Rachel Poole, 31, was stabbed by an intruder in her Texas home last week while chatting on video with her military husband, who is deployed overseas.
Poole was nine months pregnant at the time she was stabbed from behind multiple times by Corey Bernard Moss, who attacked with a stainless steel knife.
During the attack, her husband, Justin Pele Poole, an American soldier stationed thousands of miles away in Asia, saw the attack unfold on FaceTime.
Poole was still in critical condition when her baby, Isabella, was born. Doctors performed a successful cesarean section, her stepfather, Gary Jones, said.
The newborn, thankfully, is listed in good condition.
Police Det. Mike Baranyay told the media that the woman recognized her attacker, who was hiding in the home, and screamed his name to her husband.
