’t see them for quite some time and when they show up again, they’re a woman, but it’s always fun.”

He told Yahoo Life:

“Taking care of pregnant women is one of the highest of highs.

“The conditions that I deal with are intellectually interesting and I’ve been crazy blessed to find medicine. And go into a specialty that I enjoy so much — for which I don’t mind getting up at 4:00 a.m.”

The doctor says that he now had a routine question for anyone giving birth who is under the age of 33: “Did I deliver you?”
