Dara Crouch, 29, of Columbus, Georgia, talked about the candid photos taken during the birth of her baby on April 25. She did not officially know the sex of the baby in advance.

"I look kind of crazy in them, but I think they're great," Crouch, 29, told ABC News. "We have something to look back on had we not have a photographer in the room we would've never seen that."

Crouch, now a mom of two, said that she always thought she'd be having a girl.

"The last boy that we know was born on my side of the family is 50 years ago, but quite honestly it has little to do with the shock in the picture," she added. "I really just thought it was a girl, I really did. We already had a girl and I guess I kind of saw us as 'girl parents.'"

Neely Ker-Fox, owner of Ker-Fox Photography, snapped the candid moment when Crouch found out she had a boy.
