An exasperated Newcastle United fan had the talkSPORT radio hosts in hysterics as he called up the morning after cup success against Southampton on the south coast.
The Magpies took one step closer to the Carabao Cup final with their first-leg victory against The Saints this week ahead of Tuesday's second-leg meeting at St. James' Park.
As long as Eddie Howe's side doesn't lose, they'll book a place in the final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, February 26 and a chance to win the club's first major domestic trophy since 1955.
Should that place in the final be secured, all Newcastle fans will be gunning for a ticket and one fan called talkSPORT to explain the added dilemma he was facing.
The Magpies supporter called George said: "I have got a dilemma. My lass' baby is due February 22 and the cup final is on the 26th. I've already told her, I'm gannin to the final.
"I've already got one four-year-old. At the end of the day, she's off work, I've got to go back soon. It's Wembley, you know what I mean?
"The thing is though, my first bairn, her birthday is the 25th. I've got no luck at the minute! I hope the final gets delayed."
Presenters Jamie O'Hara and Jason Cundy sympathsed with George, who asked the duo if they could even have a word to move the final for his convenience.
A chuckling Jason Cundy eventually said: "I would be speaking to one of the nurses privately saying this is the situation, I've got to go. See if there's anything they can do to help get the baby out."
Newcastle fans in the comments of the video on social media also supported their fellow Magpie's plight.
One wrote: "100% when the kid grows up he’ll understand. If his missus is a true Geordie she will too, just go lad!"
In and amongst the comments was George himself, who spoke of his newfound viral fame. He replied: "Hahah when I rang yesterday I didn’t realise it would this viral."
